Anyone doing/done this course on acoustic? How did it work out for you?
I have not done it on acoustic. A lot of it should be fine, but if there are any bends, it might be a problem. The rest of the course will be great for you.
There are no bends in this course. Hammer-ons and pull-offs may be difficult to pull off on an acoustic, just as on an electric without any overdrive.
I do the drills on both acoustic and electric. I really enjoy working this course on the acoustic.
I'll just add that in the course Griff plays through the examples at 60 bpm.
I've increased the tempo to 90-100 bpm.
There's no way I can do that on an acoustic.
Agree Paleo - zero shot I can do it at a tempo of 90 on acoustic. However, my finger strength/stamina working on all of this stuff on acoustic has improved tremendously
Goals of the course:
1) more fluidity around the fretboard
2) sound more in time
3) increase finger strength, dexterity and mobility
4) play louder and faster
I ain't suggesting you can't use an acoustic or advocating for an electric.
Choose what ever guitar you want that will allow you to get what you want from this course.
Sprinters also do weight training.
I've only pointed out a couple of "limitations" you may discover with acoustic: slurs and speed.
