The secret to Manuel’s speed
Learning how to play guitar at a fast speed doesn’t happen overnight. In this class, Manuel sets you up with the mindset that will enable you to play guitar faster.
Here’s how it works: every phrase, motif, run, or lick requires a different approach to mastery or articulation. By carefully examining the most efficient way to pick a phrase and what feels most comfortable to you, you’ll be able to play effortlessly fast.
Percussive strumming is a key aspect of Manuel’s sound and was the most-requested topic for this Master Class. Manuel breaks down this technique so you can learn it and adapt it to your own playing.
