STRAT SESSIONS ESSENTIALS #1 – MUSIC THEORY ESSENTIALS
In this Mini 45 minute Course, I dive into the essential theory that you should understand and know to perfect your understanding of playing in this style. I don’t want to overwhelm my students and provide a huge comprehensive course on music theory – I just want to provide the nuts and bolts of music theory that hold this style together.
Here we go back to basics and strip back music theory to ONLY what you need to know… The Essentials
STRAT SESSIONS ESSENTIALS #2 THE CAGED SYSTEM
In the CAGED system, we take a look at both the theory of chords all over the fretboard, and also their practical application when it comes to playing this style. By understanding and using this system and the techniques and tips I teach in this 30 minute mini course, you will be able to substitute different chords all over the neck, and understand exactly how scales fit ‘around’ those chords.
I explain exactly what the system is and whats involved in using it, but I also give suggestions and ideas for practical use such as embellishing all chord shapes and incorporating scales within the chord that is being played.
STRAT SESSIONS ESSENTIALS #3 – 5 “DON’T NEED TO KNOWS”
Every guitar teacher seems to be talking about ‘adding skills’ to your playing. Here, I talk about taking stuff away! Removing what you don’t need so you can better focus on what you do need. The problem with adding and adding and adding is that we never really master any one thing.
In this 15 minute quick course, I discuss the 5 things that I think you can forget about (or at least forget a little bit about) when it comes to laying this style. These things can cause distraction from what is really the primary strength of this style… FEEL!
