Creative Fingerstyle Transformations
with Joe Robinson

In this acoustic guitar course, Joe Robinson illustrates how to transform six of the most popular song progressions from a basic form to an embellished version, and then to a version with more intricate lines and fingerstyle embellishments. Students work on major and minor blues progressions, I-V-vi-IV, I-vi-ii-V, and I-IV-I-V progressions, and a descending diatonic progression.
