The coupon code you entered is expired or invalid, but the course is still available! Years ago, I was a basic guitar player like you, nothing fancy. Then there I was one Saturday afternoon, in a music store, watching a pro guitarist play. I got goosebumps listening to him. And I realized I had a lot more to learn!
I bought several music theory books and began studying them… but something was missing. Many instructors will give you a string of interesting but somewhat random lessons that are missing important concepts.
Faced with these frustrations, I set out to learn as many guitar songs as possible, and I examined their parts until I cracked the code on how the music was put together. I began to pick up on familiar patterns in the music.
I saw how different components of music fit together on the fretboard to make great sounding guitar parts. I progressed rapidly, then I began teaching… In my lessons, instead of using traditional method books, I showed my students what goes on in the minds of real players.
These students quickly learned how to identify keys, compose chord progressions, and select scales just like the pros… And instantly, they began picking up songs easily and creating their own music! I was on to something. Are you ready to rock? Get started now! Obviously, everyone works at a different pace, but I finished the first 9 lessons in a short period of time. When I reached lesson 10, I was blown away by what I had learned.
I have purchased books and videos which taught me how to play particular riffs, scales or chords, but I still ended up not really understanding what I was doing. As a result, I would start playing for a while and get frustrated by the fact I only had pieces of a puzzle and not a picture.
Then I would put the guitar away until the next time I got the urge to really learn how to play. However, when I decided to buy Fretboard Theory I found a system that actually helped me begin to really understand how things fit together. What I found most useful was how both the practical and the theory were emphasized, and that it was necessary to apply the theory to playing songs to really understand it.
The book references songs where the theory is applied and you can actually see the theory in action. I was also impressed enough by the book that I purchased the videos that augment it. I found the combination of the book and the videos work well for me, and I am beginning to move in the direction I want to for the first time. Now, after Fretboard Theory I love the system, understand how it fits with the major scale, its arpeggios, and how to use it. Playing guitar is my outlet and hobby; when reading and working through Fretboard Theory, I got so excited, and I felt my mind was getting the recreation it needs.
There was something about gaining understanding and fitting puzzle pieces together that was absolutely therapeutic. Listening to the songs Desi lists in every section, and hearing the concept applied is more than satisfying. Desi clearly has put incredible thought into how to sequence and explain the material. It is brilliant. Several times I would have questions as I started a new concept in the book, and then the next paragraph would answer my question.
The author is also very accessible. I highly, highly recommend Fretboard Theory. It is crucial for anyone serious about guitar and anyone who wants to be.
After years of being at a certain skill level, I am finally moving on.
