5 star review for the course...WITH the "WHY"!
"yes, very informative. material is presented very well and in a very understandable manner. finding Chris's teaching method to be exceptional in really being able to reach a total beginner with these concepts. i have practiced these technique thru other resources and none were as clear or as well taught as Chris is doing in this course. things may seem a little redundant or slow in the first couple of sections, but all of that is important and he is making sure you understand each nuance so that by the time you reach the chord progression at the end of section 4, you have practiced the movements and you understand how to put it all together. other teaching resources i have used have not been this clear or as well organized with these techniques, and i have learned a lot of things i've been doing not so ergonomic or correct. this is very very good!" - Daryl C.
"Your lessons are so good. The way you break it down, into half a measure at a time and explaining the beats, really I don’t think it’s possible to break it down any further, and it makes it accessible to me. " - Elaine H.
Aren't you tired of learning random guitar skills and techniques from various online sources and feeling like you're really getting nowhere?
I've been teaching guitar for more than 30 years! I have multiple fixes for every possible question but one of the BIGGEST MISTAKES I see guitar students make is by skipping the absolute fundamentals. That's why I start from the very beginning so I KNOW that you have everything you need to play the guitar well from the very beginning.
"I would recommend Chris Jacome to anyone who wishes to learn Flamenco guitar, or to just experience this beautiful style." - Wes W.
You, YES YOU, will learn the essentials of guitar technique and within a few short weeks you will be playing some incredible flamenco rhythms with your guitar skills!
By the end of this course you will know more about how to play guitar, how to improve and how to practice CORRECTLY to achieve RESULTS than many highly-advanced guitarists.
My more than 30 years of guitar teaching experience has yielded many tools, techniques and tips that I share with all my students to provide maximum understanding and results as quickly as possible. I have found that by sharing the WHY behind the techniques allows online students to self-correct and get extraordinary results.
This is truly a zero to HERO flamenco rumba rhythm course.
