Learn through playing
From the very beginning, Guitar Method is a practical course. You learn how to play by playing! By following the varied exercises and song examples, you’ll understand the major and minor chords and how they’re notated. By learning how to recognize the distinctive sounds of chords, you’ll quickly build a working knowledge of harmonic progressions. Before you know it, you’ll be strumming your first chords, then using them to play actual songs on your acoustic.
To ensure you make swift progress with your studies, and to make it easier for you to learn songs in future, it’s important to learn the theory behind the music. Guitar Method will teach you about tones, scales, the circle of fifths, harmonic progression, how to get different sounds, and about intervals and how chords are constructed. And you learn all this with your guitar in hand, learning to play the songs step-by-step. The course already comes with well-known songs to add to your repertoire: you’ll learn tunes like REM’s Losing my Religion and Radiohead’s Fake Plastic Trees to play along to with your friends.
In no time at all, you’ll be ready to join in with your friends in jam sessions, and you’ll have the confidence to play in different situations. To make sure you carry on improving, the final part of the Guitar Method course shows you a series of hand exercises to improve your speed and dexterity, as well as great tips to improve your guitar technique. You’ll also learn the rules for improvisation and transposing tunes into different keys, and be introduced to more advanced rhythms and all kinds of musical styles.
