ACOUSTIC GUITAR 020: Review - Continuing Acoustic Education

Acoustic Guitar 020: 

Review - Continuing Acoustic Education...

In this final review lesson, I will be running through a group of priority subjects that we have covered over the last nine months. I believe these subjects are the ones which players should be focused on for long-term success in the performance of both steel-string and nylon-string acoustic guitar...

In this lesson, we'll explore how to work toward "zeroing in" on a collection of some of the most important acoustic topics. These will include subject areas such as; how to create and trace out simple melodies from scales and chords, as well as, how to apply a wide array of different acoustic finger-picking techniques.

Example one, takes a simple melodic line (operating as a single-note scalar statement) from within the key of "C Major," (example 1a), and expands on the idea using a fingerstyle acoustic guitar approach, (example 1b). Example 1b, explores how to take the single note line and add slight modifications to incorporate interesting groove and phrasing.

Example two, breaks down of a simple open position pattern picking approach (example 2a), involving a key of "G Major," preset plucking pattern consistently applied across the string sets. Along with the plucking pattern, the part applies a consistent rhythm pattern used across the 2-bar phrase. The result is a solid and flowing feel.

PART TWODrills and exercises in example three are designed to help build and maintain a high degree of technical skill. It is important to apply at least a few daily drills to help maintain good plucking and good fretting hand control. The drills in example three will help guitarists understand a number of specific exercise areas that can be focused on.

Example four completes our final-review lesson by exploring the importance of developing proficiency with the more advanced acoustic playing styles of "Classical" and "Jazz."

These genres are important, because these two guitar styles are at the pinnacle of higher level playing technique. The benefits of developing more skill in both Jazz and Classical will result in better ability and skill across many other acoustic guitar playing areas.
