Beginner Lessons

Slightly more advanced fingerings, rhythms are still easy, and no advanced techniques are evident. Simple chords appear. Proper playing by the student should show fluency, but at this level, instructor phrasings such as vibrato are not integral to the lesson.

  • John Frusciante Style Lesson

    by Gabriel Leopardi

    I think that he chooses the best notes at every moment. He has not a incredible technique but he creates beautiful melodies in every solo, and for me, this is the most important thing. I don't care if you play millions of notes in a second or one note, I just want to hear beautiful music.

  • Slow Melody Lesson

    by David Wallimann

    Here is a melodic piece. It's important not to get carried away with technique and forget that music is about conveying a message. Melody is the main focus here. I tried to create a lead that would flow easily to the listener's ear. When trying to build something melodic, a good idea is to sing a melody on top of the chord progression you're working on and reproduce it on the instrument. That's usually how you can come up with new ideas.
