Grooves and motifs will be established and elaborated upon by:
1. Using both familiar and unconventional fingerings to explain open and closed chord voicings and adding multiple-string hammer-ons, pull-offs, and slides as part of the left-hand mix.
2. Giving the right hand a more diverse role by having the thumb take on bass part and embellishment duties while fingers take on their own unique melodic & support tasks.
3. Borrowing a trick or 2 from the “Book of Telecaster.”
Stylistically, the music used to accomplish the above is drawn from Folk, Blues, Pop, R&B, & Funk. It is my hope that understanding, and mastery of the concepts and maneuvers shown on this recording will help expand musical horizons and the enjoyment of fingerstyle guitar playing. ©2019,
