Open to everyone - Beginners welcome!

This course is open to everyone. You don't need to know anything about music theory to begin, and you don't need to know a bunch of scales and chords on the guitar. I actually prefer to teach you all of that myself because it's part of the method you're going to learn. In this course you're going to learn how to picture both melody notes and chord notes on a single musical landscape, so that you can combine them effortlessly in your playing.

12 video lessons - Work at your own pace

This course is divided into 12 lessons of progressive difficulty. Each lesson will teach you the next level of our chord melody practice. You'll start by learning to control the bass note while you are improvising melodically, and later we will add chords to this framework. By the 12th lesson you'll be improvising in full chord melody style over the four most important chords in popular music: chords 1, 4, 5D and 6-.

More importantly, you will learn the process for adding new chords on your own. By the end of this course you will be able to study any chord progression you want and integrate it fully into your chord melody practice so that you can improvise with complete creative freedom over this progression in chord melody style. The practice itself is relaxing, fun and highly creative, and you'll be improvising your own music right from the very first day.

Testimonials from past students

"This course taught me how to be creative and play the guitar like an orchestra where all of the musicians can participate independently or together. As you gain experience with this method, you begin to see the guitar in a very clear way that allows you to quickly become very creative. Chord Melody Guitar is a course that I recommend for anyone who wants to understand and play the guitar creatively." - Kelbinson Martinez (Orlando, Florida)

"This course could change your whole way of thinking about harmony on guitar. It is an exploration of basic harmony through a functional exploration of the sounds, with improvisation at the core. The pace of the course is slow enough for beginners but if you are a more advanced player this course is open to your creativity. Thanks, David!" - Jean-Marc Sabourin (Montreal, Canada)

"This course was a breakthrough in my guitar practice! I had good fundamentals already but there were so many things that eluded me. I saw other guitarists improvising freely with melody and chords and I had no idea how to get there. This course gave me the answer. I was able to build a practice, very simple at first, that made me connect more deeply with the sounds I was playing. It's such a fun and relaxed process, and my practice grew naturally to a level I couldn't even imagine at the beginning." - Attilio Provenzano (Cambridge, United Kingdom)
