The Stretch System for Guitar

For Adults Only!

This 78-page book shows you an approach most guitar teachers don't teach. They can't teach it because most of their students are children whose hands can bearly stretch three frets. If your hand is big enough, the Stretch System can make the fretboard easier to master.
