О курсе

Have you ever wanted to play an extended guitar solo but you hands just weren't up to the task? These picking exercises should build that speed and flexibility you need.

The Country Guitar: Picking Exercises course based on a 25 minute workout designed to build chops, endurance and accuracy over the next 30 days. 

This workout is based on a 25 minute routine (although if your short on time, you can
modify as needed). 

There's a series of 24 examples to be played along with the provided mp3 drum tracks. Use the Daily Practice Log to track your speed and playing time over the 30 day period. This easily allows you to see your progress as you move through the course. 

This course borrows concepts from fitness programs (consistency/tracking) as well as from productivity methods like the Pomodoro Technique to help you get the most out of this workout.

This is not a routine with just a bunch of boring scales, there are some really cool fun patterns that you can use to create your own licks and solos. 

This course focuses on 5 different techniques:

  • Alternate Picking

  • Hybrid Picking

  • Banjo Rolls

  • Scales

  • and Licks!

  • 1 Hour & 21 Minutes: This course is packed full with Exercises and Licks you can be using by this weekends gig.

  • Shows You the Step-by-Step Process: Examples shown for each Exercise & Lick at Normal & Slow Speeds.

  • PLUS It's easy to follow along with the PDF printable TABS!

  • Right & Left Hand Close-Ups in Picture-in Picture Format: Close-up Shots for Easy Learning. A total of 3 camera angles. Left, Right & Center.

  • Video Format
    for Accelerated Learning: Unlike private lessons, the Video format lets
    you Go at Your Own Pace and Allows You to watch as many times as it
    takes for You to Get It Down!

  • MP3 Drum Tracks: Practice along with the included Drum Tracks at different tempos to help Build Speed and Improve Your Timing.
  • PLUS I'll show you a simple 5 minute warm-up routine to help loosen the muscles.

And while this course is aimed at country guitar players, you don't have to be a chicken picker to get something from this course. Even if your a Blues Player or Rocker Guitarist, I'm confidant this course will help improve your right hand technique.

In this course you will also get printable TABS in PDF format, MP3 drumtracks, and a printable Daily Tracking Log.

You are backed by Udemy's 30 Day money back guarantee.

Welcome to Country Guitar: Picking Exercises. Here is a quick introduction to the course. If you ever have questions or comments please feel free to use the discussion section within this course. Also you can message me anytime. I'm here to help.
Your Downloads
Here are you downloadable material for the course. Print out the PDFs as it will make it easier for you to follow along. The MP3 drum tracks are about 5 minutes long so you'll want to drop them into a Sequencer (ProTools, Logic, etc..) and loop it to make it play for 25 minutes. You can also use programs like Amazing Slow Downer or Transcribe.If you use the GuitarPro Software, I've included the gpx files. GPX is not a supported file type here on Udemy so I put them in a ZIP folder. Download and uncompress the zip file, then open the gpx file with your GuitarPro Software.
This is a disclaimer. You'll be doing a repetitive motion for an extended period of time with this workout. If you have any discomfort, please stop. Take a break. Don't over exert yourself. You know your body and only you know when to stop. Take breaks as needed.
Use a new pick for this workout. It will help you play cleaner. I use the DAVA Grip Tip picks. For a routine like this I would suggest a medium to heavy gauge pick.
Pomodoro Technique
To help you get the most out of this workout, we are going to be using the Pomodoro Technique. It's a method used for increased Focus & Productivity. 25 minutes On, 5 minutes Off. You can use a digital timer or download timer apps to your smartphone. 
Remember to relax and breath. You don't want tension in your shoulder or arm as you run through this workout. If you get tense, it will slow you down. Stay relaxed. Look into a mirror to watch your technique.
It's really important to warm-up before you play. This is a series of stretches designed to help warm up the muscles in your forearms, hands and wrists.
