Totally Guitars Weekly Wrap Up April 12th, 2019
This week I made a quick trip to Phoenix to host a meeting of The Guitar League. A small group got together Tuesday night at a Marriott Hotel and I think they all got something to work on to get them to the next level. Some of the things I talked about included some essential techniques and songs that everyone should incorporate into their practice routine. I mentioned a lot of those in today’s update as well.
A few new lessons this week; The Star Of The County Down, done with a ‘do it yourself’ twist as far as the progression and rhythmic feel, Barbra Streisand’s classic Evergreen, from the previous incarnation of A Star Is Born featuring Streisand and Kris Kristofferson, and Are You Gonna Be My Girl by Jet, quite a different genre than the other lessons this week. We also like to occasionally honor my partner and founder of TG with bands from down under.
A couple new packs flew off the shelves this week as well, one featuring The Red Hot Chili Peppers and another on Pearl Jam songs.
And for all our American members, I hope Uncle Sam is kind and forgiving this weekend…
What do you believe are the essential fingerstyle pieces and techniques that would move a player from intermediate to advanced?
