  • Hello there GMC'ers!

    Today's lesson is dedicated to a wide variety of acoustic techniques, combining a lot of dynamics and melodies to create a great atmosphere using just an acoustic guitar.

    I will let the lesson take you into this amazing world of acoustic playing and recommend you to search and listen to players such as Andy McKee, Antoine DuFour, Mike Dawes or Michael Hedges and John Gomm - essential players for anyone who wants to dive into a complete listening experience regarding this style.

    - slap and pop
    - finger picking - Merle Travis style

    - building nice melodic lines using the natural minor scale
    - shifting time signatures
