Along the way I'm gonna help you develop
a deeper understanding of music I've
worked with a lot of guitar players who.
Have come to me because they felt they've,
their musical creativity and as guitar
players has become quite blocked.
And they need to find some kinda way of,
of, of moving along to the,
to the next level.
And what I really try to do is to develop
this deeper understanding of
the musical language, and to, to broaden
and expand your musical vocab, vocabulary.
Because music like any any language
depends on the vocabulary,
the use of, of words or these things that
you, you gather along the way.
So, I also wanna imprint ideas into your
mind musical ideas and imprint.
Certain movements on the guitar as well
that, after a while when, when I first
show these to you they, they may seem
they, they're pretty basic at, at first.
But what it's doing, it's imprinting these
movements and these ideas into your mind,
so after a while it just becomes
instinctive you don't have to think about
it and making music has nothing to do with
We have to kind of get beyond that, that
we need to develop these, these things
first we need to
break those bad habits that you've
developed along the way that have,
that have come along the way that are, are
holding you back, really.
Moving away from the chord shapes, which
can kinda trap us, you know,
when you when you have these, these, these
safe zones that you find for yourself you
can very difficult to break out of those,
so I wanna to help you do that and
by doing that we can develop our harmonic
Understand the relationship of notes how
their all related to each other and
how even sometimes by moving with a chord
just changing one note
can change the whole mood and feeling of,
of the chord can can
give us a whole completely different
atmosphere, because it's like.
We're storytelling really, basically with
music and that's what I've been
doing we're, we're, we're, we're telling a
story through music rather than words.
And I'm going to help you with your
so you can draw upon all these different
ideas to help tell your story.
That's really important, and also you're
going to be developing your ear training.
I'm not going to use a lot of notation for
because I really want to, I want to do
everything by, by ear.
So that you you hear these sounds and as
you, you hear them,
you know, what effect they have, what,
what those sounds have.
Whether it can be very simply one one
sound can create a feeling of happiness or
sadness or melancholy or humor these are
all things that we're going to,
to develop and, and use as, as, as we're
Along the way as well we're gonna be
we're gonna improvising right from the
As soon as even the very simple things I
wanna show you
I'll show you little exercises that you
can play but then,
I want you to take those yourself and make
little compositions, improvise with them,
play around a little, you can't break it,
you'll be fine.
