Interactive Video Masterclass For Guitar Presented By Mike Dawes
Named ‘Best Acoustic Guitarist in the World’ two years in a row by Total Guitar Magazine/MusicRadar reader polls, Mike Dawes’ ability to seamlessly combine melody, bass, harmony, and percussion leaves audiences absolutely stunned with his original music and massively popular covers.
Whatever style of guitar you play, you’ve likely already been blown away by watching one of his videos online (100-millions views across all social platforms!), or caught him live at a gig, festival, or performing with Justin Hayward of The Moody Blues. His progressive fingerstyle genius is best summed up by Guitar Player magazine, “Jaw-dropping!”
Fortunately for we guitar players and music learners, Mike is also an accomplished and passionate educator who has written countless articles for magazines and conducted standing-room-only workshops all over the world.
We are thrilled to welcome Mike to the family with his first TrueFire course, Progressive Fingerstyle, First Steps. You will likewise thank your lucky stars as you learn and play your way through Mike’s curriculum, which will get your own “progressive fingerstyle” technique up and running in less time than you would ever imagine.
”As a progressive rock player I was ultimately drawn to the acoustic guitar due to its vast potential for polyphony and self-accompaniment. For the next 15 years, I combined my influences to produce a variety of tones, textures, and percussive effects on a single acoustic guitar.
In this course, we’ll start by ditching the pick and expanding your instrument’s potential with progressive fingerstyle guitar right-hand techniques, alternate tunings, harmonics, legato and staccato fluidity, body percussion and more.
This method accurately mirrors my own journey as a player, cutting out years of trial and error to deliver you results as efficiently as possible. I invite guitar players of all abilities to try something new and join me on this progressive fingerstyle journey. It begins here…”
Mike will thoroughly explain and demonstrate essential progressive fingerstyle guitar concepts as you learn and play your way through his contextual series of guitar lessons. You’ll get standard notation and tabs for all key examples and performance studies.
Plus, you’ll be able to use TrueFire’s learning tools to sync the tab and notation to all the video lessons. You can also loop or slow down the videos to work with the lessons at your own pace.
Grab your guitar, ‘ditch the pick” and let’s take those first steps with Mike Dawes!
