Guitar Speed Training – Discovering What Your Hands Are Made Of By Tennyson Williams, Author of The Essential Guide To Guitar Virtuosity   A funny way to jump into this article is to literally talk about what your hands are made of.

Blog / 10/11/2013

Is Hypnosis Real? Is It A Sham?   A lot of people who begin their research into hypnosis often ask the question “Is hypnosis real?” This is a very valid question, and is not one that should be dismissed. The answer is of course that it is very real, but being an unregulated industry, there are a number of so called “gurus” and “hypnotists” who really don’t have a level of training that is consistent with more professional hypnotists. This can of course lead people to believe, after one or two failed attempts with hypnosis, that it doesn’t work. The reason it fails is never because it doesn’t work on the person.

It has come a long way within the past thirty years. What was once a field…
