Master Acoustic Guitar Songs and Exercises!
Master guitar songs use advanced chords, bass lines and solos.
It is not necessary to copy the arrangement in the acoustic song lessons, instead aim to understand the song.
Use the scales and arpeggios you’ve learned and improvise with the arrangement. If you can come up with your own version as well, then that is the best way.
The moment you start playing a song in exactly the same way is the same moment the song starts to die from a performance point of view.
In Why Don’t You Do Right?, for example, the chord shapes are constantly changing. What you see in the video is just one example of how to play a song like this, it was one take, next one would be different.
This should also be your aim when you play this type of material. It will ultimately allow music to come through you, rather than from you.
In order to achieve this it is vital to think in chord numbers whenever you play a song. This way you get to the core of the music and can build you parts with ease.
Always follow the DIY TABs roman numerals whenever you learn a new song, you find it in the Guitar Conspiracy.
Complete the S-E P R!
When you completed the exercises here in master guitar you will never have to practice guitar again.
You can now allow music to come through you, not just from you.
Expect the exercises at master level to take at least two months to complete for the full time student (3 hours/day).
Should you struggle with a mode or arpeggio shape in any of these exercises, go back to the Advanced Guitar and practice the specific shape some more.
Once these exercises start to pick up in BPM you will be able to complete your modal scale exercises in less than 10 minutes.
Keep pushing the BPM, notating your progress in the Work Book.
Pair this knowledge with arpeggios and modes to complete your understanding of the fret board.
