Congratulations on making it through the Ariel Posen’s ‘Slide Guitar’ Master Class!
What did you find most helpful? Which techniques or concepts were most challenging for you? Hit up the Pickup Music forum to let us know and talk with other members.
If you completed the class in one or a few sittings, now is a good time to look back and pinpoint a few areas to more deeply incorporate into your practice routine. We recommend spending at least 20 minutes practicing for every 10 minute video you watch. A little bit each day is the secret to becoming a great guitarist.
Although many of the techniques seem simple, mastering them may take a while! There is so much subtetly in slide guitar, which means there’s a lot of room to develop your own unique approach and sound with slide.
Ask yourself these questions:
- How can you take chords and concepts from this Master Class and apply them to your own music?
- What techniques do you need to practice daily?
- What can you learn quickly and apply right away? What’s next?
This Master Class was thoroughly enjoyable for us to make. Ariel is a true master of his instrument and expert teacher. If you have suggestions for improving it, we’d love to hear your thoughts at [email protected]
This is just the start! Here are a few things to try out if you have completed all the lessons:
