THE AIMS OF THIS COURSE
The aim of the “Advancing Guitar” course is to take acoustic guitarists to the next level of understanding. To do this, the course highlights areas that are often overlooked by other online guitar lessons.
CONTENT WITHIN THE COURSE
In the second lesson of the course you take a melody and play it in several major keys. By doing this, players begin to understand the underlying template to scale patterns that are used within songs.
In lesson five, simple open string chords are taken up the neck. Using already known chords in different neck positions is a great way of creating new sounds. It also opens up the possibility of using other chord forms not covered in this course.
