    How to play ACOUSTIC GUITAR with ADAM PALMA

    Here’s an online video guitar lesson course by guitarist Adam Palma.. I think a lot of you will really benefit from this channel…. but this particular video is more of an introduction than anything,  which he describes what the concept for lessons that he is giving is all about. Basically, Adam says that it doesn’t really matter what level you are at with the guitar as this course is an interactive set of lessons by request. Yea, by request. So, […]

  • Django In A Box II

    Django In A Box II

    Here’s another great transcribed video by  Gilles Rea of Django’s Improvisation n 1 from 1937. Django’s playing here is just too much… in fact, Giles even slows this down half time at about 3:10 on the vid, as full speed is incomprehensible. Check out the other Django In A Box vid … that too, so amazing.

  • Dario Cortese Plays Jerry’s Breakdown: And Then Shows You How

    Dario Cortese Plays Jerry’s Breakdown: You know, I see a lot of these instructional videos teaching someone else’s songs such as Jerry’s Breakdown which was written by Jerry Reed. Now, I’d normally much prefer to hear Jerry Reed play this song than some unknown guitarist. But You Know What? Dario Cortese really can pick the you know what out of this song! Here’s what he writes:  Learn Jerry’s Breakdown, by Dario Cortese: “Howdy. In this country guitar video lesson I’m […]

  • Brad Davis: Double Down Up Guitar Technique

    Here’s a video by Brad Davis that holds somewhat of the key to modern flatpicking. It’s called the “double down up guitar technique” which is really a form of sweep picking (I will get to that in a moment). One positive reason this is such a cool technique is the conservation of energy on the right hand, as the continual up and down is a very strenuous. The negative is the amount of practicing you have to do just to […]

  • Quick Fingerpickin’ Guitar Lesson

    Many times I find that these YouTube quick lesson videos are not helpful, in that the instructor, be it an unknown guitarist or a famous picker, leaves a bunch of key elements out that make it difficult to pick up the concept. But I thought that this one was fairly easy and something standard that anyone wanting to fingerpick should know and learn. Life changing? The title at YouTube says that this little lesson will change your life… Well it’s […]

  • David Russell- His Secret to His Guitar Success

    In this video, Virtuoso guitarist David Russell gives some great insights on what makes him tick as a guitarist. He explains that he has a routine for himself, usually first thing in the morning. “Start with basics” he says, and warm up getting your hands acclimated to the guitar. This routine of starting each morning is what he calls “his secret” to good guitar. He also goes on to explain the importance of enthusiasm- and why it’s important to take a […]

  • Tommy Emmanuel- Technique to Artificial Harmonics

    Did you see that video I posted last week with Tommy Emmanuel performing all of those crazy harmonics? If you missed it, here it is…. http://acousticguitarvideos.com/979/tommy-emmanuel-harmonics-in-another-dimention/ Well in this above video Tommy demonstrates how he does it. I found it fascinating….  not only for the harmonic lesson but his talk about  ”house cleaning” on the guitar. This is very important and something that I’ve been personally paying good attention to recently. If you keep repeating the same thing over and […]

  • Josh Williams, Tony Watt, Bob Harris: Learning Bluegrass Guitar

    I said I was going to avoid putting videos I’m in on this site.. but a friend of mine talked me into it. Well, I don’t really consider this a music video because all we are doing is talking about what it took  to learn the bluegrass guitar and get better on our instruments. But I’ve had so many people tell me that our hints were so beneficial- hope this will help some others as well. This video was filmed at […]
