Lesson notes

An essential tool for any advancing fingerstyle guitarist is the backbeat, or slap technique.

As guitarists, we tend to play chords, bass lines, melodies and occasionally all three at once.

There are many great fingerstyle guitarists who do this, but only a select few are also masters of the back-beat.

By learning to incorporate this percussive effect into your playing, you’ll instantly take the groove and “pocket” of the song to the next level.

If you can already finger pick, then do yourself a favor and learn this insanely useful technique… you’ll never want to play without it again!
