Guitar Survival Tip #18 : Learn Music Theory as it applies to the Guitar! If you are like me you shunned learning theory forever, decades in my case. But learning theory opens the fretboard and gives you more and more options which lets you enjoy playing even more. Going to a school like Berklee is obviously a GREAT way to learn guitar but there are also lots of options on the internet. Before starting with Berklee I tried several online programs like @yourguitarsage and their value is amazing. You get a start to finish program that is easy to use, enjoyable and will teach you what you need and nothing you don’t. YouTube is a great resource and folks like Erich from yourguitarsage as well as @justinguitar give so much info for FREE!!! So there is no excuse not to learn the instrument you love! Guitar Survival Tips will try and fill in small bite size theory nuggets but those guys are the pros! - #guitar #guitars #guitarlessons #music #musictheory #theory #learn #learnguitar #learnmusic #guitarist #guitarists #guitarplayer #berkleecollegeofmusic #youtubeguitarist #guitarsurvival #playguitar #rockmusic #blues #bluesguitar #jazz #countrymusic #electricguitar #acoustic #acousticguitar #guitartheory

#guitartheory #guitar #keyboard #piano #fretboard #esystem #moneybutton #bitcoinsv #music #easy #compose Hi. I made a new twitter account #coolguitartheory @mishasguitar I have written 2 books, The E-System for Guitars and Number_Sonics. The guide to date-based music creation. I am in the process of starting micropayments based career. For that to be succesful demand for such a teaching is needed and tribe around it. Bitcoin offers already some cases where micropayments are possibe, such as #yours .org #moneybutton #keyport .tv. and I am using that on little scale already. Lets see how I will manage to bring it all together. Doing so from a lovely offgrid space in Southern Spain. I am a real girl, woman, with family and passion for life. Not a gready one. Just would like to stand firm on my feet and share my discoveries with those who want to learn and create. Also information from cryptocurrency space might be of value to you and I do not mean get rich quick, rather build a better world for everyone and get ready for the future. #betterment #bitcoin #bitcoinsv #metanet Follow me on Twitter and lets learn together some tricks with numbers.

I found this to be a really good visual exercise for learning Barre chords and working out the root 3rd 5th #barrechords #guitar #triads #guitar #acoustic #beginnerguitar #guitartheory #guitarlesson #taylor
About 2 weeks... maybe 10 to 12 hours of just dedicating my practice time to learning the fretboard and some basic theory. It’s been a little frustrating but just had a major breakthrough... so much just started to make sense! Almost 20 years it took me to commit to learning the language... tonight is big... the koolee is going to shred like it’s never shred before. 🎸🤘😃 #guitar #acousticguitar #guitartheory #anacousticnamedkoolee #playsongs #makemusic

Swipe through to learn your C-Shape minor patterns and drop a comment below with your thoughts on the new look. We’re continuing the CAGED Clarity series, but this time we’ve gone to the dark side! We’re going to explore the CAGED system in the minor realm. As with previous posts (which you should definitely check out!) we’re going to add notes progressively to the octave shape (which I consider the foundation of the CAGED approach) to create minor triads, minor arpeggios, minor pentatonics and 7-note diatonic scales. This is an awesome way to get loads of information into your brain and fingers. You can leave any questions below, and practise well 🙏🏻👍🏻
Most Important Soloing Scales in the world: The pentatonic scale is a lead guitarist's rock. Combine it with other available notes around it, memorise the shapes, and learn what sound each note makes, and you'll be on the road to freedom! Page 2 shows the same notes in another position, which enable you to move around the neck. Interesting fact: there are only 7 notes on this page!

If you are a music student, you most likely have heard the joke, “How do you get to Carnegie Hall?” “Practice, practice, practice,” is the answer. And while we often hear that “practice makes perfect,” a better maxim could be, “practice doesn’t make perfect. Perfect [or at least very good] practice makes perfect [or at least very good]!” What could be “perfect practice?” First, practice needs to be both frequent and consistent. Daily practice is ideal, but as I often say, “life happens.” If you miss a day, so be it. Just be careful not to let it turn into two or more. With respect to consistency, having a routine for your practice sessions can be helpful. Maybe start with scales as a warm-up, working toward more challenging technical exercises. Then, focus on your repertoire. (You have one, right?) Finishing your practice session with a piece that you enjoy playing is a good idea, just to remind yourself of the simple joy of playing music. Finally, practice needs to be “deliberate”; that is, there need to be certain skills that are goals for the week. For example, if you are working a repertoire piece, there may be 4 or 5 sections of about two or so measures that cause you to slow down and get out of tempo. Focus your practice on these few measures, and add a measure in front or after that portion. After all, the goal is not to play the piece from beginning to end several times and call that “practicing,” making the same mistakes each time. Similarly, if you are looking to build a better chord vocabulary, you can focus on developing a repertoire of standards that require more in-depth chords, and try to learn one standard per week. Or, if you are looking to add some different melodic ideas, you can study different modes and scales, and learn in what situations you would play a given mode. Then, practice a variety of those situations in a variety of keys. Again, the idea is to practice with specific, measurable goals in mind. If you need more specific pointers, or would like me to craft a specific curriculum for you, message my here on Instagram, or through my website, www.StudioProMusica.com. I’d love to hear from you.
How many did you know? Share👇🏻 We commonly start with learning the chord grips rooted on string 6(E) and 5(A), but did you know the rest? The CAGED approach is one of the best ways to be visualising and learning your chord shapes. Largely because it allows you to see arpeggios, pentatonics and diatonic scales ‘underneath’ a chord shape. Here are 6 ways to play a minor 7th chord (R-b3-5-b7). Share with a loved one with a tag in the comments👇🏻👍🏻🙏🏻

Back to our CAGED chords series, and this time we’re exploring dominant 7th grips. To our major chord shapes we can add in the minor 7th (b7) above the root note for a dominant 7th chord (R-3-5-b7). Each of the five CAGED positions offers a different way to play the chord. I consider there to be two chord grips within the E-shape.

The feedback was very positive so here is part 2 of CAGED Chords. To our major chord shapes we can add in the major 7th above the root note for a major 7th chord (R-3-5-7). Each of the five CAGED positions offers a different way to play the chord. I consider there to be two chord grips within the E-shape. Questions in the comments and make sure you let me know if you like what I do 👍🏻🙏🏻👊🏻
Comment and like if you want more like this 👇🏻🙏🏻 Five ways to play the same chord in an instant! I love the CAGED system. I love chords. This seems like the perfect marriage between the two. A new idea for another series on the feed. We’re going to see how the CAGED system works specifically in a chord context. The first fretboard diagram presents the chord tones of a D major triad across the neck - D (the Root = R), F♯ (major 3rd = 3) and A (perfect 5th = 5). A lot to remember, so the CAGED system helps to break it down into more easily digestible segments. We can progressively climb up the neck and see a series of 5 chord shapes that resemble the open chords C-A-G-E-D but which will all be a D major chord. Questions in the comments and make sure you let me know if I should do more like this 👍🏻🙏🏻👊🏻

Part 3 of my mini-series ‘How to Overcome Standard Tuning’. This time we applying the rules to a one-octave, two note-per-string minor pentatonic pattern (which has the following intervals 1-b3-4-5-b7). As we move the tonic onto string 5(A) nothing changes. But as soon as we move the tonic onto string 4(D) the highest two notes land upon string 2(B) and must both be raised one fret for the scale pattern to be correct. If we take this pattern down a string, again the notes falling on string 2(B) must be raised one fret for the correct notes of the minor pentatonic scale.

When using extensions. 9-11 or 13s, the 7 is always implied. If it’s a Major 9,11 or 13 the 7 would be a major 7 Chord with said extension. Example A M9 = and A major 7 with a 9 on top!

SOUND ON! Do you want to see more like this? Let me know 👇🏻 If we know there’s a difference in the tuning of the strings (from the previous post), all we need to do is adjust for that difference. The first thing to consider is how to easily learn your triad shapes across the strings. We’re taking a root position major triad from string 6 and moving it across the string sets. Simply adjust for the movement between strings 2 and 3 and you’re good to go! I’m offering an exclusive video mini-series exploring this concept in more detail, so be sure to sign up to my mailing list right now to make sure you don’t miss out on some more awesome content 👍🏻🙏🏻
