Advanced Guitar

Advanced Guitar Songs and Exercises!

The advanced Acoustic Songs use chord inversions you might not be used to.

A few solos are incorporated into the arrangements as well, sometimes as overdubs, sometimes not.

Both finger style and flat pick techniques are used in these songs, but don’t feel forced to use the same technique as in the video lessons.

Experiment with your own version, maybe even extend some chords.

The more you make an arrangement your own, the more you will learn.

In Tears In Heaven for example, the chord movements require some serious chordal studies.

The more you practice modes, arpeggios and especially chord progression exercises, the easier it will be to learn the songs and understand the music.

Since chord shape – pentatonic – arpeggio and mode are always related to each other, this actually just gets easier as we go along!

Learn Modes and Arpeggios!

The advanced exercises teach you the foundation of the modes and arpeggio shapes that you need in order to master the guitar.

As well as this, study the chord and chord progression sections carefully, music on the guitar is all built around this.

All these topics put together will teach you how to arrange on one guitar, but also to improvise solos using the technique: new chord = new scale or arpeggio.

Whatever you do, don’t rush these exercises!

Slowly and methodically, just keep track of them in the Work Book.

Modal exercises like the Aeolian Em shape exercise for example, is played according to the rules of the Conspiracy.

You add the extra notes of the mode one by one in order to hear them better. You do this so they stand out visually in relation to the pentatonic.

When the connection has been made between the ear, the intervals and the pentatonic shape you are ready to move on to Master Guitar.
