One extremely important point that Peter makes in this video is how to actually push down on the frets of your guitar with your fretting hand. Many beginners falsely believe that you need to push down on the string so that it touches the wood. This is not the case. You only have the push the string down hard enough to where it is touching the fret. This is demonstrated in the video below as well as some other great tips. I hope you find this lesson helpful!
