Learn Guitar: Go from complete beginner to guitar fingerpicking in 30 Days

Hi – my name is Patrick and welcome to my course – intermediate acoustic guitar fingerpicking in 30 days. I have being fingerpicking guitar for 20 years and I have taught dozens of students to go from never having picked up a guitar before to being really accomplished players.  Over 7000 students have taken my beginner fingerpicking course on Udemy that has a 4.6 star rating.

This course takes it to the next level.

I suggest you watch the previews of this course – there is one for every section where I show you what you will be able to play at the end of each section if you follow the lessons through in that section.

It’s my goal to teach you the techniques you need to grow as a musician. It’s important to learn songs of the artists that you love, but it’s also important to learn the thinking and thought process behind what they are doing. This course breaks down for you how to get to the next level of being a fingerpicking musician – scales, melodies, bass lines, articulation, hammer-ons, pull-offs, muting, chord flicks, the boom-chuck pattern and more. With these in your arsenal, when we learn pieces in this course, we know the building blocks of how these songs were constructed. We know how to think about the piece as much as play it.

When you want to learn the guitar, it matters hugely which course and teacher you pick. The cost of getting this wrong isn’t that you lose out on $30-50, it is that the teaching may not stick for you and you may end up with a life where you never learn guitar, rather a life where picking up the guitar is a huge joy and pleasure for you, whether just on your own or playing with other musicians.  That’s why I give you all the materials you need to both learn and enjoy the process of developing your fingerpicking. I want you to learn skills you will use musically for years to come.

At the end of my course, students will be able to…

  • play bass patterns over the most common chords

  • play scales

  • understand how to construct melodies

  • learn the fundamentals of reading rhythm

  • weave hammer-ons and pull-offs into your melody lines

  • develop a completely independent left and right hand

  • play the boom-chuck pattern

  • play several advanced fingerpicking pieces

  • learn how to fingerpick a 12-bar blues in E

What materials will come with this course?

Each lesson has a HD video with three camera angles (full, left hand and right hand) so that you can zone in and see what each hand is doing. Each lesson also comes with a downloadable PDF and the relevant music tablature for each lesson. 

Who should take this course?

This course is ideal for students who can play a few chords and perhaps have done a small bit of fingerpicking on an acoustic guitar previously.

The course is a natural follow-on from my first course – From Zero to Guitar Fingerpicking in 30 days.

Who should not?

If you have never played a guitar or cannot play a chord on guitar, try instead my other course – – From Zero to Guitar Fingerpicking in 30 days.

What will students need before starting the course?

Students will need to have a guitar. 

If you want to give this course a try, remember that Udemy backs your purchase with a 30 day full refund option on all courses on Udemy – including this one. So you can always give it a go with absolutely no risk and get picking within the first few lessons or get your money back. This course is the best way to get musical within the first days, like I promised you above.

Enroll now to feel the joy of fingerpicking on your guitar!

Best of luck and I’ll see you in the classroom..

  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.
