Weekly Workout

The Weekly Workout is a series of monthly exercises made up of interesting technical workouts that will get your fretting- and picking-hand fingers working in different ways, and offer musical studies that will help you visualize and explore the fingerboard.

Collections of Weekly Workouts organized by topic and technique are available to download in the Acoustic Guitar store for a year's worth of guitar lesson workouts that promise to engage your fingers as well as your mind.

In every lesson available here, you’ll get a different guitar exercise to work on for each week of the month, as well as a few extra variations and extended practice ideas.
