Grade 4 Pathway Options

I've designed the new 2021 Intermediate Foundation lessons to work great for everyone! 

👉 If you're coming from my Beginner Course, you can directly jump into the Intermediate lessons.

👉 If you've done my old Intermediate Course, you can get into the new material.

👉 If you're a more experienced player, you can dive into specific modules to develop the skills you need! 

There are six new series that will run right through Grades 4, 5, and 6, and that I consider essentials for all players, no matter the style they want to play. Each module contains five lessons for each grade. So, in total, each of these topics will have 15 classes spread over the three grades.

These are the modules: 

  1. Chord Study. This module starts with Barre Chords and also includes triads and chord extensions.

  2. Technique. Structured lessons to develop techniques and exercises to improve your playing.

  3. Rhythm Maestro. In this module, we'll learn how to read, write and understand rhythm. 

  4. Major Scale Maestro. Learn how to make music - for real! - with the Major Scales. :)

  5. Groove Study. This module looks at specific rhythm guitar parts and styles!

  6. Transcribing. A full module to teach you how to work out songs on your own!

Optional Modules

There will be further optional (but recommended) modules next, but these are subject to change. I'll only release them after the essential modules. These optional modules are less directed. You can add them to your practice schedule while consolidating the essential material if you want to. :) Here they are:

  1. Blues Lead - already live for grades 4 and 5 and some of 6.

  2. Rock Rhythm - exploring the styles and techniques of the rock masters.

  3. Acoustic Explorer - if you are tired of the same old acoustic chords, this will be for you.

  4. Songwriting/Production - songwriting and recording basics to get your creative juices flowing.

  5. Tone Meister - how to use your guitar, amp, and effects to sound great!

Below is a link to the suggested practice schedule for intermediate players and how to use it while the course is in production! :) Hope you enjoy it. Feedback and constructive criticism are (as always) very welcome! J.
