What do our students say?
“I started playing guitar two years ago and attempted to teach myself. It was going OK but I was really struggling with my timing. I want to be able to play with other musicians so timing is a big issue. Dean has helped me improve my timing and has given me the ability to play along with songs.”
I struggle a lot with timing, will this course help?
Absolutely. A big part of this course will focus on understanding rhythm, counting beats, rhythmic subdivisions and playing to a metronome or drum machine. If you struggle with timing understanding these things will help greatly.
I'm new to guitar, can I take this course?
Though this course is suitable for beginners, it really all depends. If you’re a complete beginner, this course might move a bit too quickly. This course would best suit someone who has a certain amount of playing ability regarding rhythm guitar but wants to get better. That being said, different situations differ case by case. The best thing to do is get in touch with me, tell me about your current guitar playing situation and we can work out whether you’ll be able to handle this course.
Is this course just about strumming chords?
No, this course is about a lot more. Yes, strumming patterns and basic chords will be covered in this course, but there’s so much more than that. This course is about what it takes to be a great, well rounded rhythm guitarist and will cover things like riffs, picking patterns, chords fills, how to count beats, subdivide beats and play to a metronome or drum machine as well as strumming patterns and changing chords.
I struggle with barre chords, will this course help?
Yes, if you’re struggling with barre chords or anything else to do with rhythm guitar – this course will help. In this course I’ll go over multiple exercises and techniques that will strengthen your barre chords, improve your barre chord endurance and speed up your barre chord transitions.
