As you advance your technical guitar skills, your opportunities expand exponentially. Pros with advanced technique can choose from a higher quality and wider range of gigs including session work. Amateurs with advanced skills will always be welcome at jams or open mic nights. Most importantly though, advanced technical skills provide the firepower to free yourself creatively with improvisations and compositions. The video guitar lessons in this core course will focus on strengthening and broadening your technique to an advanced level.
Play Acoustic Guitar 8: Advanced Rhythm Principles is organized into 3 sections. In the first section, Massimo Varini advances your understanding of extensions and voicings, discusses sonic qualities, and then guides you through a series of rhythm parts for verses, intros, outros, and choruses. In Section 2, Pete Huttlinger is back with more fingerpickin' licks but this time prepare yourself for some serious time in the shed. In the third and final section, Muriel Anderson rounds out your yearning for learning with 10 right-hand fingerstyle techniques you must know.
The educators demonstrate all of the key examples over jam tracks (where and when applicable) to simulate a real-world application, in a musical context. Key examples are also tabbed and notated for your practice, reference and study purposes. Take as much time as you need to work through each video guitar lesson before moving on to the next lesson.
