Acoustic Fingerstyle Level 1Back to courses
It's time to ditch the pick and start playing some fingerstyle! In this course Thomas gets you started with the fundamental techniques and ideas you'll need to become a great fingerstyle player!
In Unit 1 we cover the absolute basics. We take all of the main open chord shapes that you already know, and explain how you would use the different fingerstyle patterns to pick through each string.
In Unit 2 we take it up to the next gear by bringing in chord inversions and embellishments to our fingerstyle patterns. We focus on a full folk style track that really encapsulates the sound of this wonderful genre.
In Unit 3 we really jump up a notch, and enter the world of hip hop fingerstyle! It's so much fun to see just how applicable this style is to a wide range of music, and this track demonstrates that perfectly.
Finally, Unit 4 brings everything together so far, but ramps up the difficulty. We combine chords, melody, embellishments and a range of fingerstyle patterns to create a country pop masterpiece that you will absolutely love learning!
