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!
- You need a guitar and a tuner. Come ready to learn, able to practice several times a week for about 15 - 20 minutes.
