Take The Guesswork Out Of How To Get Good

The Fingerstyle Five is for blues guitarists who want to do more than just play the notes.  You probably know that a stronger groove, better practice habits and a working understanding of how to improvise would give you a deeper, more personal connection with your guitar and help you sound the way you've always wanted to.

But it's one thing to know how you want to play, and another to find someone to show you how. The internet is awash in random, one-off lessons and  unreliable tab. There are good lessons out there too, but they tend to focus on playing note-for-note versions of prewar blues standards. Information on improvising is generally aimed only at electric guitar players, and almost no one has any advice on how to actually practice any of this. There's nothing more frustrating than getting clear about what you want to learn, carving out the time and committing to showing up, only to feel confused about what to work on and unsure if it's even going to help.

It shouldn't be so hard to find good, organized fingerstyle guitar lessons that take your passion for learning seriously and provide a clear, step-by-step path to playing better blues guitar. That's why The Fingerstyle Five doesn't overwhelm you with hundreds of songs and thousands of lessons in multiple styles of music. It's for people who want to focus on building a repertoire of fingerstyle blues instrumentals one song at a time, while honing the right-hand coordination and improvisation skills to play them as musically as possible.

If you're serious about becoming a better fingerstyle blues guitarists, join the  membership now using the form below.
