Chord Melody - The "Master Ability" on the Guitar

Chord melody is the master guitar ability. It means being able to control melody and chords together, allowing you to improvise with the same creative freedom that piano players enjoy. You can create your own arrangements of your favorite songs, or improvise entire compositions off the top of your head.

When you see guitarists playing in this way, you might think that it's very difficult to control so much music at once! You might even think that these guitarists are simply beyond your level.

But that's not true.

Chord melody playing is one of the EASIEST and most RELAXED ways to play the guitar, because of the total creative freedom that it gives you. You just need a system for learning to combine all of these elements naturally in your playing.

This course will teach you:

  • How to weave chords and melodies together with the same freedom that piano players enjoy
  • How to combine bass, chords and melody so you can play totally unaccompanied solo guitar
  • How to improvise with complete freedom in chord melody style
  • How to practice chord melody playing in a way that is free and creative right from the start
  • How to create beautiful accompaniment patterns using your new chord melody skills
  • How to use chord melody as a complete system for composing your own music
  • How to keep growing even after this course, adding new chord progressions to your chord melody repertoire

No complicated acrobatics

I will teach you a complete method that allows you to improvise with melody, chords and bass in a way that is relaxed and natural right from the start. Chord melody playing should never feel like a complicated acrobatic routine of simultaneously playing multiple parts. Chord melody just means being able to add chord notes and bass notes to your melodies whenever YOU want to, without any pressure or difficulty at all. And through the step-by-step method that I’m going to teach you in my video course, you’ll learn to improvise with melody, chords and bass in a way that is easy and relaxed, and that gives you complete creative freedom to take the music wherever you want to.

18 video lessons - Work at your own pace

This course is divided into 18 video lessons. 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 end of the course you'll be improvising in full chord melody style over the four most important chords in popular music.

With these chords you can already play hundreds of songs in full chord melody style. But more importantly you will learn the process for adding new chords on your own. So by the end of this course, you will be able to learn any new song or chord progression and add it to your chord melody repertoire. The practice itself is relaxing, fun and totally creative, and you'll be improvising your own music right from the very first day.

What else will I get from Chord Melody Guitar?

Fretboard mastery. Improvising with notes and chords together brings the entire fretboard into focus. This means that Chord Melody Guitar 1 will supercharge your guitar playing in every way.

Ear training. Chord melody guitar playing is a tremendous accelerator of your ear training because it lets you hear and appreciate all of the beautiful musical relationships between notes and chords. When you're controlling both melody and harmony yourself, it's much easier to understand how music works and to learn to recognize all of these sounds by ear.

Enjoyment. My favorite comments from students are about how much more enjoyment they get from their guitar playing. Imagine being able to pick up your guitar and create beautiful music all by yourself. This turns your guitar into an endless source of joy, fascination and creative expression.

Confidence. As much as I love playing with other people, I never felt entirely complete as a musician until I learned to create music all by myself on the guitar. Learning to play solo guitar is like the final step that completes our relationship with this instrument that we love so much.

Testimonials from past students

"This course was a breakthrough in my guitar practice! 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)

"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)
