Intermediate Guitar Songs and Exercises!

The intermediate guitar songs teach you songs with more advanced chords than the ones you learned in Beginner Acoustic Songs.

As usual the song lessons are divided into chord and rhythm guitar song lessons.

Start with the Guitar Conspiracy and read the progression as numbers for a complete understanding of the chords movement.

As your understanding of the fret board grows, do come up with your own variations.

Try different inversions, your own picking/strumming patterns and maybe even change the shape of a few barre chords to make the arrangements your own.

Keep this in mind with all intermediate acoustic songs, experimentation is what will really get you places!

Intermediate Chords Lesson

In these lessons we learn songs with more advanced chords than just the normal open position chords.

These chords are called barre chords and should be memorized all over the neck.

For example, as you’ll find in I’m Yours chords, the shapes are not your average barre chords!

We also include some bass lines, a few melodies, some extended chords and even a few slash chords.

Learn from the song

Pair the song studies with chord, chord progression and scale exercises in the to get the full benefit of the material.

Mad World for example, has a solo melody for the intro, don’t memorize it, instead think of it as what scale is used and what interval it starts on.

Following this path enables you to understand music rather than relying on muscle memory.



Barre chord shapes and pentatonic scales!

Your Intermediate studies include how to play barre chords, major and minor pentatonic scales.

A typical routine takes an exercise through several stages.

First individually (per shape), followed by a cycle of 4ths exercise and a connect shapes exercise.

Finally a second layer of cycle of 4ths is added before you can stop practicing that specific scale, forever.

Use the Work Book to keep track of your progress and reach your goals.

Scale and Chord Exercises

In the intermediate routine you get individual exercises per shapes, as well as exercises that connect scale shapes.

Keep these exercises to a click and write down your results in the work book to keep track of your progression

However, scale practice is not enough, it’s important to apply all this knowledge and we do this through jamming with the scales!

Jam Tracks

To try the scales out, apply your knowledge to the Blues Jam Tracks and the 2 Chord Loops for licks and challenges to test your pentatonic scale shapes.

All jam tracks are loop-able so you can try licks and scale ideas until you are a happy.

If you record yourself on video and upload to YouTube you can get feedback on your performance!

This has proved to be a very efficient method since students can look back at old footage and actually trace their progression!

Blues Legacy

If you get stuck for licks and phrases, turn to the Blues Legacy which contain classic blues licks from the most legendary guitar players around.

Take it all the way and you will learn how to play in the style of Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, B.B. King and T-Bone Walker, to name just a few!

Pair learning from the legends with jamming over Blues Jam Tracks and the 2 Chord Loops to see how scales, licks and chord progressions work together.
