Adventures in Fingerstyle Guitar
Learn some of the elements that have made Peppino D'Agostino one of the most sought-after artists on today's acoustic guitar scene! On this terrific video lesson, Peppino, an engaging and delightful teacher, breaks down his musical techniques in a way that is clear and easy to follow for all intermediate players.
Italian-born guitarist and composer Peppino has developed several innovative approaches to fingerstyle guitar. In addition to his lush chords and Mediterranean melodic sensibility, he plays bass, chords and melody with just his left hand while using his right to provide percussive accompaniment. You'll learn how he does this, along with the unusual tunings, funky tapping and new fingerpicking ideas he uses to create his rhythms, colors and tones.
Peppino continually stretches the boundaries of acoustic playing, yet his music is very accessible for learning guitarists. His evocative melodies, rich chord progressions, percussive rhythms and effects will give you fresh, new ideas about the guitar, and will put your playing on a whole new level. Peppino's in-depth explorations of four of his compositions, Why Not?, A Glimpse of Times Past, Desert Flower and Born In The Sea, will provide you with a myriad of powerful ideas and new material.
