Welcome to Play Acoustic Guitar 3: Tools & Techniques - the third milestone of your TrueFire Learning Path journey towards becoming a solid Acoustic guitar player.
This Acoustic Learning Path core course is presented by 3 top TrueFire educators: Corey Congilio, Brooks Robertson, and David Hamburger.
They’ll guide your development of the essential skills and get up and running quickly -- no reading music, no boring exercises, no tedious theory to struggle through. In fact, you’ll play your way through the entire course.
In Play Acoustic Guitar 1 and 2, you built up your vocabulary of chords and rhythms; learned how to play several classic songs; and can now play a handful of fingerstyle patterns. Here in Play Acoustic Guitar 3, you’ll learn more strums and rhythm patterns, more picking, more moveable chords, and some important style variations to power up your acoustic guitar playing.
You’ll learn to pick through chords as you move them up the neck, and your blues fingerstyle will benefit from new patterns and songs. Travis picking is used on a ton of tunes, and so you’ll learn to play a classic song with that technique. You’ll learn how to vary a rhythm to spice up any song and then wrap up the course with essential techniques to help you take your acoustic playing to the next level.
The educators demonstrate all of the key examples over jam tracks (where and when applicable) to simulate a real-world application, in a musical context. All of the key examples are also tabbed and notated for your practice, reference and study purposes.
You’ll also get Guitar Pro files so that you can play, loop or slow down the tab and notation as you work through the lessons. Plus, you’ll have all of the available jam tracks to work with on your own.
Take as much time as you need to work through each video guitar lesson before moving on to the next lesson.
