Most beginners think that you need to know thousands of chords to play thousands of songs. NOT SO! You really only need to know a handful of chords and a few strumming patterns to play thousands of rock, folks, blues and pop songs.

The reason guitar is the most popular instrument on the planet is because it's the quickest and easiest instrument to learn how to play. You do NOT need to read music. You do NOT need to learn music theory. You do NOT need to struggle through exercises, or practice scales, or learn how to play Mary Had A Little Lamb.

Fact is that thousands of popular songs can be played with 8 simple chords or less. Learn just the A chord, D chord and E chord and you'll be able to play hundreds of blues, folk, pop and rock songs. Why is this so? Because rock, pop, folk and blues songwriters all use the same handful of chords - it's their melodies and arrangements that make their songs distinctive, NOT the chords they are using in the song.

So, if you learn that handful of chords, and learn those few strumming patterns, along with the basics of holding and tuning a guitar, then you too will be able to play thousands of songs. And that's the simple truth.

World renowned guitar educator Ravi has taught thousands of people to play their favorite songs on guitar with his breakthrough 21-day course. The "trick" behind this course is really no trick at all; over the 21 days you'll learn how to hold and tune the guitar, how to play eight simple chords, how to strum, and how to keep a beat.

No gimmicks. No "magic" formula. No nonsense.

You will need to set 20 minutes a day aside for your practice sessions. No more and no less. And you are asked to do this for 21 days straight. Yes, you can skip a day or two but the daily repetition and practice regiment is the key to your success.

Ravi has also included additional lessons for you to work with beyond the 21 days. You'll learn more open position chords, the moveable barre chord system (worth the price of admission alone!), how to read chord charts, and how to easily and quickly learn songs from sheet music, song books and lyric sheets that you download from the internet.

Ravi will step you through the course and each of your practice sessions on the video lessons. Follow the course for those 21 days and beyond and we guarantee that you'll be prepared to start playing and building your own repertoire of favorite songs to accompany yourself or play in a band setting.

No, you will not be an Eric Clapton in 21 days and we wouldn't suggest you book your first gig on the 22nd day BUT you will be a guitar player and you will be well equipped to learn ALL of your favorite songs.

If you've always wanted to learn to play guitar so that you can strum along and sing your favorite songs, Learn Guitar in 21 Days is likely the answer you've been seeking. Grab your guitar, boot up Ravi's first lesson and let's start making music right away!

NOTE! We get asked all the time why a guitar educational company with so many advanced courses would offer such a simple solution to learning guitar without having to learn how to read music, learn theory or work through a more "formal" learning methodology. The answer is really simple; you never stop learning music but you do have to start. If your introduction to music is boring, tedious and generally a struggle, you'll likely pack the guitar up in its case and stick it in the closet. If it's fun, engaging and you can prove to yourself that you can really do it, then you'll spend a lifetime enjoying and learning guitar. Hopefully, TrueFire and our massive library of instruction will enhance that lifetime of enjoyment.

- How would it feel like - to know that you can FLUENTLY play all the songs that you were struggling with for a long time?

- To know that you can execute (without even paying attention to it) any chord transition that you used to struggle with?

Sounds good, right?

Welcome! This is what you've been looking for. By the end of this course - you will be able to easily execute the chord changes between all the basic chords - in a smooth and lightning-fast way. Without even looking. The result: You will be playing songs effortlessly.

"Playing fast at campfires was stressful for me. That changed now. The exact course I was missing for years! Even fingerpicking was easier than strumming chords."  Markus Hees (Google Translate from German)

★★★★★
"The instructions are clear and informative and presented in an entertaining way. There are lots of examples of songs that you can play." Ivan Carter

★★★★★

"Very simple and straightforward concepts that just work! Changing chord never felt so easy. Great bonus pdf’s as well." Barak Yaari

★★★★★

"When I first saw this course I really hoped that it would be the information that I needed to make me sit down and work on my chord changes and strumming. I am delighted to say that it really is!! I am already seeing a big difference in my playing. If you are unhappy with the speed and accuracy of your chord changes, your guitar and your audience will love you!" Amanda Yates

★★★★★

"All of a sudden, my fingers know where to go and hey presto I can finger the chord and make chord transitions so much easier." Malcolm Casswell

★★★★★

This mini-course will teach you exactly how to overcome (and speed through!) the obstacle of changing chords fast - which is the #1 obstacle that is causing 90% of the beginner guitarists to quit within a few weeks/months.​ 

By enrolling and putting in the little work that you'll learn about - I can assure you that you WON'T be one of the quitters.

Changing chords is not gonna be a challenge for you anymore - and instead you are going to focus simply on playing the songs fluently, and even singing along if you wish.

You will achieve that through practicing (for a couple of minutes a day) a small bunch of simple, fun, yet extremely powerful exercises - which will help you DRILL all the chord changes deep into your muscle memory.

You are going to feel the results today, and you are going to be able to cut through months of slow improvement in just days-couple of weeks, and skip to the fun parts of playing the guitar.

By doing the exercises - you will be able to take your guitar playing from the initial, hard stage, where it feels like constant "hard work" - where each chord change is a hassle - and you have to look down and slowly move your fingers one by one...

Into the stage where it's just "pure, expressive fun", and you can simply play all of your favorite songs without even thinking about it, without any efforts, and without these "flow-killing" stops between the chords.

Guitar is simple - by knowing these basic chords and how to switch between them at ease + a couple of strumming patterns (which I will teach you in the course as well) = you will be able to play literally tens of thousands of songs.

So join me inside and start having FUN with your favorite songs, instead of struggling with changing chords.

In this course, we will dive from the start and learn brand new SCALES, which will cover the entire fret board of the guitar, so if you are a beginner, I advise you to take it slowly and maybe take my previous 2 courses first. Then we will learn new rhythm that will open the door to more complex music like Swan Lake by Tchaikovsky

Arpeggios takes a whole section here, as it is a crucial building block in your advancement as a guitarist. If you have been watching YouTube videos, I am sure you came across it but you don't know what it is. Here I will answer this question and many more about it.

Just like an athlete who is preparing for a marathon, you need to have the proper training if you want to become a classical guitarist. That's why I included the section Building Technique so you feel comfortable and confident when we start playing the final pieces "Greensleeves", "Gigue", and "Andante Op.31" by Sor. These are all Grade 1 from London College of Music curriculum. 

Even if you are not intending to take the exam, these masterpieces will provide a solid foundation of musical education for any classical guitar student. There is a wide content of musical repertoire here, all designed to take your guitar playing to a higher level than you are now.

The 2nd part of this serious which picks up where we left off. It starts with learning notes on the 5th & 6th strings, then introduce the accidentals to fill in the spaces on the frets we left it. 

Scales is one of the major issues we going to discuss by playing 2 major scales and 1 minor scale, and explain why they are important for your development as classical guitarist. We gonna take a look at 5 basic chord shapes that will help your left hand adapt and stretch your fingers, so the pieces we will play later will not be that hard on the left hand. 

Then we going to switch our focus to the right hand, by learning the chord technique and how to play 2 or more notes at the same time. This section will be filled with exercises to make sure that you get the technique right, as this what differs the classical guitarist from other type of guitar playing like electric and folk.

After that we will be playing 3 of the most famous studies by famous classical guitar composers such as F. Carulli, Mateo Carcassi, and Mauro Giuliani that will take your playing to a whole new level. 

Finally at the end we will take a look at one of the most important technique on guitar which is Arpeggio, and play one of the most famous Flamenco pieces of all time: The Malaguena. 

So, here is your chance to really play classical guitar. All the lessons are broken down in easy to follow steps. I will not leave a single note, or technique not fully explained. 

If you've playing guitar for months or even years and struggling to take your playing to the next level, this course is definitely for you. Reading standard music notation is a must for this course, so If you can't read it why don't you check out my first course in this serious then come back and continue with this one.

Playing the classical guitar is such a rewarding and enjoyable experience, and for many of us, practicing is a crucial part of the our daily routine. Practicing classical guitar each day can help your brain feel settled, and it is a powerful tool for self-expression. That being said, even if you have a guitar, you still need music to play, and that's where this course comes in.

When you learn a new piece on the guitar, it's like having a new insight that changes the way you feel about things and see things. It's like going around a corner, and seeing a new and surprising view. You'll be able to share this with others, as your able to play for your friends, family, and colleagues.

As our experience grows, so does our inner life, and music is a great way to express that. The reason that each of these pieces of music has endured for so long is that each one speaks the need, or you could even say compulsion, to express yourself with music.

If you've ever thought "I play that piece pretty well, but that one part always gives me trouble," or "I wonder how I can use my hands so I have more flexibility and don't have discomfort" or "I would like to play well enough to be able to play for others," then this course will help you reach your goals, and will help you enjoy your practicing and playing time even more.

Guitar Playing,    

It includes the mechanical level of the performing and the implementation of the gained knowledge and skills by exercises etudes and pieces, which are developed and selected in a way that introduces to you the new things gradually and smoothly.    

Music theory    

I will teach you how to read music notation. The music theory presented in this course is strongly related with your classical guitar playing the materials are designed to help you understand and to support the music you perform with theoretical knowledge as much as possible, The theory that you will learn is in sync with your guitar playing.

This course will teach how to play scales in all keys all over the fretboard, and will focus on developing good technique so you can improve your playing. This course is more of a technical, practical kind of course, so I don't go into the theory of how scales are built (although you can always message me to ask any theory-related questions, I'm always happy to talk about all that stuff with anyone who's interested. Playing scales is the single best thing you can do to improve your technique and your over-all guitar playing. If you only do one kind of technical exercise as part of your practicing routine, make it scales (whether or not you enroll in this course) We'll start by looking at some scale shapes that will get you playing all over the fretboard, then we'll look at left-hand technique, followed by right-hand technique. I think the most important section is the one on practicing strategies, this will help you make scale playing interesting (which makes it more likely that you'll actually stick with it). hand As always, the course is laid out so that you can follow the lectures in order and it should make sense and have a logical progression, but you can skip around if you like and work on a topic that's of particular interest to you. The course is mostly made up of video lectures showing my hands from a variety of angles, and there are PDF files with the musical examples written out in guitar tablature (no note-reading is required).

Classical Guitar Essentials Advanced – Part 1

It’s time to roll up your sleeves and start playing an advanced classical guitar music. This is my 5th course in the series “Essential Classical Guitar”, and you are about to enter the advanced level.

Over the last four courses we established a very solid base to build upon it. If you’ve been following the courses, this one will take you a few steps forward in your journey.

  • The first section is dedicated to study the Bar chords, something all beginners struggle with and even some intermediate players. We will learn about the Major and Minor bar chords only, the rest will be covered in later courses.

  • The second section we are dealing with the technical work for Grade 3 of London College of Music. This is where you are right now, so you need to learn this. Knowing the scales and arpeggios of this grade gives you a huge advantages and technical abilities to be able to play the music pieces.

  • Next, we dive into the repertoire of Grade 3 with three of my favorite pieces: Aria, Andante by Sor, and Valse. These pieces will test your skills and your bar chord abilities, and of course prepare you if you want to take the real exam.

  • After this, I dedicated two sections to music theory. Learning where the minor scales comes from, what are the relative keys, and how chords are constructed and other theory stuff is part of being a musician. Don’t worry about it, I explain everything with ease and link it to stuff you already know.

  • Then we have something new, an entire section for the finger-style technique. I always thought that classical guitar is the father of the finger-style technique, so from now on every course I will do will have a section about that. This will enable you to play pop or rock songs like “Stairway to heaven”, or Simon and Garfunkel songs with ease and joy, so don’t skip it.

Finally, I end the course with a Concert Piece called “13 Days in France” by Francis Lay, a beautiful melody with everything you learned about bar chords and finger-style in there.

This course is a collection of ten of the most recognisable classical music themes arranged for Rock and Metal Guitar. Unlike other courses that set unrealistic goals, this course includes arrangements that are challenging yet attainable by any intermediate guitarist. Each arrangement includes a detailed lesson, printable tablature, printable fretboard diagrams and backing tracks. Themes included are Beethoven's Fur Elise, 5th Symphony and 9th Symphony, Bach's Toccata in Dm, Greig's In the Hall of the Mountain King, Mozart's Rondo Alla Turka, Eine Kleine Nachtmusik and Symphony #40. Also included are The Barber of Seville, dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy. This is hands down the best video course on playing Classical Metal.

This is the second part of the Classical Guitar Essentials the advanced course. If you’ve been following the course since the beginning, you have reached to Grade 4 in London College of Music level, which is half way to the last grade. That’s huge! By now you should have a very solid foundation in the classical guitar, and you are comfortable reading standard sheet music notation.

We going to continue were we left off in the previous course, learning more scales and arpeggios and introducing your first 3 octaves scale which will open the fret board for you.

The first section deals with the technical work which is the scales and arpeggios for Grade 4 LCM, don’t skip this one as this section will prepare you for what’s coming. The ability to play these scales and arpeggios will raise your stamina and develop the muscle technique to be able to play for longer times.

Next, the repertoire section. I’ve chosen 3 pieces, each one with a different challenge:

  • The first one is “Etude in Em” by F. Tarrega, this study is required in Grade 4 LCM, and it’s a charming piece with one bar chord and a stretch in your left hand from fret 3 to fret 7! Don’t worry, you can do this.

  • The next piece is “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” by Bach. A very well-known tune in the key of G major. It’s written in triplets and will test your knowledge in the arpeggio of G major and D major. So if you’ve forgotten these two I recommend that you go back and refresh your memory on them.

  • The last one is a surprise, it’s the main theme of “Game of Thrones”. Winter is coming and there is a very challenging bar chord in there. For the first time we are going to use a CAPO, without it you will not be able to do the bar chord as it’s impossible on the first position! So go and buy one if you don’t have a capo, trust me it’s worth it.

In section 3 we are going to learn about the intervals. This is an essential concept if you want to learn more about harmony. As this subject is a bit complicated to learn in one section - or even one course - I decided to give you a hint about it in this course, and continue with it in the next one. You’ll be amazed how important this subject is once you started playing the exercises. We finish this section with classic hit from The Beatles, Blackbird.

The last section I provide a very useful tools for you to help you organize your practicing. There’s an article about how to practice scales, the link will take you to an external website called Classical Guitar Corner, which I think is the best website online dedicated for the classic guitar. It’s a free article, you don’t even have to leave your email. Look around and I am sure you will find something to suit your needs or answer a question you have.

The final lecture has an article by me with a downloadable recourse to help you organize your practice routine. Print out the schedules and fill it like I describe in the article, it will greatly enhance the way you practice, and accelerate your progress.

Play Leyenda, Canarios, and Bach on Classical Guitar

Learn how to make sense of scale practice, develop relaxed and efficient technique, and perform with confidence.

Created by Brian Riggs - Guitar Teacher

"]

Students: 601, Price: $89.99

Students: 601, Price:  Paid

This course is all about helping you realize your potential as a classical guitarist as you learn to play 3 great pieces from the classical guitar repertoire, Canarios, Gavottes 1 and 2, and Leyenda. You’ll follow a step-by-step course that shows you the most beneficial way to practice scales, how to use technical exercises, and how to play the 3 pieces at a performance standard.

What you can expect to get out of the course

  • You'll be able to see consistent progress as you follow an organized system
  • Practicing will be a pleasure as you improve your guitar skills, have more relaxed finger movements, and develop greater ability of musical expression
  • You'll feel the encouraging sense of accomplishment as you play pieces all the way through
  • You'll get answers to many of your questions about classical guitar playing

Your main goal for the course is to play 3
pieces from the classical guitar repertoire, Canarios, Gavottes
1
and 2, and Leyenda. The premise of the
course is that you'll have much more success if you thoughtfully prepare before
jumping into the pieces.

Playing the classical guitar is such a
multi-sensory experience, and a video-based course is a great way to learn at
your own pace. You know that there are no shortcuts, but by following a logical
course that starts easy and gradually gets more challenging your experience will
be much easier and rewarding.

Classical guitar is beautiful and complex, but
that complexity can be intimidating, so in this course every musical phrase
will be broken into a manageable piece that's easy to work with, and easy to
put back into the whole of the piece.

The course starts with some brief introductory
lectures that review the basics of the classical guitar approach, and then
moves into scales. You'll customize your scale practice so that you're ready
for each piece. It would be good to have some experience playing higher up on the fret-board, but you'll review the notes on the fret-board in the scales section, so you're prepared for everything that follows. Next, you'll start playing technical exercises
that are unique to this course to prepare you for the piece that you'll be
playing.

The lectures show the hands from a variety of angles, and in the lecture
descriptions you can find the time where each camera angle changes. The
lectures on the pieces start with a small chunk played up to speed, then a slow
walk-through the notes, followed by a more in-depth lesson on each hand.

You'll also get downloadable PDF files of
every scale, exercise, and piece, so not only will you receive a full score of
"Leyenda" and the other pieces that are in the course, but you'll have a clear view of
how to play every single note. This course doesn't contain any guitar
tablature, but remember that you will be able to see and hear every last note
in the course in the video lectures.

I hope you'll continue your journey with this
course by clicking the button that says "Start Learning Now" and
enrolling in the course and enjoying lifetime access to the lecture videos and
sheet music files. Thanks for reading and I wish you the best with your guitar
playing.

Classical Guitar Finger-Picking: Right Hand Arpeggios

Learn how to pick with your right hand fingers accurately and confidently with this easy- to- follow course

Students: 557, Price: $89.99

Students: 557, Price:  Paid

This is a short, easy-to-follow course where you will learn how to use your right hand fingers to pluck the strings in a variety of musical contexts so that you'll be able to play the pieces that you love with accuracy and confidence.

The sounds and the music that you can make on the guitar with your right-hand fingers is beautiful and complex, but that doesn't mean that playing with your right-hand needs to be complicated or difficult. You'll start by learning the most important principles of using your right hand fingers to play, and by then gradually building on these skills, you'll be able to play guitar better and express yourself with more interesting and complex music.

You're going to really enjoy this course if you would like:

  • to start playing guitar with your right-hand fingers
  • to learn the correct way to play the strings with your right-hand fingers and avoid bad habits
  • to learn how to sound like 2 people at once by playing a melody and a finger-picked accompaniment at the same time
  • to impress others with your ability to play guitar music that's sounds more challenging and interesting

The premise of the course is straightforward, that if you want to play music that has more than 1 part going on at a time, then it's necessary to use your right hand fingers to play the strings. The most common way to use your right-hand fingers to finger-pick on the guitar is to play an arpeggio. In the course, you'll learn what that means and you'll see there doesn't need to be anything difficult or stressful about that, and you don't need any special background or skills to learn how to finger-pick.

You'll start by learning the basics of playing an arpeggio with your right-hand fingers, then you'll move on to playing an arpeggio pattern while you have a melody playing at the same time, first in the highest voice, and then in the lowest voice. You'll move on to some useful picking patterns and approaches, and you'll wrap up with a bonus section on a more challenging technique called tremolo.

By the end of the course, you and everyone who listens to you play will be able to hear a difference as you play music that sounds more complex and interesting.

Finger Style Blues Guitar Made Easy

Students: 535, Price: $29.99

Students: 535, Price:  Paid

It really does not matter if you've never played Blues Guitar before, or what age you are, you just need to be enthusiastic about learning to play.

This Blues course is designed to introduce you to fourteen fingerpicking blues songs, featuring a wide variety of styles and which are great for playing and performing and with no improvisation involved.

Although I designed this course primarily for classical guitarists it is also perfect for guitarists of all        styles who have some fingerpicking experience and who are proficient playing basic chords such as G, G7, C, C7 etc.and can be played on any classical, acoustic or semi-acoustic guitar.

No chords involving full bars feature in this course.

 Let me take you through the course.

 This MISSISSIPPI DELTA BLUES course draws on influences from all the way across the Southern           states of the USA, from Texas in the west to the Carolinas in the east, and gets underway with a 12   Bar Blues (Boxcar Blues) followed by 13 more blues songs in a variety of styles including Ragtime,           Country, Hokum Blues,a Ballad and three gentle jazz/ blues pieces of music. 

 My ‘Fingerstyle Blues Made Easy’ course has several aims:

 I want you love playing all the pieces you will be studying.

 I want to enhance your playing and broaden your repertoire by introducing you to many different           styles of Blues music.

  And in the case of Classical Guitarists, I take great pleasure in introducing you to a whole new world of    music.

 I have used my 35 years experience as a guitar teacher to carefully structure this course to ensure     that you get the maximum pleasure and satisfaction from your guitar playing adventure.

 It is not essential to have developed a good Classical Guitar technique to cope with the right hand   Fingerpicking.                                                                                                                                                                            

You don't even have to read music to take this course. In addition to all the video lessons, every piece of music you will be playing is written out in very easy to understand TAB form as well as standard music notation for those of you who prefer sight read. I've also written helpful notes to complement every video lecture and included invaluable advice on how to best master each piece. 

Numerous scientific studies have proved that playing an instrument has huge benefits and enhances general educational learning as well as being incredibly enriching, not only that, but playing the guitar is also a great way for you to make new friends.

I absolutely believe learning has to be fun and I look forward to you joining me on this exciting journey.

Find out how new engineering design methods like Sub-Division Modeling, 3D Printing, Generative Design and Synchronous Technology can help you develop prototypes faster along with how to validate a concept as quickly as possible and the issues of 3D Printing larger parts.   

Much of the class focuses on Sub-D modeling. The Solid Edge subdivision modeling environment generates a stylized body using a polygonal cage to control its shape. By continuously manipulating and subdividing the cage, you can add greater levels of detail and control until you have the shape you desire. Subdivision modeling provides a higher level of control than using polygons alone. It allows sharp edges in conjunction with smooth flowing surfaces.  With Sub-D modeling you can develop distinctively unique products based on organic shapes without the need for expert knowledge. Solid Edge subdivision modeling includes tools that provide advanced capabilities for shape creation, manipulation, and analysis. These tools allow anyone, even beginners, to quickly and easily create high-quality advanced shapes based on complex geometry.

If you are looking for more details on Generative Design take a look at my Udemy class: Generative Modeling - Designer Based Structural Optimization.  This class starts with the basics and works its way up to more complex examples.

 

Classical Guitar Essentials – Advanced Pro

Students: 366, Price:  Paid

The Classical Guitar Essentials Advanced Pro is the final course in this series. If you've been following the series since Part 1 The Basics, you've come a long way in your journey in learning Classical Guitar. Way to Go!

In this course we will finish off with 3 Masterpieces in the Classical Guitar world:

1. “Lagrima” by Francisco Tarrega

Spanish guitarist Francisco Tarrega is often called 'The father of modern classical guitar' due to his great influence on expanding its technique and repertoire. This piece is one of his most famous studies, sometimes they call it "Teardrop", and you'll know why when you play it.

This piece is in two sections: one in E Major, the other in E minor. There is much fingerboard movement and a lot of attention should be given to the left hand fingering, something we will discuss in details in the course.

This one is a MUST for any classical guitar student.

2. “Romance” (Anonymous)

This popular Spanish melody is one of the most recognizable melody for classical guitar. Although no one knows who composed it (Anonymous), it remains a beautiful melody and it demonstrates your skills in a lot of ways.

Written also in two parts, the first in E minor, and the second in E Major, it contains overall 7 Bar Chords which some requires wide stretches. Lots of dynamics and the use of vibrato in some notes will make this piece one of your favorite to play for yourself and your family.

This is where all the training on the bar chords will really pay off.

3. “Allegro” Op.40 No.6 by Mauro Giuliani

Less famous piece compared to the others, but still it contains double notes in 3rds and harmonized melody that will test your abilities on the fingerboard.

The technique of playing 3rds using guide finger on the first two strings, is a very new technique which we haven't discussed yet. So this one will be a new ground for you, and it will break the pattern of playing arpeggios and scales.

This final course is targeting the advanced/intermediate students who has been following me since the beginning. However, if this is your first course with me, make sure that you can read standard sheet music, as there are not TABS in the course!

We start the course with a group of scales and arpeggios, mostly 3 octaves to cover the whole fingerboard. These scales and arpeggios are from The London College of Music Grade 5 exam book. Also the three pieces we are covering here are from the same level. If you wish to take the exam, this course will help you massively to score Distinction, which is the highest score in LCM. But if you don't want to, the scales and arpeggios here will help you understand the pieces - and music in general - so you know what are you playing, and why the pieces sound like what they sound.

Also I included 2 other small pieces to help you practice and memorize the new scales that we are covering here. Playing the scales over and over will only help you develop your fingers. However, implementing the scales in your playing, this is where the small pieces will come in handy.

The pieces are “La Donna E Mobile” From Rigoletto, and “Humoreske” By Dvorak.

The course is rather short compared to my other courses, and the reason is that the pieces are really long (2 of them) and quit hard. Still you will learn a lot from them, and your technique will be enhancing dramatically.

In this course you will build up on what you have learned in Level 1.

Learn and implement arpeggio patterns. Arpeggio technique is an important asset for the classical guitar player. With the foundation that you have from Level 1- plucking chords in variety of ways, you will find that it will be just natural for you to learn and implement this new technique.

Learn new ways of eliciting chords -  different plucking and strumming techniques, introduced to you in an explicit way, following the ones that you learned earlier.

Music theory - closely related with the music that is presented in the course. I will not teach you things that you don't need now. But in contrary the theory is restricted to the terms and symbols which you see in the score that you play.

Ensemble playing - Duets, Trio. Playing in ensemble is an essential part of the music education, along with the fun that this activity gives you, it helps you understand better your instrument. With the ensemble pieces provided in this course you  get a first hand experience of two or three melodies that are played simultaneously. You have a chance to experience yourself different layers of the music texture. You see and follow the other part or parts wile playing yours. This itself,  is of a great value when it comes to playing classical guitar music as the guitar is a multi - voice instrument.   

Practice sessions - with me, which will help you learn better and don't feel lonely while practicing. once you have learned your part, we will be practicing ensemble pieces together.

Pieces by Matteo Carcassi and Antonio Cano. with everything that you have learned in level 1 and level 2 You will find that you are fully prepared to play those classical guitar tunes. I present them to you with separate technical exercises extracted from the pieces themselves. Those exercises will help you to play the actual pieces effortlessly.   

Supplementary pieces by Fernando Sor and Joseph Kuffner. I have included few pieces that you can play using the skills and knowledge that you acquired from the course.

I whish you good luck!

Learn Classical Guitar Technique: The Next Step 80/20

Learn to focus on the areas that will yield the best results; develop good technique in both hands; learn to play Bach

Created by Brian Riggs - Guitar Teacher

"]

Students: 311, Price: $89.99

Students: 311, Price:  Paid

The title of this course refers to the fact that when you are learning a new skill, 80% of your results will come from 20% of your efforts. The key then is to spend as much time on that 20%. With an art form like classical guitar there aren't any shortcuts, but the problem is that too many people take that to mean that you should struggle and not make progress for a long time. Something I see in lessons is that certain bad habits get reinforced, so that even with lots of practice time there isn't much improvement.

This course is laser-focused on the skills that are essential to being a good classical guitarist. These skills aren't flashy, in fact if you are executing them correctly your audience probably won't be aware of what's going on. And that's what you want, since you want people to focus on the music, that's what people mean when they make the distinction between someone who is a guitar player and someone who is a musician.

That sounds pretty good, but how do you do that? It's essential to spend the limited time and energy you have for guitar practicing in the best way. To that end, you'll focus on techniques and concepts that have 3 key characteristics: 

  1. Common among the best players- what do the best classical guitar performers consistently do that sets them apart from amateur players? What makes "good" players good?
  2. Uncommonly taught- There's probably several reasons for this. The best players have often been playing so long that they aren't even aware of what they are doing. Also, guitar teachers (including yours truly) sometimes assume that if students just play the notes of a particular piece or study, they'll have no choice but to build their skills. You'll make much faster progress if you build your skills from the beginning.
  3. Doable by anyone- It doesn't matter if you have small (or large) hands, or if you feel like have any particular flexibility or aptitude for playing fast or big stretches. You don't have to have a music conservatory background, as long as you have some experience playing guitar, then you'll be good to go. 

That being said, this course isn't meant for absolute beginners. As long as you have some basic experience playing guitar and plucking the strings with your right-hand fingers, you are going to find a lot of good stuff to work on this course. There are over a dozen short study pieces written specifically for this course that will help you build your technique in 3 key areas: right hand technique, left hand technique, and transitions. 

At the end of the course you'll be able to apply everything you've learned by playing the "Minuet in G" by J.S. Bach. As always you'll have lifetime access to the lesson videos as well as downloadable PDF files of the study pieces and the Minuet written in both standard notes and guitar tablature.

There's a great quote by Abraham Lincoln, "If you give me 6 hours to chop down a tree, I will spend the first four sharpening the axe." Your technique is your axe and this course will help you sharpen it so that you can make the most progress. The longer I teach classical guitar lessons, the more convinced that anyone can play the classical guitar well. If you are serious about becoming a good classical player, then you'll really enjoy working through the lessons, learning the study pieces, and becoming a better musician. 

This is a video lesson-based course, with each lesson video lasting about 10 minutes and showing the hands from a variety of angles. The heart of the course is a set of 13 original classical guitar study pieces, as well as the Minuet in G by J.S.Bach. Each study includes a downloadable PDF file of the sheet music written in both standard notation and guitar tablature, and once you enroll you'll have lifetime access to the lesson videos.

This course has everything you need to start playing classical guitar. Even if you have no experience or musical training, you can start playing classical guitar faster than you might think. The course material is structured so that you will make steady progress building your skills and playing solo pieces on the classical guitar.

The main goal of the course is to play the great Spanish composition "Malaguena." You will also learn several other pieces/songs: "Spanish Cancion," "Ode to Joy," and "The Pami Song." Along the way you will pick up many helpful practice tips. This course will help you go from being a non-guitarist to a guitarist, as you will be able to enjoy playing real pieces of music all the way through.

Learning is easy because the video lectures feature multiple camera angles, letting you see the hands clearly whether you are watching on a computer, tablet, or phone. Every lecture that includes a musical example has a PDF file of that musical example written out in standard musical notation and in guitar tablature.

The musical exercises, scales, and songs are the result of years of teaching students in-person and online, and everything is designed to help you start playing the best in the shortest amount of time.

Classical guitar is a beautiful art form, but it can be intimidating. If you have ever wanted to learn to play classical guitar but were worried that it would take years of struggle, or would require some sort of special background or skills, then this course will be perfect for you. There are no shortcuts, but playing classical guitar doesn't need to be difficult or frustrating.

Learning from an online video course means that you can go at your own pace and re-watch the lectures as many times as you want, all on your own schedule from the comfort of your own home. When you are playing classical guitar pieces all the way through you will be glad that you took the first step.

While there is a lot of great information in the course, the real value lies in the sequencing of the information. In this course you will never be asked to play something or do a certain technique without being prepared for it. When you watch and listen to a good classical guitarist, what you are seeing is someone who has put together the mechanics of playing in the correct sequence, so that everything flows. Putting things in the proper sequence is something that is really important. It will allow you make progress quickly and with ease.

You don't need to have large hands or fast reflexes to play classical guitar, all you need is a willingness to learn and an understanding of the fundamentals and how to put them together.

This course is really a course of possibilities. Think of it as a point of departure, where you embark on your musical journey as a classical guitarist.

This course is all about playing the classical guitar piece, "Alman" by the 16th century English composer Robert Johnson. By the end of this course, you will:

  • learn how to use your right and left hand in the most relaxed way that best serves the music
  • understand what counterpoint is, and it effects your playing
  • have a solid understanding of musical concepts like meter and phrasing
  • be able to explain to someone what "Alman" even means

This is an intermediate course, so you should be able to play a simple, one-page piece and be able to more or less learn the notes to a piece from the sheet music (either standard music notes or guitar tab) on your own. If you're a beginner, this probably isn't the best piece for you.

Do you wonder how a concert guitarist thinks about a piece of music that he or she is preparing to perform? Were you ever curious about why one book has one fingering for a piece of music while another book has a completely different fingering for the same piece of music?

If so, you'll find the answers in this course. What's unique about this course is that in contrast to a lot of other online courses, this course reveals the process that guitar teachers and students go through in music conservatories and guitar festivals when they learn, teach, and perform a piece of music.

By the end of the piece you'll be able to play a piece of music all the way through to a high standard, but in addition you'll have tools that you can use in your guitar playing to take all of your pieces to the next level.

Each exercise and piece here was carefully chosen to challenge you and take your technique to a higher level of mastery.

  • First, we will look at a complex rhythm that we haven't got the chance to study in the past courses, which is double dotted notes! We are going to deal with fractions of the beat.

  • Next, we are going to focus on fret 6 to 8 on all strings. We have covered most of the fretboard in the previous courses, but I am aware that your sight-reading is very good to say up to the 5th fret, am I right?

      So, we going to zero in at these 3 frets to make your sight-reading better than ever.

  • After that, we will take a look at Arpeggios, and this time we are going to study them in a matter of forms which is a kind of big deal.

    I can't explain everything now but trust me these forms will connect the fretboard for you and let you see it more clearly.

  • Next, we will study 2 pieces by Mauro Guiliani and Matteo Carcassi to apply what we learned up until this point in the course.

And finally, we going to learn two more pieces from Grade 6 that's is required to enter the London College of Music exam, which is the first grade in the highest level of classical guitar (grades 6, 7, and 8).

This course is the first of series of three courses, so what you will learn here we are going to build on it until you reach Grade 8 which is the final grade in Classical Guitar.

Again, this course is intended for the players who finished my previous courses and not for beginners. I have a whole series of courses intended for complete beginners. If you want to find out more check them out here on Udemy.

Honestly, the material I provide here you will not find it anywhere else online. This stuff is what made me the guitarist and teacher I am today, so If you are serious about becoming a great classical guitarist, and you love the instrument I suggest that you hit that enroll button and you have 30 days money-back guarantee, so you have nothing to lose but everything to gain.

I hope to see you on the other side.
