The Essential Theory & Technique for Guitar Course
This course designed for two main types of people; the beginner guitar player who has no guitar or musical experience and those who can play guitar a little bit but are wanting to understand the music theory behind what they are playing and to improve on their technique.
Music Is A Language
Learning music is like learning a language. Music notes are like letters of the alphabet. When you learn how to combine them, you can create chords, which are like words, and with words you can create sentences and tell stories.
There are some great guitar players who don’t necessarily know all of the theory behind what they are playing, but using the above analogy of music as a language, imagine the potential that is being missed out on by not fully understanding what you are playing. If you were taking a trip to France, you could buy a translation book that could tell you how to say certain phrases in French, such as “Where is the bathroom?” or “What time is it?”, but imagine how much more you could communicate if you were able to construct your own sentences and phrases in French? You could say whatever you wanted without limits. Music is similar; by understanding the “why”, and practicing the “how” you reduce the limitations and open up a world of opportunity to express yourself with your instrument.
The course includes a full color PDF E-Book which is over 50 pages and provides further explanation of the material in the videos as well as guitar neck diagrams for your reference.
This course is 2 hours and 20 minutes long and should provide you with weeks worth of material to work on.

KICKSTARTER COURSE LEVEL ONE
The Studio 33 Guitar Lessons Kickstarter course is designed to start at the beginner level and progress up to intermediate. This series not only teaches you “how” to play, but also focuses on the “why”. We won’t just tell you to “put your fingers here” to play this chord, we want you to really understand why certain notes work together, while others don’t. Because once you understand how scales work, and how chords are made, it will unlock the mystery of music theory and really open up the guitar neck so you can play beyond the basics.
Kickstarter Level One is over 2 and a half hours long and picks up right where the Essential Theory and Technique course left off.
Some of the things you will learn in this course will include Playing with a metronome, learning how to change chords smoothly and quickly, some new Major and Minor chords, proper strumming technique and many popular strumming patterns and chord progressions to help you play your favorite songs.
The course also includes a full color PDF E-Book which is over 45 pages and provides further explanation of the material in the videos as well as guitar neck diagrams for your reference.
This course is packed with information, but it is presented in a structured, and systematic way. Each step of the way you will be building upon the knowledge you have learned in the previous lessons, so you will never feel overwhelmed or in over your head. You can move through these lessons at your own pace and watch the videos as many times as you like.
