Online Guitar Lessons
If you are looking for new guitar stuff to practice, you are at the right place.
Get started on the the path. This is our sequenced learning system centered on mapping chords and scales by key, training & jamming, and creating a broad sonic palette for song playing and writing.
If you have questions, get answers with a Custom Practice fuse or hub.
Join the Nucleus. It provides full access to all content and resources.
Or, try a challenge…
I’ve built a bunch of stuff here. Do you need it all? Yes. No. Everyone goes their own way. Rarely would someone go through all of the path. If you did, you’d certainly know more “inside guitar” than most musicians. One way I’ve been using it is with practice design. I custom build “mini-paths” or “meta-paths” for students with a Custom Practice hub.
The path is mostly for 6 string guitar in standard tuning. ST is a fascinating holographic tonal configuration which deserves our attention, to figure out. It informs other tunings (alt/open) as well. And you know that I love open/alt tunings. There isn’t enough time on earth to play in all of them (or even tune into all of them; or own 300,000 guitars all tuned in a new one). I’ll explore and map these territories until the end (right here, sometimes not right now). Try CGDGCD or even just DADGAD. They always deliver. On this site, alt/open will be a big part of our explorations through the next decade.
A couple of baseline quotes which inspire me to get to work, and bring new awareness into my practice:
“In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, in the expert’s mind there are few.” – Suzuki
“The depth of any understanding is intimately correlated with the depth of one’s confusion.” – Stephen Batchelor
Let’s get started, the path awaits.
