Public Space: All About Arpeggios With Evan Taucher!
Improve your Arpeggios in Two Weeks with Evan Taucher!
Arpeggios are a fundamental part of guitar technique, but are you practicing them in a way where you will improve over time? Oftentimes we find ourselves stuck in the same routine with old habits that leave our arpeggios sounding imprecise and strained. Join this intensive to break out of the box and work on our arpeggios in a precise way that will challenge your mind, and then your fingers.
- Course Period: October 17th - 28th

My understanding is that there is no instructor feedback in the the public section - otherwise, it would simply be another (possibly large) participant section, and the idea is to limit participation to something the instructor can reasonably handle. Of course, ToneBase members in the the public section are free to comment on one another’s contributions, just as in the various challenges that have been run.
