Welcome to Play Acoustic Guitar 9: Advanced Style Variations for late intermediate to advanced students of Acoustic guitar.

This Acoustic Learning Path core course is presented by 4 top TrueFire educators: Tony McManus, Fareed Haque, Alonzo Pennington, and Renier Voet.

The Advanced Style Variations curriculum is comprised of select Acoustic guitar lessons from the educators' existing TrueFire course libraries.

One of the qualities that attracts all of us to the guitar is the virtually infinite range of styles and techniques that are possible on the instrument. Having a grasp on a wide variety of styles and techniques not only broadens your musicality, it opens the door to many more playing opportunities with other musicians. You'll gain more clarity on the instrument overall and expressing yourself on it will become a richer experience. The video guitar lessons in this core course will diversify your skill set and help take your playing to the next level.

Play Acoustic Guitar 9: Advanced Style Variations is organized into 4 sections. In the first section, Fareed Haque presents bossa nova rhythm patterns and etudes. In the second section, Tony McManus presents key techniques and harmonic considerations for performing Celtic music on guitar. Renier Voet passes on essential gypsy jazz techniques and vocabulary in Section 3, and Alonzo Pennington wraps things up in the fourth and final section with some good ole Kentucky thumbpicking.

When you've completed the lessons here in Advanced Style Variations, you'll find more lessons focused on variations in Advanced Style Diversity, also a Play Acoustic Guitar 9 core course.

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.
