This transformational course goes beyond everything you have seen about how to learn the guitar. You will learn to understand the entire fretboard at once, allowing you to break out of memorized scale drawings and truly express yourself creatively.

You will learn how songs and chord progressions are made, and how to express your own musical ideas over these songs. If you have always dreamed of truly understanding music and being able to improvise with complete freedom on the guitar, this is the course for you!

You do not need to know anything at all about music theory to begin, and you don't need to be able to read sheet music. This course will give you a solid foundation in both harmony and improvisation on the guitar that will serve you for the rest of your life.

Here are some of the skills you will learn:

  • Break free from memorized scale drawings. Learn to solo across the entire fretboard in any key.
  • Discover the "inner workings" of modern harmony. Master improvising over chord progressions and learn to weave your own melodies effortlessly through the chords.
  • Learn how to play directly from your imagination, expressing your own melodic ideas exactly as you hear them in your mind.
  • Learn to recognize chord changes by ear so that you can improvise over your favorite songs.
  • Move beyond licks and patterns. Understand how music really works and create your own music right from the first day.
  • Gain a deep understanding of the "modes" and learn to express these sounds in your own music.
  • Learn to create a wide variety of chords and harmonic environments on the guitar.
  • Special section on the 2-5-1 chord progression, the most important progression in all jazz music. You will learn to improvise your own original lines over this chord progression in any key.
  • Method 100% integrated with your ear, with creative exercises for both guitar and voice.
  • No prior knowledge of music theory or the IFR method is required. Everyone is welcome!

Includes jam tracks, class notes and self-tests

There are 30 lesson videos with step-by-step demonstrations on the guitar, plus extensive class notes with more than 200 illustrations. The videos themselves are short, crisp and go right to the point. Each video is between 10 and 20 minutes in length and teaches you the next step of the method so that you can immediately begin working at this new level on your guitar. Each lesson will give you about a week's worth of material to practice, and there are even self-tests and jam tracks to test your skills.

IFR Jam Tracks Level 1: Seven Worlds

IFR Jam Tracks Level 1

This is the the first set of jam tracks that all IFR students should have. You will learn the seven harmonic environments of the major scale, which will prepare you for improvising over chords and chord progressions.

This collection of jam tracks was designed specifically to teach you the seven harmonic environments of the major scale. We composed each track to highlight the subtle differences that make each harmonic environment unique. This means that as you're jamming over these tracks, you're also learning to recognize each harmonic environment by ear.

Experience each harmonic environment in 3 totally different ways:

Meditative. The meditative tracks give you lots of space for deep contemplation of the sounds. These tracks are ideal for getting to know the sounds for the first time.

Modern. The modern tracks let you hear each harmonic environment in pop style like the music you hear on the radio. These tracks will help you discover the beautiful melodic possibilities that each harmonic environment offers you.

Jazz. The jazz tracks let you really stretch out and follow your imagination. These tracks provide the ideal environment for more intellectual or abstract playing. Use these tracks to push the limits of your playing, both creatively and physically.

All jam tracks are provided in all 12 keys

Every jam track in this collection is provided in all 12 keys. (That's 252 backing tracks in all.) If you're just starting out, you can build your confidence in the keys that are easiest for you to play. If you're more advanced, you can target just the keys that you need to work on. And for the rest of your life, anytime you need to practice a particular harmonic environment you'll have backing tracks in any key you need.

IFR Jam Tracks Level 2: Pure Harmony Essentials

IFR Jam Tracks Level 2: Pure Harmony Essentials

In Pure Harmony Essentials you will begin improvising over chord progressions. You'll learn the most important chord progressions that appear in popular music and you'll learn to weave your own melodies through the chords.

This collection focuses on the four most important chords in contemporary music. IFR students know these as the 1 chord, the 4 chord, the 5 chord and the 6 chord. In addition to mastering these chord concepts, you'll also be learning about more fundamental ideas like tension and release, suspension, mood and storytelling.

Each jam track is a complete lesson

Each IFR jam track is actually a complete lesson in harmony and improvisation. Each jam track builds on concepts that you've already mastered in earlier jam tracks, and each track is accompanied by illustrations, teaching notes and practice tips.

There are 15 different chord progressions in this collection, and for each chord progression we give you backing tracks in all 12 keys. (That's 180 backing tracks in all.)
