I used to struggle
a lot with fingerstyle. I was 13 years old at that time. I thought it was impossible
to become a good fingerstyle player. I used to practice tons of different exercises but I had little improvement.
I asked for more exercises to my teacher.
He said " You don't need more exercises Marco. You need a system!
Work on one idea, breaking it down, change the rhythm, make it more difficult then add a melody to it. Start with something simple, then develop!
You must use the same chord progression though. REMEMBER: ONE IDEA, MULTIPLE VARIATIONS.
After almost 20 years I called that BIA System. Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Level.
One Idea, Multiple Variations!
This is what Acoustic Steps is about. This is what helped me. I am sure it will work for you to !
