Fresh from the LickLibrary Studios is a new double DVD set, Learn To Play Classic Acoustic Tracks. Popular tutor, Danny Gill, takes you note for note through five classic tracks with over three hours of guitar lessons that help you explore the theories and techniques of the finger picking style of playing.
Learn to Play Classic Acoustic Tracks (RRP £24.99) features the slow melodic Dust In The Wind, written by Kerry Livgren of Kansas as a finger exercise to learn finger picking. There is also the easy beginner song Father and Son by Cat Stevens, which has a nice folk feel to it and Led Zeppelin’s cover of Babe I’m Gonna Leave You, the ideal track to jam to. Then looking at capoed playing Danny walks you through Here Comes the Sun by George Harrison of The Beatles and Landslide by Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac. Both of which contain interesting picking patterns.
In these guitar lessons from LickLibrary, Danny Gill shares with you a number of tips and techniques that will help you improve your right hand technique. He also demonstrates a few tricks that you can use when playing an acoustic guitar rather than an electric one. You can easily watch how the fingers of Danny’s right hand move independently, playing non adjacent strings, whilst you can also see what his left hand is doing and where the fret is capoed with the split screen production of the video.
You can find Learn To Play Classic Acoustic Tracks at LickLibrary along with the related Perfect Partner Sets, which includes the jamtrax for these guitar lessons.
