Step-By-Step Fingerstyle Guitar Workouts for Beginners
Shot on location at Joe Robinson’s Nashville studio, Fingerstyle Launchpad is a step-by-step series of lessons and workouts designed to develop your fingerstyle technique from the ground up, at your own pace.
”Learning to play fingerstyle is an extremely rewarding experience for every guitar player but it certainly doesn’t come without its challenges. I hear from students too often that they want to learn fingerstyle, but the learning materials they study are too challenging, too quick, and they find themselves grounded, getting frustrated, and giving up too soon.
I’ve designed this course to take you step-by-step through the most important fingerstyle workouts at just the right pace, and as you work with the course, you’ll play your way through the lessons right along with me.
Learning this way makes learning fingerstyle a whole lot more fun and I think you’ll find it quite a bit easier to get comfortable with the techniques and mechanics. This really will be a launchpad for starting your journey into the world of fingerstyle!”
Joe organized the course into six lesson sets. Each lesson set begins with a new skill workout lesson where you’ll study a new mechanic for your hands to get used to, and then you’ll put those new skills to work on a new etude to help mark your accomplishments and celebrate your progress.
In the first study set, you’ll start out building your foundation for fingerstyle studying the alternating thumb technique and mixing in some basic chord accents over a bluesy chord sequence. Up next, you’ll work on getting your boom-chick sound together with all of the rhythmic interplay between right hand thumb and fingers over a simple chord progression in the key of C.
A walking bass pattern and new four chord progression in the key of A minor is presented in the third section. The fourth study lays the foundation for rolling patterns in the right hand. Study set five builds on a simple rolling technique with a couple of new patterns over a sweet sounding progression in D. And finally in the sixth study set you’ll put it all together with a focus on quicker chord movements in the left hand while playing a classic progression in A major.
Joe will explain and demonstrate all of the key concepts and approaches along the way. You’ll get standard notation and tabs for all of the performance studies. Plus, you’ll be able to use TrueFire’s learning tools to sync the tab and notation to the video lesson. You can also loop or slow down the videos so that you can work with the lessons at your own pace.
