Trevor Gordon Hall introduces us to "Fingerstyle Fretting Hand Mastery!"

We continue building on our last lesson but this time incorporating two fingers to stretch to different parts of the fretboard using a 6ths finger pattern.
In this next lesson, we begin diving into horizontal stretches on the fretboard.
Trevor helps us tackle natural harmonics which is a very common technique in the world of fingerstyle playing.
Let's build on our previous lesson as Trevor gives us some more tips for natural harmonics as well as breaking down how we jump between frets as we incorporate harmonics.
Let's keep building our harmonic knowledge as we learn how to hold fretted notes as well as reach for other harmonics.

Let's keep adding to our musical toolbox as we work through this pull-off exercise.
In this lesson, Trevor walks us through how to achieve hammer-ons and pull-offs while a bass note is fretted.
Slides are another technique that comes up in finger styles. In this lesson, Trevor shows us how to use slides as a way to move up and down the fretboard.

We dive into the vibrato style in this lesson which will bring some expressive aspects to our playing.
Now that we have the vibrato style under our fingers, let's focus on a specific style within this technique, the B.B. King style!
For this vibrato lesson, we use the guitar neck as a vibrato tool for entire chords.
For this lesson, we expand our expressive sliding skills by playing multiple notes at a time!
