I've given you almost 1 month exactly to get through Session 7. It's time to move to the next session - Session 8: Barre Chords on the 5th String. If you're still struggling with Session 7, it's OK. Session 8 is very similar and will help you with barre chords. (est. time 3 weeks)If you've mastered the Session 7 barre chords, great! If not, keep strengthening you [...]

Course Walk-Through: Session 8 – Barre Chords on the 5th String

Wednesday, June 1, 2011

It's been over a month since the post on Session 6 and that is more time than is suggested in the Lesson Book so let's move on! Session 7 is all about Barre Chords. Barre Chords seem to give many people trouble and are often a major hurdle to get over. Don't fear though, while they may take a little more time to conquer, you can do it! (est. time 3 weeks)One secr [...]

Course Walk-Through: Session 7 – Barre Chords on the 6th String

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

Alright, I've given you more than an month to practice Session 5 and it's time to move on! Session 5 introduced you to simple chords - the basics. Like I say each time, be sure to go back to previous sessions to continue practicing and building that base. Session 6 will cover more chords - minor 7th and suspended chords. (est. time 3 weeks)Open Minor Seventh Chor [...]

Course Walk-Through: Session 6 – Minor 7th & Suspended

Wednesday, March 9, 2011

So it's been almost three weeks since Session 4 and we're ready to move on! Session 4 was a big session and if you don't feel ready, it's OK. I would recommend returning often to the exercises in Session 4 as they are great review exercises to continue to practice notes on all 6 strings. Session 5 will cover the basic set of open chords. (est. time 3 weeks)Basic [...]

We're already onto our 4th session in the course walk through! After about 2-3 weeks in Session 3 (20-30 minutes of practice a day), you should be ready to advance to Session 4. This session will focus on the final two strings, as well as give a good overview of all strings. (est. time: 2 weeks)Notes on the 5th StringThe last two strings both have three notes per [...]

Course Walk-Through: Session 4 - Notes on the 5th & 6th Strings

Tuesday, February 1, 2011

Well, it's been just over 2 weeks since we posted the Session 2 Walk-Through. That is about the length it should take you to get a good handle on the notes on the first two strings and become proficient on the exercises. If you feel like you're not ready to move on, that's OK. Many people take longer than 2 weeks. If you've spent regular practice time on Session [...]

Course Walk-Through: Session 3 - Notes on the 3rd & 4th Strings

Sunday, January 16, 2011

Are you ready for Session 2? The first half of Session 2 is all about reading music.  This topic is pretty big and could take a while to explain in a blog post so I am going to skip it for now and jump right to the notes on the first and second strings.  If you aren't sure about moving on from Session 1, don't worry; as long as you've spent some time practicing e [...]

Thursday, January 6, 2011

Off the tails of the last post on New Year's Resolutions, I've decided to start a series of posts that will take you through the entire Gibson's Learn & Master Guitar course!  The series will be called Course Walk Through. Since the course is very long, the posts won't be consecutive, but will follow closely to the time-line expected for someone going through [...]
