It's simple, it's fun and you even get to join the band!
This 'school of rock' begins with the very basics of rock guitar and proceeds through 28 guitar lessons. Taking you from a complete beginner to intermediate level in no time at all. Each lesson has a jam track to practise along with so you always feel completely involved, much like private 1 on 1 guitar lessons.
Think of this course as a package of real rock guitar lessons, each containing useful tools to further your skills as as beginner to intermediate guitarist.
As a guitar teacher, when I design a course, it is my ultimate goal to make the guitar lessons feel as close as possible to a real guitar lesson. I draw upon all my resources, lesson plans, experience and influences from the world of rock and blues guitar based music to bring you the best content I can provide.
All jam tracks are provided at 3 different speeds so you will never struggle to keep up. A bare track is also provided so you can actually become the guitarist. This features makes my courses rather unique in their approach. It also makes it a lot more enjoyable, and we all know that enjoyment equals faster, better learning.
You always have something real to practise, never just a scale, or riff, or set of chords left to fly blind with- you are completely immersed and involved from the start.
You have easy to follow guitar tabs on screen with PDF printouts available, HD twin camera angles, demonstrations of all rhythms and lead guitar, easily digestible lessons split into 30 videos, professionally recorded jam tracks with music all composed by GuitarJoolz and you also have the security of over 25 years of teaching experience, so you can relax and know you are in safe hands.
Early lessons cover power chords, simple rhythms, easy guitar riffs, basic chords and slow tempo. As we advance things get a little faster and more complex. Adding techniques such as, hammer ons, pull offs, slides, bends, vibrato, palm muting, alternate picking and many of the styles and secrets of your favourite guitar based rock bands.
We cover basic open chords, power chords with and without a root note, easy guitar solos, melodic and rhythmic concepts, barre chords, triads, inversions, pentatonic scales, blues scales, minor scales, major scales, chords including (9th, sus2, sus4, major, minor, min7th, 7#9), and easy guitar riffs etc. Most importantly, you'll actually apply everything you learn to real examples.
There is also a section towards the end of this Rock Guitar course that is dedicated completely to easy guitar solos and lead guitar, with four huge rock guitar lick examples to learn in the keys of A Minor Pentatonic and A Major Pentatonic. To be performed over the jam track at a speed to suit you.
Don't forget that these start off super easy, they are designed as guitar lessons for beginners. They get harder as they go along and by the end of the course you will be at an intermediate level of guitar playing.
So don't hang about, dive straight into this easy set of rock guitar lessons and get rocking!
