Welcome to Guitar Lessons for the Curious Guitarist! This is a complete guitar lessons course for all guitar students - beginner to advanced. These guitar lessons start at the beginning, assuming that you don't know how to play at all. Imagine yourself as a confident & highly skilled guitarist because you invested in yourself and went through this course.
Any kind of six-string guitar will work well for this course - electric guitar, acoustic guitar, or classical guitar. This course is all about guitar playing & guitar theory.
This course is arranged in 9 sections with guitar lessons that each build on the previous lesson. The sections are: GUITAR BASICS, BEGINNER LEVEL, NOVICE LEVEL, INTERMEDIATE LEVEL, ADVANCED LEVEL, EXPERT LEVEL, WORLD CLASS LEVEL, JAM ALONG, and BONUS LESSONS.
Throughout this course, we will focus heavily on these guitar fundamentals:
⦁ Chords - Including open & barre chords in multiple positions, relative (scale chords), extended, altered, construction, naming, and more.
⦁ Rhythm - Including reading, writing, counting, strumming, picking, tapping, timing, and all things rhythm guitar.
⦁ Arpeggios - From basic major & minor to extended & altered, some include multiple redundant positions for better guitar mastery, you will arpeggiate every chord. Arpeggios are for guitar soloing.
⦁ Scales & Modes - Including major & minor pentatonics, major & minor scales, all 7 relative modes, full-fretboard soloing, and other exotic scales. Scales & modes are for guitar soloing.
⦁ Other - Including techniques like hammer-ons, pulloffs, slides, bends, fret-tapping, natural & artificial harmonics, reading standard music notation, blues guitar, dyads, ear training, and more!
The JAM ALONG section includes 10 videos, each with a PDF, of live-recorded jam along guitar loops for you to use while you practice soloing. The keys and scales are clearly marked & charted out on the whiteboard (and the PDF attachments) so you'll know exactly what to play!
Every lesson video has a PDF attachment. These PDFs are the tabs, chords, rhythms, songs, and guitar lessons.
