Lessons & Guitar-Tech
Check out our basic lessons like Minor Blues, All of me, Artillerie Lourde, September Song and the "gypsy guitar basic" technique lesson. Just go to the lesson library and choose the "Basic" filter. Have a look at our intermediate lessons as well. You don't have to play the full songs. Every lesson contains licks & arpeggios everyone can play. Advanced lessons are mostly played at a faster tempo but you can play it at a lower speed as well. Just have a look at some lessons and get inspired.
The academy is mainly structured in songs but you will find different "technique" exercises as well. Just set your lesson filter to " Extra". There is a "Basic Gypsy Guitar" lesson available and Joscho will explain different techniques in detail. Please also check out the “Technique Class” by our guest teacher Mr. Sven Jungbeck.
I mostly play handcrafted guitars by Jürgen Volkert - Have a look, they are beautiful: www.volkert-guitars.de. Furthermore i use AER Amps, D´Addario Strings (Gypsy Swing 0.11), Wegen Pick (Big City Pick 1,8mm), Audio Technica AT831b Mic as a pickup mic, Headway eb2 preamp and a Tondexter for my pickup signal.
Everyone is different, so it always depends on your personal motivation and guitaristic experience. Some people learn a complete tune in some hours/days, some need more time. In addition to that, some students only learn parts of a specific tune while others are mostly interested in playing the rhythm guitar. With our academy we offer lessons everyone can participate in to support your guitar playing and personal progress.
