The way he explained reinforced what I want to achieve from this course.

Understand Guitar Chords and Any Chord Progression

Chords and harmony are basically the same thing, when you’re talking about music theory.  But, we need to understand how chords are made so that we can understand how a chord progression works.  Why do some chords sound great together, but others don’t?  Major and minor guitar chords are the main ones we play, but dominant chords are essential to understanding a chord progression as well.

This course shows how guitar chords are built, but it also shows you how to “hear” guitar chords, properly.  These ear training lessons will teach guitarists to hear tension, suspension and resolution.

Play By Ear and Learn Guitar Strumming

Learning to play by ear means knowing how major and minor guitar chords sound.  But, you’ll need to get used to dominant chords and learn to hear tension, suspension and resolution as well.

Most guitar players want to have great rhythm, which usually means a good groove (when strumming).  Guitar strumming in patterns built from eighth notes is the best way to learn this skill.  This course will show you how to understand practice and, ultimately, master guitar strumming with great rhythm.
