Kickstarter Level 3

taught by Troy Davidson

Course description


“Learn on your time, at your pace”.

If you have been trying to learn the guitar on your own, you may be frustrated with your progress. If you are trying to gather information from many different sources, taking a little bit from one teacher and a little bit from another and attempting to piece it all together, you will probably find it difficult to stay focused and on track toward your goal.

The Kickstarter series is designed in a very structured and systematic way. Every aspect is taught in extensive detail and every section progresses from the previous one. You can spend as much time on each section as you need.

In Kickstarter Level 3, we really step it up and start looking at more advanced right hand picking, with string skipping and melodic arppegiated chords. This might sound complicated, but we break it down into its simplest form so you will be playing great sounding melodic playing in no time.

You will also learn inverted chords or “slash” chords such as D/F# or G/B. These are great sound chords that can give your music a real lift.

You will learn to play in different rhythmic feels and time signatures like 3/4 and 6/8, which create more of a swinging type feel.

 You will learn the main Barre chord shapes, which can be used to play any barre chord in any key. These chords will really open up some new possibilities in your playing. How to transpose songs in to different keys to make them easier to play or easier to sing. How to use a capo, not only to change the key of a song, but to provide more chord options and variations.

This course is packed with information, but it is presented in a structured, and systematic way. Each step of the way you will be building upon the knowledge you have learned in the previous lessons, so you will never feel overwhelmed or in over your head. You can move through these lessons at your own pace and watch the videos as many times as you like.

Kickstarter Course Level 3 is 2 hours and 17 minutes long.

Hi, I’m Troy, the founder of Studio33 and Lead Instructor here on the site. I love music and especially guitar, but what I love even more is teaching others to play and watching them succeed in their music journey.

I have played guitar for 27 years and I have been teaching guitar for almost as long. From private lessons to video lessons, I have had the pleasure of teaching thousands of people of various age and skill levels from all over the world.

After teaching so many people, I have developed a curriculum that has evolved and been refined over the years into what I believe to be the best step by step approach to learning guitar. My philosophy about learning guitar is that knowledge goes hand in hand with technique. If you want to simply play a few chords, you can easily find someone to show you where to place your fingers on the guitar neck. But if you really want to succeed as a musician, it’s important for you to understand what it is you are playing. Studio33Guitar lessons teach just that; the “why” along with the “how”.

Don’t be frightened by the term “music theory”, our lessons are laid out in a very organized, and structured, yet simple way that will teach you in a true step by step approach.
