was raised in a classical household full of music, and started piano at age 4 and violin at age 7. She eventually competed in international competitions and quickly toured with 2 different
orchestras. Through her classical music experience, she taught herself how to play the acoustic guitar and eventually moved to the world of electric. Yvette became acquainted with Strandberg Guitars
through playing their Boden 7-string.
She is currently touring and playing with her band, Covet and has toured both Japan and Europe. In her spare time, Yvette takes care of birds, teaches art, and also produces drawings and paintings.
Yvette takes most of her compositional inspiration from nature, particularly the sea. Her two-handed tapping/finger picked playing style has been described as “reminiscent of playing the piano”, which fits with her classical upbringing.
Everything sounds the same. These chords are lifeless. My guitar is stale.
If you are interested in writing or learning music that is melodic, emotionally driven, and harmonically detailed, then this course is for you! Break out of the usual habits and go-to chord shapes you are familiar with, and get inspired by the world of open tunings. Yvette will introduce you to how they can be utilized in writing full-sounding, melodic music, along with dedicated lessons for various techniques and song-writing tips.
This comprehensive course will start with an introduction to open tunings, and then introduce players to more complex fingerpicking patterns. This will also introduce players to compound time signatures.
Learn about how combining techniques adds sonic texture (e.g staccato vs legato, timbre and tone quality), and gradually learning riffs in an open tuning that incorporate various fingerpicking and tapping techniques.
Learn various two-handed tapping techniques and fingerpicking exercises. Achieve polyphony and texture, and add interest and fullness to any melodic line. These are great tools for writing lush sounding and melodic guitar riffs.
Yvette will also show you healthy and effective playing form, and how to get the most efficiency out of your practice time. Build hand independence and learn two-handed tapping that utilizes fingerpicking and tapping simultaneously.
