Description

Learning is a process of taking the impossible and making it possible, this 13-hour course is like many private lessons. If you’ll follow closely, and play slowly, again and again, the movements will eventually get into your body and fingers, and then it happens, we can play the thing that we couldn’t play before.

And that exactly how I teach in this course, slowly and repetitively.

So take your time, play, and it will happen.

I hope I manage to deliver you my love for fingerstyle guitar and music.

The course 1st section is: TECHNIQUES AND FUNDAMENTALS needed in order to play fingerstyle guitar.

The 2nd section is an EXERCISE - PICKING PATTERNS section with many exercises that will lead the way to play fingerstyle songs and arrangements.

And, a SIX TUNE SECTION, with REAL songs and arrangements that will take your playing to the next level. It is a really wide repertoire, from a classic tune, through folk blues songs, another fingerstyle arrangements for two beautiful songs, and another blues song for the swing.

Another Very important section is the "HOW TO LEARN METHOD" section, in which I explain and walk through 5 GUIDELINES FOR LEARNING AND SUCCEEDING in learning a new tune. A guidelines that I use my self and with my students. Also in my teachings here I show exactly how to use them and how to practice and play.

A bonus section that I added to the course is The Four Steps For Making Your Own Fingerstyle Arrangement, in which I explore the ways and steps for creating beautiful arrangements.

Hope to see you inside the course.

+ The Learning Process
7 lectures 07:23

I think that this is one of the most important parts of this course, These are still my guidelines each time I start to learn a new song. I still sometimes feel intimidated when looking at a piece of music, tabs or notation, and see that it is long or maybe hard, BUT, when understanding these guidelines and following them I'll manage to play and get into my fingers and system many new tunes.
