We cover flatpicking, fingerpicking and hybrid picking patterns and techniques, how and when to use a capo to best effect, introduce drone notes, alternating bass lines, slash chords, legato techniques and harmonics; we’ll explore varied rhythmic strumming patterns, touch on practical useful theory, tackle solo fingerstyle approaches and look at music notation and lot more.
The course is suitable for most players and is based on iconic (and some unusual) songs that will add to your repertoire and provide you with extra tools and confidence to improve your playing.
As with all our courses, having a sociable weekend with other guitar hobbyists and having some fun is as important as the teaching and playing is important as the teaching and playing.
We encourage most levels of acoustic player to come along (and we have successfully incorporated a bass player on occasion); but it’s not for the beginner. Average-and-above players who have a few songs under their belts are fine for this course.
