About the Guitar Lesson Plan
Interactive Video Guitar Instruction
While a single-note line — a lick — is certainly fair game in here, the bread-and-butter of acoustic playing is covered in 50 lessons demonstrating fingerpicking patterns, open-string voicings, changes with bass lines, alternate tunings, Brit-pop strums, left-hand mutes, double-stops, funk patterns, alternating bass, movable chord-shapes, advanced voicings with open strings, barre chords concepts, Travis-picking, descending bass lines, hammer-ons and pull-offs, alternate chord voicings, movable chord shapes with pedal tones, advanced chord voicing concepts including open strings integration, mixing barre chords with open strings, and harmonics. Rich also shows you the tips and tricks that help set the styles of such acoustic masters as Chet Atkins, Neil Young, Pete Townshend, James Taylor and Jimmy Page apart from the pack.
Add these 50 licks to your acoustic arsenal and you'll have the insight and chops to deliver the perfect mood and texture for any tune – from acoustic power comping to delicate fingerstyle work.
