    Chord Confidence Part 1 - Learn Chords on Guitar: Beginner is tailored for the new student, the not so new student (knows a few chords), or "stalled musician" (a person whose playing levels off/plateaus - because they don't know what to do next).    

   Beginning with the very simplest building block - the single note - I teach chords in a very practical way. I then show you, with only 3 chords, how songs make "progress" (we call this "song progression").   By the time you complete the course, you will have learned 12 chords in all - major and minor chords.  

   What has taken me more than 3 decades to learn, I have distilled into easy to digest lessons (Chord Confidence also has Part 2). By the use of my unique teaching style and GIANT GUITAR, I teach you how to avoid the pitfall of playing almost entirely by memory - the result of this for the new guitarist is confusion and complexity  - which can lead someone to become a stalled musician.  I show you how to avoid excessive "memory" playing by teaching you PATTERNS, CONNECTIONS, and ASSOCIATIONS-  the secrets of "effortless" guitar playing.  

   Also included is tuning, strumming patterns, and ways to appropriately engage your memory -  "MAKE MEMORY A TOOL , NOT THE RULE".  

  If you believe your MUSIC FOUNDATION should be solid, strong, practical, and with a wide base, I agree!  And that's what you'll get here!  And if your goal is to one day be a guitar player that can play "effortlessly", then Chord Confidence is for you!  Keep it simple, but develop confidence in your understanding of music!

Guitar Basics
They student will have an understanding of guitar basic parts, picks/their differrences, and tuning the guitar.
How does someone become an "effortless" guitar player?  Is that your goal as a guitarist?  This is the highest performance level that someone can reach musically.   The one sure way to NOT BE EFFORTLESS is to play everything you know by memory (did you ever use a computer whose memory was full?)!  Let me teach you how to - think right - to play right.  I will teach you patterns, associations and connections - so that your thoughts are organized, allowing you to become an "effortless" player!
Parts of the Guitar
What are the main parts of the guitar?  I briefly go through the parts; I then give framework for the course to "get us on the same page" - names of strings, how to hold the pick, types of picks, very basic strumming, very basic music terms, some exercises that the student can expect, and a brief description of the 3 chord progression.
The G Chord
The G Chord is one of the most widely used chords; in this lesson, I begin with the most basic - the note - the building block of music.  I teach you how to make the G chord and give you instruction for finger placement and how to make the chord sound clear.
Tuning the Guitar
Tuning is your first opportunity to give your audience SOLID SOUND QUALITY!  In this instruction, I summarize the introduction of the technology of the electronic tuner.  I also illustrate how though they come in different shapes and sizes, but fundamentally operate the same way.  I teach you the difference between a guitar that needs only minimal tuning, and then show you ways to tune a guitar that's badly out of tune
The 3 Chord Progression - Major Chords and Patterns
Students will be able to play 7 major chords, understanding how to play them clearly, and identify which chords are associated with each other.
The C and D chord
I start with a review of the last lesson.  On the GIANT GUITAR, I teach finger placement for the C and D chords.  I then have the students to add the G chord for the first 3 chord progression that I teach (one of five).  I give memory tips and visual strategies to remember all 3 chords.  I also show teach switching from one to the other.
Learning your first song (key of G)
I chose Amazing Grace as a first song because of the chord simplicity and organization - perfect for the beginner guitarist learning to switch chords.  I also include a "surprise chord" in the song - a chord that's very easy to incorporate at this level, and is also a teaching tool.  The key of G is suited more for a higher singing voice.  When we learn several 3 chord progressions, we have a choice of different keys to sing in - one comfortable for us!
The D-G-A 3 Chord Progression
After a review of the previous lesson, I teach the A chord - A is for apple; the A chord is very crowded, kind of like the "Big Apple" - New York City.  I am able to teach the second 3 chord progression, because the students have already learned the other 2 chords in this 3 chord progression.
Amazing Grace in the key of D
I lead you through Amazing Grace in the key of D.  This key is suited more for a lower voice, more than the key of G that we played earlier.  Playing more than one 3 chord progression gives us options of ranges to sing in!
The A-D-E three chord progression
After a review of the previous lesson, I teach the E chord, and then the A-D-E 3 chord progression.  The students are taught to do exercises:  play single notes for 'pick practice', to play and switch chords in the 3 chord progressions that they've learned.
Strumming Patterns
I teach that strumming has two components: 1)  it provides vibration to make notes (made by the left hand) audible, and 2) incorporates rhythm in the playing of the guitar.  The student learns 3 different strumming patterns in this lesson.  The first two share the same tempo (straight time and double time), but vary in activity, so the guitar learner has the opportunity to develop timing - an important element of a healthy musician.
  • You need a guitar and a tuner.Come ready to learn, able to practice several times a week for about 15 - 20 minutes.
Что Вы изучите?
  • With the 12 chords that I teach, you'll be able to play most of your favorite songs. You'll have an understanding of the "framework" of songs, allowing you to NOT RELY ON MEMORY ONLY for playing. I teach 7 major chords and 5 minor chords. You'll understand the relationship between major chords and minor chords, and have a grasp of how to observe your guitar fretboard for patterns and connections. This is your beginning to "EFFORTLESS PLAYING"!

Worshiper/(Former) Worship Leader

The first time I led worship, I was so nervous, that I led the team into a song that I didn't know the words to.  It's not easy to lead worship, and to learn the ins and outs, and ups and downs involved with it - as well as the spiritual warfare associated with it.

At age 22, I had an opportunity to go on the road with the christian band Wisdom.    While on the road - during an audition with Star Song Records (Newsboys, Matt Redman, Nicole Nordeman, etc) - a simple brief comment made by one of the execs changed my life (more about that on my website).  Because of what he said, I realized how the worship relationship is the epitome of the prayer approaches (worship is a form of prayer - more about that in the course). 

In 2014, God answered a prayer that I had - as a 'stale' worshiper - I wanted and needed more.  His Answer to that prayer resulted in much of the information provided here.  The 'Ascribe Worship' Method was birthed - it is the ability to worship for 8 - 10 minutes (or more) in a fluid, God descriptive way, with or without music (of course, music is a beautiful gift to worship with).  The result has been never again being 'stale'  (except for short periods - where God taught me to learn to grow my 'in awe' level - which I teach in the course - to keep the fires of worship ablaze and kindling).

I come from a very musical family; I am a drummer, an acoustic and electric guitar player, as well as a bass and keyboard player (one pastor actually called  me the "Chief Musician").  I did mostly backing vocals with Wisdom, but also sang some small lead vocal parts.

While on the road, Wisdom traveled to many states in this great nation.   (During our 3 years of touring – we played on the same stage as Bob Carlisle - ["Butterfly Kisses"] and Mylon LeFevre - both Grammy award winners - as well as Dove award winners).  On multiple occasions I have done studio work, and have also recorded two solo projects; (at the end of each module is a small part of my original song called I'm Drawing You). 

  I live in Louisiana Cajun County with my precious and beautiful wife, Maria, and our three dogs, and am the father of 3 beautiful children.
