New 2020 Guitarist Toolkit

Acoustic Learning

Expand beyond simple strums and open chords

If you have been stuck at the beginner stage of acoustic guitar playing for too long then this toolkit is exactly what you need. To start, we take the open chords and move them up the neck to create deep, lush voicings. Then, we look at common chord progressions and how they are used to create songs. These 2 packs alone unlock the ability to play thousands of songs.. but we take things much further with a look at capos, licks, and of course.. copious JamTracks to play along with.
