Master Library

Stop Guessing – Start Playing!

Welcome to the master guitar lesson library. Here you find a link to every topic covered in the master course.

These master exercises and songs are so efficient that once completed, you will not have to think anymore, you won’t even have to practise anymore!

How music and the guitar fretboard works will be as natural to you as your ABC’s. You will know how to build any chord, no matter what the name – as you will understand how all chords are built.

You will be able to move a melody from one shape to another – as you look at a scale shape as intervals. Changing key will be easy and building new guitar parts is something you can do by just improvising.

Acoustic songs

Master Acoustic SongsThe acoustic songs are huge harmonic landscapes with bass lines, melodies and extended chords.

In the course, we look at the use of modes and arpeggios in these songs so you can develop your own arrangements.

You’ll learn songs like I Wish by Stevie Wonder, Dream A Little Dream by The Mamas and The Papas which is great fun, what you learn from them is far greater.

Go to master acoustic songs to have a look at them already now.


Master Arpeggios To master the arpeggios we pair them with the major scale shape, just like you did during your advanced chord progression studies.

Practising like this will enable you to blend pentatonic scales, modes and arpeggios when you improvise and arrange.

Finally, there is a master arpeggio exercise that, once completed, will enable you to stop practising arpeggio shapes and just play them.

Chord progression

Master Chord ProgressionThe most important exercise to organise your fretboard you learned in the advanced course when you practised chord progressions.

Back then, you played all chords around the scale shapes moving up. In the master course, we play the exercise backwards as well as using the cycle of 3rd and 4th.

When you have completed these exercises you’ll never again have a problem moving a chord progression around the neck. Instead, you’ll discover new chord shapes and ways to play a song every time, for fun!

Master ChordsThe final chords to learn are 9, 11, 13 and the altered chords.

These will not be available in every single shape like the seventh note chords are. Instead, there are a few set shapes to memorise.

Most importantly, by adding these final chords to the fret board puzzle you’ll understand how to build a chord by just reading its name.

Chromatic exercises

Master Chromatic ExercisesPlenty of variations left in the chromatic and sweeping exercises, thirty-four of them in fact!

These exercises will refine your accuracy to perfection, making your playing more defined.

Speed is a side effect of great accuracy so if you want to play fast, all you have to do is push the BPM of these exercises.

Go to master chromatic exercises and see if you can play along with the videos.

Guitar course

The master course is all about completing your knowledge of the fretboard. We still use songs as our starting point to explore music but it’s time to set you free now.

All exercises and songs were developed to teach you the language of music. When you can speak it, you don’t have to practise it anymore, just go out into the world of music and speak it.

You can choose the pace of the course yourself, take one a day and you’ll complete the master guitar course in just fifty-two days.


Master ModesAt this stage, we can now take all the modes and combine them in one final master exercise.

When you can play this you’ll know exactly where every interval is, anywhere on the neck.

We still build from the chord shape and pentatonic scale to reach the mode, we just do it all in one go. This will pinpoint the exact difference between each mode in every shape.

Songwriters swivel

SWS ThumbThe master songwriters swivel has everything you learned in the guitar courses organised.

Chord number, chord extensions, arpeggios, pentatonic scale and mode. Any song can be understood like this, it’s just how music naturally works.

As a language this is not exactly difficult to understand, all you have to do is read the Guitar Conspiracy.

The real work lies within learning all these patterns on the guitar fretboard so you can effectively speak music, using the guitar.
