Master the Fretboard
Foundations for Melodic Improvisation
May - June 2024
Course Level : Intermediate (1-2 years experience)
Join me on a 2-month program to learn how to ground your inspiration and express your creativity with the guitar
In this program we will learn how to use simple arpeggios & the pentatonic scale to create melodic, musical guitar solos on either an electric or classical guitar.
In this program you learn how to use simple improvisation tools & techniques to create your own melodies & guitar solos.
The program contains 4 modules - each includes a video lesson with musical demonstration, technique practice, and a creative assignment.
Each module takes 2 weeks - 1 week for fretboard memorisation & technical practices, and 1 week to work on the creative assignment
The creative assignments are at the core of the program.
They are the way to apply & give clear form to the principles we learn in the course.
For each of the modules in the program, you will compose and record a mini solo (30-60 seconds) of your own, applying the principles we learn.
Backing tracks will be provided so you can record yourself soloing on top of the backing track (no need for sound card, phone recordings are sufficient)
Share your progress, questions & creative assignments as you go through the materials of the program.
I personally review and answer each question.
Watch the progress and questions of the other program participants via the Shai Guitar Video App.
Inspire each other & connect with the other participants.
The course consists of 4 modules:
Module 1 - Creating Rhythmic hooks
Module 2 - Melodic soloing using the pentatonic scale
Module 3 - Melodic soloing using arpeggios
Module 4 - Combining the pentatonic scale & arpeggios
