Roberto Dalla Vechia Foundry course, Flat Out Flatpicking will show you the essential skills, techniques, and creative approaches you’ll need to become an accomplished flatpicker.

Tone, timing, taste, speed, rhythm chops, ear are all essential skills that guitar players from beginners to professionals need to address on a regular basis. These are the skills that we admire so much in our guitar heroes.

We will spend eight weeks together learning flatpicking songs and practicing solid acoustic guitar fundamentals, each week focusing on a different one. Each skill could easily be an eight week course by itself, but here we will focus only on those aspects that are crucial to establish a foundation to build upon.

I'm not a big fan of exercises and prefer to have students learn how to play songs, which songs focus on the particular skills and techniques that the student needs to study and develop. And this is exactly what well do!

You'll be learning a new song in every section of the course applying the ideas and tips that we'€™ll focus on in that section. For example, in the fourth section, we'€™ll focus on speed: I will first demonstrate ways to improve speed and accuracy in your playing, and then show you how to play Typewriter Guitar, a simple song that works great as a study to improve hand synchronization and speed. Throughout the entire course, we'€™ll work together in this way to build up your skills and take your guitar playing to the next level.
