Play What You Hear Program Review By Nicole from Malaysia



I am a self taught guitarist in Malaysia, I play guitar for my singing accompaniment. Before joining aftertabs, I play guitar by checking out the chords of my favourite songs online. I mostly play open chord root position and with a capo. Thus, it sounds very plain and boring.
If there were some special chords in that song, I will google out online and try to learn the chord shape, but as soon as I play it on that day, I will forget it the next day and need to refer back again and again.
I never learnt to maximise the use of the whole fretboard, will feel panic and lost if I encounter some special chords like C#m, Fsus4, Cadd9, Am/G. The usual chord I play is C, G, F, D, Am...and others with capo..
This course has been an eye opening process to me. It helps me understand how the fretboard works, I can recognise the notes easier now by introducing  intervals on the fretboard.
It became more exciting when Tomi taught us about CAGED system. 
With CAGED system it is so much easier to create a chord, wherever we want on the fretboard! Everything now  make sense and more systematic.
Later on,Tomi taught us to HEAR and FEEL music, chords progression and others.
In one session, Tomi also hummed a "lame" melody made by a young child and how he immediately composed an arrangement to it and make it sound so incredibly good!
Chord progression and arrangement knowledge can really make a difference to a song!
After this 15 weeks, I am amazed how much quicker and easier for me to learn one new song. And now I not playing with just following the chords and what tabs told me to do, but try to analyse more for the chord shape, and the arrangement. My playing now is not so boring now and I can even play melody line with accompaniment!
Although 15 weeks is short, I feel I have learnt a lot of things, and Tomi had implanted some special "musical seed" in everyone of us, through time it will germinate and grow bigger and stronger when we continue playing guitar, we will be reminded of his theory and become better! 
As now i am busy with other things i still keep my practise using the precious i learned from Tomi.Will join one of his future classes again...Kudos to Tomi and keep up the good work cause now you have me as your fan and friend for life : )

Fingerstyle Guitar Techniques Program - FREE LESSON

Hello all acoustic guitarists. This is a sample workout from 15 weeks and 75 workout Fingerstyle Guitar Techniques Program taught by Tomi Paldanius. 

Program structure and goal

First half of the program will develop your abilities for stronger attack, wider dynamic range, and better accuracy. These exercise are important if you want to get your unsecure picking to the high level.  Fingerstyle guitar is mainly fingerpicking and it is important to build the foundation strong for many fingering combinations both right and left hand. Program will cover horizontal and vertical scales, chords, spiders, hammer ons and pull offs, arpeggios and many more important aspects of fingerstyle guitar. We do some special techniques also like Slap Thumb.

At the second half of the program you will learn more how to put the important skills you learned earlier to the practical context. How to play musical lines and phrases from songs with confidence and musical way. Goal is to sound like the world's top players do with great attack and tone you learned earlier.

Please check the first introduction video and workout below and hope to see you at the next Fingerstyle Guitar Techniques Program. You can join the program by clicking here!

Fingerstyle Guitar Techniques Program - Workout 01

Each workout article has 2 videos. Later during the program there will be also notation charts. First video is a preparation/introduction video and second video is the actual workout. You can practice with the rhythm track only if you have a possiblity to balance your audio to only left or right channel. You can also workout with metronome or drum machine. Please feel free anytime to send Tomi a video of your playing/progress for personal guidance. 

At the beginning it is important to build your attack to the instrument with basic alternating picking. More wider is the dynamic range, more musical your playing will sound. We also go for the accuracy, cleaner picking and more careful listening. These exercises are extremely important even they might sounds very simple. 

The workout video below is little longer than 15 minutes but try to keep going until the finish.
