ACOUSTIC GUITAR SYSTEM is a guitar course for beginners who keep asking the same questions:

"How can I go from playing simple basic chords to beautiful sounding melodies in a few weeks."

"what about putting music theory into practice so that I can finally come up with my musical ideas."

Acoustic Guitar System is an online course that will show you how to play guitar in the most creative, musical, and practical way.

In this guitar course, I am going to show you how to transform your guitar playing and become a creative guitar player.

We will cover things such as:

"Fingerstyle technique and how to pluck the strings to achieve the perfect tone, dynamics, and control. We will play basic melodies, chords, arpeggios, and musical ideas that will shape your fingerpicking technique."

"Practical music theory and how to put into practice basic concepts such as intervals, major and minor chords, extended chords, major and minor scales, and more."

"Beautiful chords on the guitar and how to use fingerstyle guitar to spice things up and create chord progressions that are simple yet interesting. We will cover major and minor chords as well as major 7th, minor 7th and dominant 7th chords as well as add9 and more."

Scales and melodies on guitar and how to write a beautiful melody by learning the notes of the scale and then wisely write combine chords and single notes.

Basic percussive technique on the acoustic guitar such as thumb slap and thumb slap and strum.

This guitar course is perfect for any guitar player who wants to learn more about playing guitar and truly understand how to put together chords and melody.

Three things are stopping you from becoming the guitar player you want.

Number 1: You are stuck in a guitar rot. It could be because you play the same chords and songs or because you don't know how to progress. Reaching a plateau is one of the main reasons why guitar players stop playing guitar.

Number 2: You are practicing the wrong things. When I talk to beginners, I hear this a lot, "I am playing Pentatonic scales because someone told me this is the best way to start." There isn't such a thing as the best way. There is your way and what you need. Don't waste time practicing guitar styles that don't represent you. You want to be a blues player, learn blues. A classical player, learn classical guitar.

Number 3: You try to play too many things. Places like YouTube drive you crazy, and you always end up clicking on a ton of guitar lessons instead of practicing. Too many choices can slow you down big time.

The good news is, it is easy to get your motivation back if you follow a structured program.

If you want to learn how to play basic chords, extended chords, and you want to finally learn how to play simple scales and melodies using fingerstyle guitar, you should check this course. We will also learn practical music theory, simple percussive technique, and more.

Each guitar lesson comes with a dedicated Pdf that you can download and print.


As a guitar teacher, I do my best to make things as simple as possible. This course doesn't show you how to hold the guitar or how to play your very first chords.

However, just because it doesn't show you that it doesn't mean that it is not for beginners.

There are a lot of different levels within the beginner's phase. Some beginners can pick up things much faster than others so they could, for example, finish this course quickly.

Some beginners learn slowly, and they need a more step-by-step and detailed program.

I did my best to keep things very simple. However, if you never played guitar before, THIS COURSE IS NOT FOR YOU.

It's impossible to create a beginner course that fits everyone. I am aware of that!

I would consider this course to be great for fingerstyle beginners. It's for students that already played guitar for a while and know the basic chords and simple strumming who want to learn more about fingerstyle, practical music theory, scales, and chords.

My goal is to teach you how to play guitar creatively. I did my best to organize the guitar lessons step by step, but I am always open to feedback so, please, if you have questions, don't hesitate to get in touch with new ideas or suggestions.

Enough talking!

Grab your guitar, and let's get started.
