Guitar Theory Lessons

Music Theory Guitar Courses

If you are searching for help in understanding how music theory works on guitar, you are in the right place. Here you will find a series of guitar courses that will help you unlock the deepest secrets of music theory... complete with a wealth of applications and examples on guitar. These courses do not just teach theory "in theory": they teach theory on the fretboard.

Each of the courses below can either stand alone or work in combination with one or more of the other courses depending on what YOU want to study:

Guitar Chords And Harmony

Complete Chord Mastery

Complete Chord Mastery is the course you want to take if:

  • Your focus is on rhythm guitar.
  • You are interested in songwriting and composition.
  • You want to learn harmony on the guitar fretboard.

It's a course for both beginner an advanced players.

What if you already knew and were able to play any chord on the guitar, in any position and could freely create your own awesome music? I’m not talking about being able to look up any chord, or sit there and waste time trying to figure it out. I mean being able to find and play any chord right away in any position as fluently as you can speak. Wouldn’t that be awesome?

If you’re like most guitar players, you might still be struggling to master guitar chords everywhere on the guitar. Hey, I’ve been there too, we all have. It seems like there is soooo much stuff to learn, and it would take a lifetime to learn it all! That’s what I used to think. It was so frustrating.

...but what I’ve found is there are people in this world who have mastered chords and it didn’t take that long to do. They aren’t any smarter or more talented than you or I.

I’ve developed a simple harmony system that I use with my own real-life students. This system takes out the mystery from the guitar so that they can learn, understand and (fluently) play all sorts of chords in a short time. You too will be able to play any chord, from simple to very advanced, all over the fretboard, in any position, inversion or voicing.

You too can learn how to understand and apply chords and harmony on guitar. You will be able to write cool chord progression - the kind that make people say "what did he just play?". You will be able to use complex chords without even thinking. You will be able to play awesome rhythm parts on your guitar in any style YOU want!

Guitar Rhythm and Groove

Ultimate Rhythm Mastery

Ultimate Rhythm Mastery is the course you want to take if:

  • Play with total confidence

  • Sound better

  • Be able to play any rhythm, song, or solo with perfect timing.

It's a course for both beginner and advanced players.

The reason why many people don’t sound the way they want to sound is their lack of mastery of rhythm and timing. In fact, I personally struggled for a long time trying to answer this one question: "Can I really learn and master rhythm, or is this something you have to be born with or have natural talent for?"

To make matters even worse, sometimes (no matter what you do), it just feels hard to learn rhythm in the traditional ways with boring rhythm exercises that nobody wants to practice when all you really want to do is be able to play any rhythm easily by feel.

When all is said and done, my guess is you really just want to sound awesome when you play, impress yourself and others, enjoy playing more, and even be able to sit in and play with other skilled musicians instead of struggling to keep up...

Well, search no more. This course helps you develop rock-solid timing that will make everything you play on guitar sound better instantly. You will finally master rhythm on guitar, become a rhythmically creative player, and have that groove that make people nod their heads and tap their foot.

Guitar Scales and Modes

Master Of The Modes: The Supreme Course To Understanding And Applying Scales And Modes On Guitar

Master of the Modes is the course you want if:

  • You want to focus on lead guitar playing.
  • You want to completely master the guitar fretboard
  • You want be able to improvise over ANY backing track or chord progression

It's a course for both beginner an advanced players.

Some guitar players seem to create unique, creative and awesome guitar solos. Somehow, being creative just comes easy for them. How do they do it? They have mastered how be creative with scales & modes on guitar... and with this I don't mean a bunch of scale patterns thrown together: I mean REAL musical insight.

Scales and modes are one of the most difficult (and controversial) topic in music theory... To make them easy-to-understand you need a simple and consistent system. A system for learning, mastering, and actually using scales and modes in real music without any limitations.

Armed with the core knowledge of Master of the Modes, you will learn and connect all there is to know about the modes. And yes, together we will use everything you are going to learn to play real music.

Learn how to finally master completely scales and modes on guitar. Learn a system that is musically useful and will help you to write, improvise, and play the music YOU want to play!

Blues Guitar scales

The Complete System Of Learning, Mastering And Applying Scales For Blues Guitar

Scales for Blues Guitar is the course you want to take if:

  • You want to focus on pentatonic Blues and Classic Rock leads

You hear great Blues players creating solos that sound amazing but have no idea how to do it by yourself? Do you struggle in playing the Blues in all keys and over all the fretboard (as opposed in just one basic position)? Are you thinking too much about "what to play next"? Wouldn't you rather than let your emotions speak through your playing?

If you have answered "yes" to any of the questions above, then you need to learn how music theory applies to Blues. And you need to understand how to use this knowledge into your guitar playing in an effective way.

Here's how to finally master all the scales for Blues guitar. Get rid of your frustration and lack of confidence once and for all. Learn how to play Blues from your heart!
