* Jam with me - you will find active collabs here.

* Post a topic on this board, guitar related or not - doesn't matter! You will find that chatting with instructors boosts your motivation to practice.

* You haven't missed my latest video lessons, have you?

Hello guys! I will divide this section in two topics. The first part we will work on technique exercises for speed but before that we will do some warming up exercises. Here you can download the warming up exercises and the Speed exercises:

WARMING UP

SPEED EXERCISES


Then I will talk a bit about major and minor triads and how to use them to improvise following the chords.

This is the backing that we will use:



The chord progression is: G - D - C and there is a variation in the verse: G - D - Am

FRI AUGUST 30th - VCHAT LESSON NOTES

Hello guys! In this session we will talk about Composition but in a different way compared to traditional books. We will analyze around 3 songs of a band to understand the concepts that they use to create their music and then we will try to create an idea based on this concepts. My idea is to show you how I create my "in the style of..." lessons and how I get influence and inspiration from the bands that I like.

The topics that we will have in mind to understand their music are:

- Song Structure
- Chord Progressions
- Scales used for Vocal Melodies
- Scales used for solos
- Arrangements


The first band that we will cover is Foo Fighters. The songs that we will have in mind are "Everlong", "Hero", "Wheels" and "Walk".

I won't be teaching how to play the songs, there are lots of tabs out there, I will help you to understand how these ones are composed.
