You can learn guitar with Spy Tunes!
Welcome to Spy Tunes, a learn guitar website dedicated to teaching you how to play the guitar, understand music and learn songs at the same time.
Studying some of the greatest songs composed over the last century, we discover how the building blocks of music can be understood using chord progressions, arpeggios and scales.
Learning songs on a deeper level like this will enable you to improvise, arrange and even write songs on the guitar.
Below are some of the songs you will learn when you choose to take your online guitar lessons with Spy Tunes.
Step by step guitar courses + Guitar Conspiracy 3.0
Understanding the job at hand is easy, actually doing the work is another matter!
Back in 2007 when Spy Tunes first launched, I sold an eBook called the ‘Guitar Conspiracy’. It gave you all the answers to what and how you need to practise in order to understand music and learn guitar. However, upon reading the book, it was completely down to you to implement all this information.
This was a huge task so since then I have, with the help of my students, put to together a series of step by step courses to guide you through every exercise and song using complete TAB, video lessons and in-depth explanations.
The courses are easy to follow 30-60 minute step by step guitar lessons. From your first open position chord to substituting arpeggios when you improvise a solo.
Start with the beginner guitar course and you need no previous experience whatsoever. In this course you’ll come to terms with open position chords, strumming and picking techniques. This is done alongside learning eight famous songs on just one acoustic guitar.
If you already have some previous experience, go straight to the intermediate guitar course and learn twenty-two complete songs with full TAB.
As we learn from the songs, we also discover how to play barre chords and pentatonic scales, all over the neck and in every key. This will, in turn, lay the foundation for developing the arpeggios and modes.
Should you have several years experience and already know your pentatonic scales, join me in the advanced guitar course. Here you’ll learn all modes, extend all chords and play another sixteen acoustic songs.
Finally, when you take the master guitar course, you’ll complete all exercises that will crack the fretboard code and set you free to speak the language of music, using a guitar.
We always practise an exercise in relation to a song and therefore actually put the arpeggios and scales to use, every time. This way you’ll never end up practising an exercise, wondering why you’re doing it.
All this practise means you’ll soon be able to arrange songs, improvise and even write music using a guitar.
To learn the language of music you must study famous songs as well as chord progressions, modes and arpeggios, pick it all apart and find out what is going on.
All songs and exercises are carefully organised over 240, easy to follow, step by step lessons. Take a lesson a day and you could learn how to play guitar in less than a year.
See you on the other side!
