Acoustic Fingerstyle Level 2

Intermediate Level

Welcome to our Acoustic Fingerstyle Level 2 course! We're so excited to have Thomas back in the studio to deliver this incredible course that will take your fingerstyle skills up another level. We continue this course where Level 1 left off, meaning it is a direct sequel to the first Level. The course is all about taking the basics and fundamentals of level 1, and start developing some very well known and exciting techniques, such as "claw strumming" and "slap"! These techniques take your fingerstyle basics and really bring them to life.

Unit 1: The Grab

In this first unit, Thomas will be introducing you to the idea of "grabbing chords". Everything we've done up to this point has been working with single fingerpicking, which is an essential foundation.

Unit 2: The Sweep

Our next challenge is to take the basic concept from the previous unit and level it up by introducing more complex chord shapes and quicker changes

Unit 3: The Slap

We're going to take another big step up in this unit, by introducing percussion to our fingerstyle practice. We often call this technique "the slap", as we add a literal hit to the guitar strings on the 2nd and 4th beat of the bar.

Unit 4: The Melody Maker

For our final unit, we will take everything we have learned so far and put it all together in this beautiful piece.
