Blackbird is one of the most memorable fingerpicking songs ever! Here Dan Thorpe breaks the song up into smaller parts and shows you all the parts of this classic.

No fingerstyle course would be complete without some Ed Sheeran on it. Here we have Ed Sheeran`s most stunning guitar work to date.

  • The Calling – Wherever You Will Go

A simple yet stunning song that pretty much everyone knows.

One of the massive hits from the early noughties, this song is one many forget the title to.

As soon as they hear the opening fingerpicked notes, it all comes back. To me that`s the sign of a great song, play the first few notes and everyone knows it!

Learn this simple classic and get crooning!

  • Simon and Garfunkel – Scarborough Fair

Scarborough Fair was a huge hit for these two folk pop legends and one that will go down in history as an important part of one of music most memorable gigs – the New York Central Park gig.

That night they played this amazing song and blew the whole city away.

Blow your audience away with your rendition of this distinctive and powerful classic.

  • Tracy Chapman – Fast Car

Fast Car is a song close to my heart and I remember hearing it as a kid and really loving it back then.

Since teaching guitar, `Fast Car` has made its way to the top of my list as the first fingerpicking song that I teach most of my private students – if they like it of course!

  • Glen Hansard & Markéta Irglová – Falling Slowly (from the huge film `Once`)

The 2008 Academy Award winning song from the massive independent film `Once`.

This song, the winner for best original song category is so sweet and so pretty it will melt any of the days frustrations away.

It`s songs like this that make getting home from work and picking up the guitar so satisfying.

It is so powerful can and often does bring a lump in the throat of people when they play and listen to it.

  • Ferdinado Carulli – Andantino

This is a truly beautiful piece that you might not know the name of, but you will be sure to recognise. Even if you have somehow never heard it before, you instantly fall in love with it`s melancholic beauty.

It`s one of my favourite classical pieces to teach and listen to. For all its simplicity, the music is absolutely stunning.

It`s also a very impressive piece has been described as “the sound of a waterfall”.

  • Bill Withers – Ain`t No Sunshine

Everyone knows this. A rather simple but highly powerful song that you can learn in just minutes.

If you`re a singer, that`s a bonus but if not you have a cool intrumental that will be easy to learn.

Some of the chords you don`t even need to fret the strings for!

  1. Luis Brito

    I can definitely see this course helping breaking through that initial barrier when it comes to learning a programming language. I’m positive I’ll finish it and hopefully master python by then.

  2. Abdallah Galal Abouhussein

    I would like to share my personnel experience, i`m very pleased and happy for taking this impressive course because Dr. Angela always makes it simple and easy to understand and always makes a precaution section before or after any bug that may appear to some students and also write or record the solution for us, and each word she said is very real and easy to understand.
    Thanks Dr. Angela

  3. Jiaqing Fan

    Very good course. Dr Angela explains things very clearly. The exercises are interactive and helpful.

    Angela’s voice is like ASMR in most lessons. So you won’t lose focus?

  4. Jaime Sánchez Blanco

    Every concept is very well explained so you can assimilate it, and the teacher insists in practicing daily to get the habit of programming. It really motivates to keep studying and practicing every day.

  5. Bradley Carouthers

    3 days in and I’ve already learned more than other training programs where I’ve put months in. Her teaching style is both efficient and effective.

    Edit: Now on day 29 and the course has held up my expectations and hopes. The rise in complexity is not too sharp, and every day feels like an accomplishment. Angela takes her time to explain things without rushing, yet is able to pack tons of information in nuggets of time.

    Still recommend supplemental exposure for a more wholesome grasp. Though, this should be quite enough

  6. Tommy Prévost

    Very good course.

    PROs: lots of coding exercises, clear explanations, great examples, adapted to 2021’s reality.

    CONs: past the first 30 lessons, many similar coding hands-on.

  7. Quang Tu

    I love all the lectures and challenges of this course. I finally find myself in love with coding. This is definitely a fun course. Thank you Angela for this great course.

  8. Fortunate Eze

    This course is nothing short of AMAZING. The level of love and sincere desire to see students succeed present in this course is a rare sight. This course is fun, it’s challenging, it’s suspense-filled, it makes you feel good about yourself solving those challenges. You don’t take this course and memorise codes, you take it and you know what you’re doing because you literally do it yourself.

    It couldn’t possibly be any more obvious that Angela brought out her whole heart, time, energy and resources to give us a course that if priced based on it’s value, many of us certainly can’t afford. I mean, she kept advising and encouraging us to keep going, because she knows the road could get bumpy, she made a few jokes and used funny animations so we smile along the way keeping it fun. Why some people can’t see this and would rather subscribe to trying to bend courses to fit their own personal preferences is beyond me, but I guess people will always be people.

    Dear Angela, I cannot speak for everyone but I certainly can speak for myself and I’m saying thank you. The efforts you put into making this course outstanding didn’t go unnoticed.

    Let as many of us as appreciate your efforts make you happy and energize you to create more life changing courses for us.


  9. Chendaniel

    Just the course fits me. Learn by doing, it is easy to start and just follow the flow and at day 15 you realized how to program in Python. Then the magic happen. I am on day 27 and I am looking forward to start a new section everyday.

  10. Caspar Cheng

    Angela is my favourite teacher on Udemy, her courses always come with clear and concise demonstration, make it really easy to understand the content. Meanwhile, she also provide a lot of tips to encourage us moving further on the way of coding. I’m definitely a super fan of her. I had finished her web development boot camp and now I’m learning Python 100 days of code. This course is amazing as she provided one particular project for each day’s learning, which is, really useful and handy. Also, those projects are really interesting and won’t let me feel disappointed about myself. Although some of them are a little bit difficult, they’re still resolvable after some struggling and searching online. I’ll recommend this course for those who really want to learn Python well and write real python projects from scratch!

  11. Jonas Weber

    The course was awesome in the first half! Really helped me to get back to programming and learning new techniques. Also the course got way to much focused on web development in the second half, which I’m not really interested in and is redundand to your dedicated web development course. The lack of videos in the last quarter was rather sad. I really would’ve liked some video explanations for pandas and matplotlib. The challenges and capstone projects were great and challenging!
    All in all I can really recommend this course for beginners and those who want to learn python and/or get back to programming!

  12. Rohit Prasad

    Angela is the best teacher I have ever experienced. The way she explains all the topics and makes use of it in the projects is commendable. Thank you so much Angela for this course.
