Del & Jim Fingerpicking Classes Online

Posted on: July 4th, 2021 by dville

Level 1 of the popular Del Rey & Jim D’Ville Finger-picking Course is now available online! For a mere $50 you’ll get four, one-hour lessons plus a number of weekly practice videos. You’ll learn to fingerpick country blues, folk, and ragtime tunes including Dance Hall Shuffle, Spoonful, Hop High Ladies, and others. Click HERE to start your finger-picking journey. Here’s what students have to say about the classes:

The classes were challenging, fun, and I came away with all sorts of new tricks! I highly recommend starting with Level 1 even if you have some experience fingerpicking – this class will definitely improve your technique.

Thank you Jim and Del for the most informative, challenging, and fun finger-picking lessons on our planet.

I want to let you know how much I appreciated your work on the finger-style workshop. I thought the instructional styles of you and Del Rey complemented each other, and your time management kept us focused so we could maximize our time together. The video clips you and Del Rey created not only served as a reminder of the week’s class but were useful for practicing the concepts presented in the class. I also appreciated your music theory insights which addressed the “why” and “how” of music.

Just wanted to say thanks for helping me on my finger-picking journey!! Things have become so much easier after Level 1 and getting down the basic rhythm and the thumb action. It’s so much fun to add the little things that make this music so interesting and fun to play. Wonderful to have a better understanding of the basics and now getting the muscle memory down.
