What is the point in music without self expression?
After all, when you learn a solo, melody or chord progression you are evoking emotion to that piece of music.
As guitarists, it can be very rewarding and fun to improvise your own solos and come up with your own chord progressions. So in the long run you can write your own music, or at least come up with some musical ideas with friends.
Improvising also helps a lot with ear training, learning to take what you hear onto the electric guitar.
Understanding The Fretboard
Fretboard knowledge comes with time, structure and a little discipline.
Having one of our tutors guide and mentor you through the process will not only speed up your learning, but also ensure that what you are learning matters.
Taking the time to memorise your notes, intervals, scales and chord formulas will help you to play any chord, scale, melody or phrase anywhere and everywhere over the fretboard and in different keys.
This is great for songwriting, working out songs you wish to learn and developing soloing ideas. Without this information you are only stunting your guitar abilities.
All of our tutors are happy to take students through this information, but only if the learner desires to. Some students goals simply do not include this as an accomplishment, and there is nothing wrong with that.
