Day Tripper Acoustic Cover

March 21st, 2015

Here we have one of our YGA tutors playing through Tommy Emmanuel’s rendition of Day Tripper by The Beatles. This is a great example of the kind of things you can achieve if you focus on your acoustic guitar playing over electric. In our Acoustic courses we develop your technique and theory to be able to play through song’s similar to this where you have multiple parts going at the same time! Funnily enough, it’s not shard as it seems! :)
