Today's post is about solo acoustic guitarist! While many music we listen to these days seems to have lost the connection with the acoustic guitar, they are actually still a uber cool instrument! We are lucky to be able to present 2 of our students performing solo on the acoustic guitar. They have a very style and presentation but are both able to achieved the same outcome! In short, acoustic guitarist has and will still rule the world! Let me show you how!
Kyran is a big fan of Tommy Emmanuel and has been spending his 2 years learning how to nail those fingerstyle songs with me. I've to say it has been great fun and honor to guide him! Fingerstyle guitar is similiar to classical guitar but with a twist! It combines the melody, the chords, the bass lines and percussion all in one player. With a little effort, fingerstyle guitar can easily be the best style to play on the acoustic guitar! Sounds hard to accomplish? Well if this NUS business student can manage between his studies, social life, rugby and guitar playing, then you don't have an excuse. Right?
When Joshua first came to us, he was walking behind his dad and was a quiet young man. However, his first lesson proved us all wrong when he walked in with a guitar that his father played during his younger days and told us he wanted to make his father proud. That motivated us in return to help him in whatever we can to achieve his goal! Today, Joshua is a very motivated musician and has taken lots initiative to bring his music making to a higher level. Apart from scoring Distinction for his electric guitar grading exam, he has also start a youtube channel showcasing all his orignals! Don't miss this up and coming Singapore's Ed Sheeran! I suggest you subscribing to his channel to show some support!
