Learn the magic of solo fingerstyle guitar with this unique and efficient method.
This course walks you through getting a thorough understanding of what it takes to play solo fingerstyle guitar at a very high level.
The fundamentals are what separate the professionals from the amateurs. We could all learn how to play something by being told what notes to play, but this course shows you the core concepts and the underlying principles behind how to actually internalize and master fingerstyle playing. What you learn here will apply to every other fingerstyle or solo guitar piece of music you ever play!
The material in this course can't be found anywhere else. It's not from a book, it's not from a typical learning approach that you could stumble upon elsewhere. It's from teaching students in real life for over fifteen years and figuring out what works the best, how to teach someone effectively, and how to get exciting outcomes the fastest.
If you've taken any other courses by Jared, you know that he teaches you how to truly understand something and speak the language of music on the guitar in a way that sticks, rather than showing you another song or rote pattern. Jared's excitement and enthusiasm for teaching, learning, and playing will leave you inspired, and you'll see immediate results from the exercises he has designed.
