Who is it for?
Suitable for any acoustic worship guitarist who wants to learn more chords, strumming patterns and finger style techniques.
Also acoustic guitarists beyond the beginner stage but perhaps not yet ready for the Intermediate DVDs. Also great for guitarists who want to learn some neat tricks and techniques from a variety of well known worship songs that you can then incorporate into your playing. The Song Learner Series sits between Beginners and Intermediate in terms of ability and is taught on acoustic guitar.
Each lesson is so much more than a quick run through of how to play the song. As experienced educators, we at Musicademy realise that many students need to have the information broken down, repeated slowly and then consolidated in the context of a song. The DVDs demo every song section and play it through a few times before each element is bolted together step-by-step. Using this method helps you get each sequence into muscle memory as quickly as possible.
A free downloadable resource sheet is available in the members area for each song. These contain chord charts, chord shapes and strumming patterns.
What is the difference between Musicademy's three Intermediate Guitar DVDs?
Here is a detailed article describing the differences between the three Intermediate Worship Guitar DVDs.
What else is available to help me practice?
We have a DVD called Worship Backing Band - Musicians Practice Tracks which contains 54 worship songs that you can play along with. Practice is a lot more fun with other people! You can select to take the vocals out of the mix so you are effectively the singer with a pro band. Its like high quality worship karaoke. The DVD shows on-screen words and chords so if you play an instrument you can also play along as you sing.
Will the DVDs work on my DVD player?
The DVDs are NTSC and coded Region 0 which means they will play anywhere in the world.
Can I get a refund if I don't like the DVDs?
Yes, you are also covered by our 100% customer satisfaction guarantee if having received the DVDs you do not feel they are right for you.
