You Can Learn The Secrets to Playing Smoothly...Even If You Are a Beginner With Zero Fingerstyle Guitar Experience
Hi, I’m Brett and tell me something:
Have you ever been rejected?
That’s how I felt once, before I started playing fingerstyle guitar.
I started playing classical guitar when I was 8. My parents sent me first to violin, then piano, and finally guitar lessons.
And truth be told, I would actually poo-pooh the other styles of music because I thought they were inferior.
I thought that way, until I was rejected from that world.
This didn’t happen with guitar, mind you. You see, I wanted to be an orchestral musician.
So, I auditioned to a large musical school to learn French horn.
And I totally bombed on the audition… That day, my dreams of being a professional orchestral musician went right out the window.
But, there was always the guitar. My first instrument.
So, I went back to university to study guitar performance, again with classical guitar.
I learned a lot about music and guitar performance during my time there. But once everything was done…
I realized Classical Guitar just wasn't the centre of my musical focus.
And the other styles of music, such as rock or heavy metal, just didn’t interest me.
Then one day, when I was advertising guitar lessons in a local café, a client saw my poster and told me to check out Tommy Emmanuel.
I said, Who?
Remember, I was largely ignorant of other musical styles outside of Classical guitar…
So that evening, I watched his video of Pink Panther and..
It was awesome!
Here was the acoustic guitar, but like it was supposed to sound..
It was my coming home moment, if you know what I mean
I decided to dedicate myself to learning fingerstyle guitar.
Even though I was an expert at classical guitar, I still had to learn a bunch of new techniques to play fingerstyle guitar.
For instance, I had no idea you were allowed to slap the guitar…
At the time, my harmonics, rasgueado and tapping techniques needed improvement
But one by one, I began mastering these techniques.
As I was learning these skills, I realized most people were probably learning them backwards.
You see, I started with the fundamentals, in Classical guitar, which gave me solid right and left hand technique.
But I saw a lot of courses out there that teach you “percussive fingerstyle guitar” or something like that.
And these courses just assume you’ve got perfect technique, when the reality is that this is usually not the case.
Moreover, most of us don’t have 16 hours a day to perfect Travis picking like Tommy Emmanuel did..
And I didn’t even tell you the worst part about it
I came across a lot of tabs online that are just plain wrong.
In reality, most tabs that you can find online for fingerstyle guitar kind of suck.
Because, the person making the tabs wasn’t 100% sure of what they were transcribing.
For instance, if you don’t have a solid understanding of tempo and meter, a concept that I cover in my course, your tabs will have glaring mistakes.
This is why the tabs that I come across are far from 100% accurate.
But let’s get back to technique.
So, if you are self-taught, you may have skipped past the basic fundamentals.
But I want you to not get stuck at a certain level.
Let's go over some common reasons why you can get stuck
- Your right hand technique isn't correct. This makes playing repeated notes or fast arpeggios really hard!
- You haven't learned an advanced technique, like harmonics or rasgueado, that you need to learn a song.
- Your playing doesn't sound clear, clean, or loud enough.
- You have trouble playing a certain passage quickly or getting it to sound clean.
Master the Key Concepts and You Will Improve 10 X
I want to help you identify these common problems and master playing fingerstyle guitar. This is why I created the course Play Fingerstyle Guitar Now!
The course grew out of a need to help fingerstyle guitarists play songs by Youtube stars like Sungha Jung and Eddie Van Der Meer.
I have helped thousands of guitarists improve their fingerstyle guitar technique through my YouTube channel. See some of their comments here.
