Hello – this is David from Next Level Guitar. I want to let you know that I am very proud to launch my brand new four DVD beginner course. It will get you playing guitar and getting results in the fastest and most efficient manner. This course has over eight hours of instructional materials on four DVDs. I will take you right from the start of your guitar journey all the while making it fun and easy. I make learning guitar infectious and through my proven methods you will want to pick up the guitar and practice and play more,…and more,…and MORE.
Here s the first in a two-DVD lesson series that will be deeply satisfying for any acoustic guitarist who wants to move beyond simple chords and easy strums. Beginning and intermediate players will quickly gain an understanding of guitar basics through the process of building compelling arrangements of well-known, much-loved traditional songs. In an instructional tour de force, Happy details each step, starting with a simple version of each song and then slowly adding chord substitutions, bass lines, harmonies, fill-in licks, fingerpicking patterns and other techniques that eventually create a fully-formed performance piece. By the time you have completed these two DVDs, you ll have gained a better command of the fretboard, increased your repertoire and improved your guitar technique. DVD 1 features songs arranged in dropped D tuning: The Cuckoo, with its haunting mountain modal minor key tonalities; the Caribbean-tinged American ballad Delia s Gone; and The Water is Wide, one of most beautiful and widely sung love songs in the English language.
There is probably no acoustic guitar style as popular, or as mysterious to novices, as alternate-bass fingerpicking. For many aspiring players the ability to maintain a rock-steady rhythmic pulse with their thumb while picking out off-the-beat melody notes with their fingers represents a "holy grail" of country, folk and blues playing. The beauty of this style is that you are providing both the rhythmic accompaniment and the melody notes, similar to a stride piano player's left and right hand combinations.
