How to Build Awesome Fingerpicking Instrumentals
Guitarist and educator Toby Walker understands what you need to bring your guitar technique to a higher level. This fantastic lesson, for intermediate and experienced fingerpickers alike, teaches three exciting, performance-worthy guitar solos. Toby starts with an easy version of each piece, then adds the “bells and whistles” that build a show-stopping solo from the ground up.
New from Woody Mann! Take Control of Your Fretboard!
Woody Mann’s extraordinary 2-DVD set teaches new repertoire along with fretboard concepts that will give you an in-depth understanding of how to build great fingerstyle guitar arrangements. At the same time, you’ll learn ten foundational tunes covering country blues, gospel and jazz-inflected originals from Rev. Gary Davis, Lonnie Johnson, Eddie Lang and other greats.
Woody deconstructs each piece, providing a virtual toolbox of techniques that will build a true understanding of your instrument. His “piano style” approach to fingerpicking - the thumb emulating the left hand bass notes and the fingers playing the right hand melody - will help you develop a true “two-handed” style on the guitar.
