Welcome to The Ultimate Guitar Scales Course which will teach you how to play ALL the scales and shapes you will ever need in Contemporary Music and ALL over the fretboard! Whether you are a Rock, Metal, Funk, Pop, Country or Jazz player this course teaches you all the essential scales and modes that you will use in every style of playing.
This course focuses on the CAGED and 3-note-per-string shapes of over 30 different scales and modes with over 80 exercises and 35 backing tracks to help you learn them. With these systems it allows you to learn scale shapes in one key that connect all over the fretboard and can then be moved to any key. So instead of learning 12 different sets of shapes for every key you can learn one and just move it to whichever key you are playing in. It's a game changer!
The reason this course is called The Ultimate Guitar Scales Course is because it is quite simply the only scales course you will ever need to reference back to when exploring new scales and developing your playing. Even if you join this course as a beginner and just learn the basic pentatonic, blues and major scales, as you progress as a player and want to explore new sounds and flavours in your playing you can come back to the course and learn the more advanced modes and exotic scales like Melodic Minor and Harmonic Minor. Remember, once you sign up you have access to this course for LIFE!!
With the course comes a 70 page PDF of 'The Ultimate Guitar Scales Book' released worldwide containing all the shapes used in this course and some extra exercises to try for each of the scales and modes.
Whether a beginner, intermediate or advanced player there is something you can take from this course.
If you are a beginner this course takes you through all the basics you need to know to start playing these scales with lectures on the anatomy of the guitar, tuning your guitar, holding and choosing your pick, guitar posture, basic music theory, understanding rhythms and tempos, reading guitar tabs, reading chord and scale diagrams to how the CAGED system works.
For the intermediate and advanced player who may be bored of playing the basic pentatonic and major scales you can learn the more advanced scales and modes of the major scale, harmonic minor and melodic minor, taking your playing to a whole new level with some new exotic and colourful sounds!
At the end of the day there is only 12 notes just in different octaves all over the fretboard (No idea what this means? Don't worry it's all explained in this course). Once you crack the code and basic theory, scales and modes are not that scary at all which is what we do in this course!
