Here is what is coming! 31 Days to Fingerstyle Mastery

I'm so excited about this.  

I've been working hard on this one-month, one-time class to help support the growing skills of everyone who wishes to play fingerstyle guitar.

What is this?

31 Days to Fingerstyle Mastery... a systematic approach, using Progressive fingering patterns, in exercises to develop:





    and Comfort for the picking hand (demonstrated by the right)

    While the Left (or fingering hand) moves in a predictable pattern between chords.

It is said that it takes 21 days to ingrain a new habit…

we’ll embed it in 31!

What do you get?

(12) different Absolute Beginning Fingerstyle Exercise and (54) different ThumbBuilder Exercises Demonstrated in a Video, with a pdf handout, and an Audio demonstration track, together with an Audio Backing Track for Practice.

How Do you access these lessons?

1.  There is a new lesson posted here in the Patron Feed for your special tier of sponsorship; AND delivered to your inbox Daily

Who is this for?

This class is NOT for everyone. 

Only offered in January, so the successful student will be able to dedicate the time and attention to invest in their fingering skill development for just ONE MONTH.

It IS for people who are frustrated with their stop and start, or forward 1 step, backward 2 steps progress.

It IS for people who are ready to dedicate 10-20 minutes a day, EACH day in January, to develop the skills that have been eluding them.

There is a Limit of 25 Students so that I can give each student the attention they need and deserve.
