It is all about you. If you are a ‘do it yourself’ type the courses and posts you will find here can help you at a fraction of the cost of private lessons. Or it can supplement those private lessons in a personal way. The lessons and techniques have been developed and refined over decades. There will be video lessons, sheet music, lyric sheets with chords, and playalong audio files to assist you in working at your own pace and in the way that works best for you.
Guitar Techniques for the Folk and Indie Artist
A beginning course but you may be surprised at how far it will take you. It assumes you have never before picked up a guitar. Learn your basic Folk chords with open strings, the five Folk Keys, and the most fundamental way to fingerpick. Be introduced to the number system for chords, transposing, and use of a Capo. Apply every lesson to great old Folk Songs and Spirituals, and begin building a personal Repertoire.
An awesome course all about the fingerpicking patterns. Each technique is applied to several great old Folk Songs and Spirituals. Begin with the most simple pattern and then build and build until you get to versions of the Travis Pick. Sheet music and playalong files are included. Continue building you Repertoire.
Adding bass runs to your accompaniments can make you sound awesome. And they are not really that difficult if you know the how, when, and why. This course covers all the basic patterns in the five Folk Keys. Bass runs from The I To V chords, the IV to V, I To IV, V to vi, I to ii, and even applies them to the Travis Pick and other picking patterns. Step up your game.
