Time to get creative

Welcome to our Acoustic Beginners Level 2 course! This course picks up where the level 1 course left off, and starts to focus on injecting more creativity into your playing, and even start writing your own songs! We assume you've got a good grasp on the basics from the previous course, and start building on those foundations. We introduce a new type of chord that can really help with songwriting, and add a new dimension to your playing with fingerstyle Travis Picking.

I'll show you a technique that will add a whole new dimension to your guitar playing using chords you've already learnt!
