Fingerstyle Guitar

Fingerstyle is a fantastic guitar technique, because it allows you to pick up a guitar and play full-fledged music, all by yourself, with a melody, accompaniment chords and a bass line, all together! Moreover, withfingerstyle you can play all kinds of music, from classical to hard rock and everything in between. This makes fingerstyle a perfect basis to learn other guitar styles as well.

With this DVD a beginning guitarist (or begining fingerpicker) will have enough study material for a year or longer. It is not required to have any prior experience with guitar playing, and you need no knowledge of music. However, by the time you can play everything on this DVD, you may consider yourself one of the better guitarists in town!

A unique approach

Eltjo has never had a single guitar lesson in his entire life and this makes his instructional DVD very special: fast, fun, motivating, and without the use of complicated musical scores or dull music theory. You will start playing music right from the beginning! Moreover, Eltjo is a gifted speaker and a very good instructor, and in seven highly structured lessons he will quickly introduce you to the wonderful world of fingerstyle guitar.

Difficult? Maybe not so difficult as you would think, with Eltjo's ultra-clear step-by-step method. This is not one of those DVDs where you have to figure it all out yourself. Our customers tell us that watching this DVD is similar to having private lessons. Every time you will get extensive instructions about the excercises you have to do before you can move on to the next section. Everything is very clear, also thanks to the unique camera angles that are used and which show Eltjo's hands just like your own hands. Best of all: in the unlikely case there is something you don't understand, you will not be alone. You can ask all your questions on the Internet Forum that has been made especially for everybody who owns this DVD.

Both for beginners as well as advanced players

The guitar lessons on this DVD are made for those who have never touched a guitar in their lives, but also for more advanced players who want to learn fingerstyle guitar. And thanks to the mini-performances with jaw-dropping techniques, Eltjo's encouraging and highly motivating attitude and a wealth of addional information (e.g., about how to play by ear and how to check and set up your guitar), this DVD even has value for advanced fingerstyle players.

A complete course for the price of one single guitar lesson!

We offer this great DVD, packed with almost two hours of lessons, for price of US$ 19.95 - which is probably less than what you would pay for just one single guitar lesson! But with this DVD you will not only learn to play guitar - you will also learn how stay motivated and how to continue learning by yourself when you're done with this DVD. In Eltjo's own words: "If you always remain dependent on others to learn new things, you will never become a real guitarist!"
