We'll let you know when Lyle Moxsom adds new classes to Til.
Do you want to know how music and guitar playing really works? Want to finally crack the code? I'm going to show you that it's actually quite simple. We just need to understand the basic system which governs all music. In this class you won't be bombarded by a bunch of tabs and charts - I'm going to teach you WHY you're playing what you're playing. This is the crucial difference. From there on you will be at liberty to play whatever you hear and can imagine and this is the foundation on which you can build your skills in any direction you want. I'll guide you through my process of learning any song by ear and in this way we'll discover all we need to know about the musical system and how to harness its power. We'll cover various topics along the way!

Chords are the bedrock of our job as guitarists. As a rhythm guitar player you'll need to have a strong grasp of harmony in order to effectively 'set the scene' for the top line elements. I'll show you how to build chords from the ground up, adding extensions where desired in order to 'colour' the sound. Eventually you'll be able to express a virtually limitless number of voicings for each chord.
Our next most important job as guitarists is to express melody. This means being well acquainted with the diatonic scale and it's children scales (pentatonic, modes). We'll learn to strengthen our relationship with the notes in order to 'play like a singer sings'.
To play the right notes, you need to know where to find them! It's crucial for us to see the 'picture' laid out on the fretboard and the CAGED system is the way we'll get there.
