All at Once: Fingerstyle Guitar

Live Guitar Course: Intermediate Fingerstyle Guitar Course

If you've seen a good fingerstyle player, you can certainly attest to the fact that they are doing it "All at Once." This course is all about melodic fingerstyle guitar, which combines chords, rhythm and melody into one beautiful tapestry. In this progressive course, we’ll use the songs we’ve known for the longest time as a way inside the arranging process, before adding in other tunes.

In 2016 and 2017, we completely re-engineered our recording studio with top of the line gear, including a full suite of 4k cameras complimented by a new audio outfit. The result is beautiful live streams!

Each live course is equipped with full tablature and even backing tracks. Our live lessons are focused, planned, and even provide homework on how to improve and look forward to the next week.
