Electric Beginners Level 2

Beginner Level

Time rock with power chords!

Welcome to our Electric Beginners Level Two course. In this course we really start to take advantage of the capabilities of the electric guitar over the acoustic - the biggest of all being the ability to plug into an amp and create distorted sounds! We therefore start by learning one of the most fundamental chords in guitar - Power Chords. These chords really do define rock, punk, indie and grunge music and you can hear them used everywhere from Green Day to Nirvana and Guns N' Roses! An indispensable weapon to have in your guitar arsenal.

Turn It Up To 11! Part 1

We will be taking a step away from the open chords and venturing further up the neck by learning power chords! Powerchords are the foundation of thousands of rock/punk songs, and we will learn how they work and play two awesome powerchord riffs!

Turn It Up To 11! Part 2

We begin by looking at palm muting, then we expand our powerchords and finally put it all into practice by learning a full Green Day style song! This course is great fun and will get your powerchords up to scratch in no time.

Electric Blues Part 1

There is nothing more satisfying than playing through a cool blues riff and seeing people move their bodies to the groove you're laying down! This is exactly what we want to achieve on this course, and we kick off with a blues tune and 7th chords.

Electric Blues Part 2

In this set of lessons, we will be tackling a classic Chicago blues sound that will not only sound great, but also seriously test your guitar skills! In fact, it is so tricky that we have dedicated almost an entire course to it!
