Guitar 2 - Unlocking Your Guitar

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

This course will suit you if you are a reasonably confident beginner rather than novices; can already play through some songs; or have already completed Karl’s Beginner’s course. What happens for a lot of us is we get to the stage of being able to play a few songs, but then get a bit stuck, and don’t know where to go next. What can easily happen then is that we get bored playing the same old things and not progressing. Karl has a bunch of cool things to show you that will enable you to break through that.

What we will focus on in this course is taking the basic ‘open’ or first position chords (A, C, D, E, Am, Em, etc.) and show you how to move those shapes around the neck. This means you can take the shapes you already know and turn them into a whole bunch of new chords without learning any new shapes. So your chord repertoire just explodes. This also means you can play the same chord in a number of different ways or different places on the neck, allowing you to exploit a much greater range of tones from your instrument, as well as enabling you to move much more efficiently around the fretboard.

We’ll also look at some new right and left hand techniques to add a whole new level to your playing and make you sound a lot cooler. These techniques include hammer-ons, pull-offs, slides, muting etc. We can also look more at the relationships between chords, how those relationships fit into song structures, and how to navigate those chord sequences around the fretboard. This makes learning new songs, or indeed writing new songs much easier.

My goal in this course is to help move you from ‘competent beginner’ to ‘confident musician’.
