Unlocking I IV V (Guitar Theory Made Simple)

Understand how and why chords work together! Learn the simple rules that govern which chords belong in each key, how chords relate to scales, and ways that you can quickly play them. We'll also take a look at how you can build your own chords, so you'll never have to rely on chord charts again. After this course you'll learn songs faster than ever before and play with greater confidence!  


"I have been struggling with the theory aspect of guitar for almost 40 years now. For the first time in my life, I am starting to make sense of the scales, chords, modes, intervals and how they all relate to one another and work together to make music a fun and enjoyable experience once again.

Secrets of Tasty Riffs & Solos

Discover the secrets of creating guitar riffs and solos that are laser-targeted to harmonize perfectly with the chord progression. Learn a completely new approach to working with the fretboard that doesn’t rely upon scale patterns! This course is a nice blend of theory with a heavy dose of practical application where you’ll learn not only numerous written solos developed specifically for four custom jam tracks, but you’ll also learn improvising techniques as well.

I’ve heard these sorts of riffs/fills/lines/solos before (as you’ve mentioned, they’re in lots of songs!) and I always thought they sounded great, but I never really thought through how to play them. How did those guitar players know what pairs of notes would sound good? It was a bit of a mystery to me… After seeing your “Tasty Riffs and Solos” course, it all makes so much sense now.

Secrets of Expressive Strumming

Guitar Scale Patterns

This guitar lesson builds on the concepts taught in Unlocking I IV V, and takes them much further into a deeper understanding of scales and how they relate to the fretboard. You will learn how solos come directly from the scales, and how you can play a scale or solo in any position you want on the fretboard. Specific scale patterns are demonstrated in close-up detail and taught in a way that will truly make your fretboard come alive in your hands.

My guitar playing really has drastically changed. I can do an improv solo to just about any song my friends are playing now. I never thought I would be able to do that. My only thing now is trying to get faster, but I guess that will come in time.

You will learn how you can efficiently cover the entire fretboard using only two scale patterns, and furthermore you will learn how you can use the intervals in the scale to create riffs and fills like never before!


I really dig the DVD. The info has helped so much just the few times I have watched it. I really wish this was available 20 years ago! My son has started to learn the bass and I am giving this to him. I do recommend this lesson for everyone and is a MUST HAVE for those just starting out.
The more you watch it the clearer and clearer the fret board becomes.

Having the ability to reach out and email any questions is such big bonus. GREAT Work.
