This course is designed for the intermediate guitarist looking to take their understanding of the instrument to the next level.
The theories we look at show us the impact our musical choices will have on a listener. Gaining a deeper understanding of these guidelines makes creating music easier and more fun.
We first examine everything we need to know about intervals followed by a look at four note 7th chords and how to play them. We then expand on these, learning how to build extended chords and analyzing the theory of chord functions. From there we will do an in depth break down of what modes are, how modes relate to chords and how to apply the modes practically.
Each lesson is accompanied by a quiz, a list of things to practice and detailed documentation. This course encompasses a huge portion of the musical journey and will open up worlds of possibilities for you on your instrument.

Is there a certain genre that these courses work best for?
What I teach is music theory and how it applies to guitar. This is not genre specific though classical musicians look at these things slightly differently than the rest.
I don’t play guitar, will these courses help me?
The concepts I teach are universal and apply regardless of instrument. But be aware, I do spend a fair bit of time looking at how it specifically applies to guitar.
Lot’s of guitarists offer courses, why should I get yours?
There are lot’s of options out there, what makes each course unique is the person teaching them. If you enjoy learning from me on YouTube, you will enjoy these courses. Especially since the animating in my courses was outsourced and is beyond anything I could do on my own.
