Why Is The Chromatic Scale So Important To Guitar Players?

Understanding Modes For Guitar And How To Apply Them

Memorize ALL Your Chords in ALL Keys Easily

Here’s What You’ll Discover In Music Theory Made Easy

Module 1

  • 1 simple and effective way to memorize the seven notes of the musical alphabet (A, B, C, D, E, F, G). So you can quickly read music and guitar tabs.
  • How to memorize the 12 notes of the chromatic scale using the 6th string. So you can visualize the fretboard and always find the right note.
  • How to play the same note on multiple strings, so can play freely across the fretboard and avoid getting "stuck".

Module 2

  • Find out the crucial difference between the pentatonic (5 notes) and diatonic (7 notes) scales, and when it’s best to use each one.
  • How to play the major scale in any key, starting on any note, from anywhere on the fretboard… without hesitating.
  • Discover the most important key signatures for guitar (and which ones you can ignore), so you don’t waste time practicing things that don’t help you.

Module 3

  • Discover what makes a chord major, minor or diminished, so you’ll know which chord to use in any playing situation.
  • How every chord is made up of at least 3 notes. Which means, you’ll be able to play chords anywhere on the fretboard.
  • How to master interval shapes on the fretboard, so you can create ANY chord you want from scratch, any time you want.

Module 4

  • How to use chord fragments to get outside of “block” chords and create awesome melodies. So you can add embellishments that are real “crowd pleasers.”
  • A simple way to create chords from any scale. Which means, you’ll be able to play the “right” chord progression, even if you don’t have tabs or sheet music.
  • How to use chord expansions in the “real world.” So you can get creative with your chord progressions using simple techniques that sound great.

Module 5

  • Discover how the CAGED system works, and why it works so well, so you can play chords anywhere on the fretboard.
  • Find out how to apply the CAGED system in real world playing situations. Which means, you’ll use chord fragments to spice up chord progressions on-the-fly.
  • Easily play any chord you need to play, anywhere on the fretboard… even if you haven’t memorized all the positions.

Module 6

  • All about modes: what each mode sounds like, and how they’re used. Which means, no matter what song you hear, you’ll instantly know what to play.
  • Simple shortcuts for understanding which chords are best for each mode, so you can create songs that sound the way you want them to sound.
  • A quick and easy way to choose the right mode every time. Which means, you’ll never hit a bad note when you’re soloing.

Module 7

  • How to put all your theory knowledge together, so you can skyrocket your rhythm and lead guitar playing
  • An easy guide on how to write your own music. Which means, you’ll be creating your own songs from scratch in no time
  • Find out how to move beyond the basic I-IV-V chord progression, so you can create awesome songs that don’t sound like everything else

Module 8

  • An easy explanation of intervals, and the pattern these intervals make between strings, so you can find the right notes without thinking.
  • The advantage of playing in a closed box pattern (HINT: It’s super-easy to “see” the intervals in a closed box)
  • How to improvise in any key, so you can play with confidence and freedom and stand out at jam sessions

    Very helpful course. If I had persevered with my piano lessons age 9 I would have got all this stuff then & my musical abilities would have blossomed early & been very different.
    So here I am 60 years later finding out what it all means. As the light goes on in my brain I can see the way forward.
    I'm taking my time but old fingers allowing & with the brain's perserverance I will get to play my guitars well before it is time to visit the "happy hunting grounds". Thanks Steve, great course & an easy to follow presentation even if I do keep going back time & again to test my understanding of what you have said. Thank you. Keep doing it. Cheers, Kev

    I wish this was around when I was 18. Probably would have continued playing. Now that I'm in my 50's I decided to do it right. Finding Steve was a god send. He makes all his courses easy to understand and this one is no exception. I'm taking my time and am about half way through and the course is awesome!

    If you are serious about really wanting to learn guitar, how to figure out songs you want to play, or even if you are a teacher wanting to help yourself and your students, this is the course to buy. I can not say enough good about the man Steve Stine, his character, his wisdom, and teaching abilities. I have spent several thousand dollars over a 51 year career at playing guitar on various learning techniques, lessons, and materials, I have even recently paid for a semester at one of the highest rated school of music universities that some of the most famous musicians and singers attend. If you sign up for an internet course, the school will email various videos and cord diagrams and tell you to submit a video of you playing the songs, the advertised instructor didn't even grade the work, it was someone I had never even heard of. You will never get as much wisdom and knowledge from that school as you can get from Steve Stine and this course for a tenth of what the school cost. Please do not hesitate if you really are wanting to seriously learn guitar, I promise you will not be disappointed and you will find you can always go back over this course and discover something to help you or your students or friends become a better guitar player and song writer. Thank you.

    An excellent course which teaches the fundamentals well. I focused primarily on the basic theory several years ago and know it cold. I need to revisit the latter modules in due course. I have highly recommended this course to others

    Very clearly presented and useful.
    It is a shame that you can't download his courses and watch them when you are offline as I frequently am.

    Eddie Roop

    A step-by-step, logical, clear approach to music theory and its application to the guitar. This course is more evidence that Steve Stine is the best there is.
