“Stretching Exercises for Guitarists is a great book to have around.  Recently my hand and wrist had become numb and stiff from using a mouse. I found the 'Wrist Flexion Stretch' and it worked great.  This little exercise released the tension from my wrist and the sensation of numbness soon faded.  This is a book that every guitarist should have, a great tool that will help keep you playing.” 
Victor D'Ablaing, MFA in Classical Guitar performance  (Georgia US)
"As a guitar teacher I often come across students who have poor reach on the guitar.  The student usually puts it down to having small hands but having been practicing my own hand stretching exercises myself for countless years I know the story is different.  This is the first book I have come across on the subject and I'm really glad to have found it. However, not only does this book cover hand stretches it also covers good posture and other exercises.  I find the shoulder rotation exercise extremely valuable - My body isn't as young as it used to be and four, one hour sets with a P-Bass around my neck can be hard to endure without some preventative maintenance exercises like these.   The book is well written with clear and concise diagrams and covers the key areas of the body that can benefit from stretches.  The exercises are backed up by a medical professional too which is great to see.”
"With Stretching Exercises for Guitarists, Gareth Evans has put together a collection of exercises, advice and insights that are both useful and entertaining for guitarists. I enjoyed very much. Highly recommended to any musician who would like to improve and enrich their warm-up routine."
Lorenzo Micheli, Concert Classical Guitarist (Italy)
“Aside from all the books dealing with the best methods of learning guitar, music theory and all, there are few books focusing on the right practice environment and a healthy setup for your body. If you're interested in the latter - and you should be - 'Stretching Exercises for Guitarists' is a good start. If you have been lazy about warming up for playing or practicing, trying a couple exercises from this book will help you remember and experience how beneficial this part of your practice routine is. After a short introduction, the book gets right to it and provides you with various exercises for each area of the body. I like the simple instructions and clear drawings which rule out any potential misinterpretations. The book could be read from beginning to end, but can - and should, in my opinion - be used as a flexible tool during your practice time. Thanks to the structure, you can simply focus on one body area if needed or pick one exercise from each section to have it all. Of course, after a while you might pick your favorites and build your own little stretching routine. A seemingly small, but actually crucial factor contributing to me liking this book is it's size! It's small enough to bring with, no matter how light you travel, and works perfectly as a reminder and tool in your everyday life. Let's face it: Warming up isn't everybody's favorite part of playing an instrument and most people tend to neglect it: 'Stretching Exercises for Guitarists' is the small, practical reminder and help that may convince you to start."

"I think this is an excellent publication. I was actually using some of these exercises already e.g. Forearm Flexor 4.3 - 4.5 - 4.8 etc. However, I find the book very thorough yet concise. As a Classical guitarist I would have liked to see some mention of the use of a footstool. Other than that the book is excellent."
