What you'll do

Scales

Scales are the musical alphabet in which we communicate. We will cover several scales in this course and form an understanding that every scale can be derived from the major scale, making ALL scales simple to learn!

Triads

Triads are the building blocks of chords, so they are vital for any pro guitarist's knowledge. Triads will allow us to build larger chords as well as map out chord tones to land on while improvising and soloing.

Modes

Modes can be used to enhance improvisation whether we are playing in one tonal center or multiple different tonal centers.

Extended Chords

Learn all the colorful chords that include more notes than just basic triads. Spice up your rhythm playing with extended chords!

Rhythm

It's important to become creative in other elements of our playing rather than just notes...in this course we will learn to be creative using rhythmic elements.

Improvisation Techniques

Become a master of improvisation with creative techniques allowing our solos to sound like music and not just scales.

Practical Theory

Learn the music theory to succeed in the real world as a working musician.

Who you are
The only requirement of this course is the ability to play open chords.

Every so often you find a rare gem of a teacher who loves to teach the guitar, is special in explaining not only “how it works”, but also empathetic to your understanding of the lessons being given. I love how you come away with deep technical and practical knowledge presented about the guitar in Secret Weapons that helps you gain self-confidence and understanding on your journey to be a better player. Highly recommend Caitlin and her classes!

Caitlin is a great teacher, she's serious and fun at the same time. I feel at home studying with her and I learn so much. Each class is so eye-opening I feel like this course is just one long epiphany.

Her explanations are incredibly easy to follow. Not to mention, the amount of tools that she gives in one lesson is hands-down a huge bang for your buck. You can't go wrong with learning from Caitlin!
