Video Courses by Rik Roberts
Here are my current video courses covering a variety of topics. All courses are on one single webpage, divided into sections, each with a video and helpful accompanying text. Each course represents weeks or months of learning and the videos are designed to be paused as you work on various points.
A seven part video course
Learn to fingerpick from scratch with ease. We will learn correct technique and develop it together with a variety of patterns that you can apply to songs. By the end of the course you will be able to mix patterns up and free-style your picking!
Simply purchase a ticket below, which contains a link to the course page along with the password to gain access to the page at anytime you wish.
Right Hand Basics
A four part video course
We will learn a good, solid right hand position and apply it to:
- basic strumming with right hand fingers and thumb
- thumb then strum technique
- alternating thumb then strum technique
These are the basic acoustic fingerstyle guitar staples that take you beyond simple plectrum strumming. If you are a dinner party/camp fire strummer who wants to move on, then this course was made for you!
Start Travis Picking
A Five Part Video Course
An introduction to this popular picking style. We will learn two famous Travis patterns, mixing fingers with an alternating bass line played with the thumb. Attention is given to developing a solid technique that enables excellent tone, rhythm and ease of play. Some people play for years with only one Travis pattern, so these two patterns will go a long way and spice up your playing!
