Learn the fretboard in a fun, musical way

Join me on a 3 months online program to experience a unique way of studying the fretboard in a fun, musical & groovy way.

In the course we will learn the Pentatonic scale shapes and how to apply them all over the fretboard in an elegant, musical way, incorporating rhythmic & fingerstyle guitar techniques.

The course combines music theory principles with etudes (musical exercises) designed especially for memorizing the fretboard in a musical way.

This will give you freedom for more creativity, self expression & the ability to play in harmony with other musicians easily

The CAGED system

Modern approach to the fretboard

The CAGED system is a modern methodology where we use the open chord shapes (C, A, G, E, D) as a basis for studying the whole neck.

It is also used to apply appropriate scales to chord progressions, understanding in a visual way the connection between chords & scales

Course Content:

- The pentatonic scale: musical pattern and it's relation to the major scale

- The pent
atonic scale shapes and how they relate to the CAGED chord system

- Incorporating rhythm into our scale practice, understanding melody inside the framework of "groove" (rhythmic patterns)

- Incorporating bass lines into our scale practice, understanding the relation between melody & bass lines (which are the basis for chord prog

- Incorporating ear training into our scale practice, how to wire our brains to hear the connection between inner sounds & fretboard scale shapes
