Course Description

This course is all about chords, chord progressions, and how to apply them to writing and analyzing songs on the guitar. We’ll start with the most basic type of chord which is called a triad, and work our way through 7th chords. After you’ve learned about triads and 7th chords, you’ll learn how to turn them into chord progressions. Chord progressions are one of the most important elements to songwriting and most popular songs can be broken down to the chord progression and the melody. Everything will be taught on and applied to the guitar.

Here are some of the things you'll learn in this course:

  • How to build triads and 7th chords and how to play them on the guitar
  • How triads and 7th chords relate to the Major Scale
  • How to harmonize the Major Scale with triads and 7th chords
  • What chord progressions are and how they relate to writing songs
  • How to analyze chord progressions in popular music
  • How to create your own chord progressions
  • Much more!

An Easy To Follow Step-by-Step Approach To Learning Music Theory

Our music theory courses provide a clear step-by-step path for learning how music works and how it applies to the guitar. Everything is broken down into logical, easy to follow lessons and is taught on the instrument you play. Don't worry if you've ever felt frustrated trying to learn music theory in the past, our system is different.

Finally! A Music Theory Course You Can Easily Understand

The best way to learn music theory is to learn it on your instrument. That’s why our music theory courses are taught on the guitar. All of the examples and explanations are given using the guitar fretboard and with the guitarist in mind. This will allow you to learn more quickly than through traditional methods, because you’ll be able to easily visualize everything based on your instrument. It will also allow you to use the information you learn in practical musical situations instead of being left with unusable theory. So not only will you learn the theory, but you’ll be shown musical examples for everything on the guitar, and be given practical ways to use the information in real world situations.
