Finished the L&M Fingerstyle course today.


Recommended Posts

After 10 months of fun, I finished the L&M Fingerstyle course today.

It was for me the final one of the 4 Learn and Master DVD courses (L&M Guitar, The Song Hits, Blues Guitar and Fingerstyle) to be completed. Due to Covid 19, I suddenly had more time for guitar practice, so this course came at the right time.

With some side steps, primarily into some other Blues and Rock courses, the total L&M cycle took about 5 years. 

Learning and playing songs was and still is my main goal, and with this Fingerstyle course finalized, numerous fingerstyle songs and arrangements are now within reach.

The course is great and covers all possible genres of fingerstyle. I especially enjoyed the classical guitar session, as this was completely new to me.

What I want to do next is to dig into the Merle Travis style a bit deeper. There is an introduction into that style in session 8, but I want to spend more time and learn more of the "Freight Train" type of songs 😀

 

Wim.

Congratulations!   I've been going through the Fingerstyle course as well - taking my time to make sure I can really digest it.    I'm just now on Lesson 5 (classical) so a lot of great learning yet to come.

Congrats WIM..........I have the course and played around with the first few lessons. Trying to wrap up all the misc material I have wandered off in the weeds with. Got to get back to a tighter structure.

Wow Wim, nice done!!!

if you like Fingerpicking in Merle Travis Style or just delta blues fingerpicking, I would strongly recommend Stefan Grossman's Guitar Workshop! There are so many courses to follow there: Blues Fingerpicking, Bottleneck... I Started some courses 2 years before I even heard of Learn and master. Until today I follow courses there. Great stuff!!!

Congratulations.  Did you notice that the last song Steve teaches in the Fingerstyle course was the very first intro song that Steve played at the beginning of the main Learn and Master Guitar course?  Check it out. LOL

Thanks, William.

Lesson 5 contains some of my favorite songs of this course: Malaguena and Lagrima. And the unavoidable Canon in D of course :). Enjoy the rest of the course!

I will check it out. Travis picking is really a next level challenge to me. But it gives such a rich sound.

I was not aware, but it makes a lot of sense. Steve starts and finishes the whole Learn and Master cycle with the same song "Paulette". The L&M journey ends where it started.

Thanks for you kind words, Neil.

I think @ShadowBoxer86 was the first one to complete the whole L&M cycle 😀.

Steve has released some great new resources over the past months that I have not started yet. It's time to take a closer look at his triads lessons now as well.

Take care,

Wim.

Yes, the Triads Course is on my agenda also. Triads are used frequently in jazz guitar, so I think this will be very beneficial to me. (Im already playing some, but a deeper understanding of the positions would be better) . N
