Samo njoj otkrivaju
I moja čula,
Jer ona zna
Povereno da čuva.
Samo njoj veruju
Jer ona iskreno kaže
Kad treba da presahnu,
A kad jače
Da se plače.
Ona me opominje
Da moje srce laže,
Kako će svi oni
Koji u njemu ljubav traže,

Balkan Capriccio for Solo Guitar

“Stevan Jovic has displayed leadership and entrepreneurial initiative by successfully going through the steps of developing a product needed in guitar teaching. His idea is creative and evidently unique!”
In cooperation with Strings By Mail, Stevan Jovic, the inventor of the Practice-Right presented his revolutionary device at the foremost classical guitar convention and festival in the US – Guitar Foundation of America.
“New students, particularly little kids, seem to have a particularly hard time keeping a good relaxed wrist position with the wrist out enough to be able to use the fingers and thumb effectively. Stevan Jovic’s Practice-Right is a clever way of helping to keep such students’ wrists bent correctly, and it does help. Bravo!”
