Lead Guitar Phase One Module

Note – the Reviews and the Exams in the course are included in the lesson preceding it.  For example, if you’ve paid for Lecture 9,  the review and exam following it are included at no extra charge.  The same goes for Lecture 17.

Many lecture video times can range for about 15-25 mins per section.  Due to the focus of the material, there are very few places where topics are  just “brushed upon” or given a brief overview.  Each topic is tackled in depth.  In addition, there are “Drills” and Homework assignments for many lectures.

Note also that this Module is  not required for theory understanding, but it is a provision for those who want to exercise total command over their lead playing and options in any key on any string, and able to confidently play in 4 dimensions at any place on the guitar, creating an endless chain of approach and departure points, limited only by the dimensions of the neck itself.

No Boxes, No CAGED system, only a proprietary method that we believe achieves total fluidity, freedom and independence on the fretboard.
