The Axesense Guitar Method is designed to simultaneously teach the student to play guitar and to understand how music theory can be visualized on the guitar. This is a special Soundslice course that comes with a PDF book. If you purchase this course, you’ll get a downloadable PDF.
Written almost entirely in the key of G, this course will teach you all the fundamental scales to be able to play up and down the neck, most of the essential chords necessary to approach just about any song, and the concept of “The Modes” and how to apply them to the fingerboard. Each lesson has a corresponding video, and each lesson is designed to be a little more difficult than the previous one. That said, feel free to jump around.

Gordon Kahan has been teaching guitar lessons professionally for over 25 years. A former student of Joe Satriani, I began teaching at Guitar Trader in San Diego, CA, in 1988. I also studied music at the University of California at San Diego and am an expert transcriber.
A veteran of many bands, playing both original and cover music, I am adept at many styles but specialize in Rock, Metal, Blues and Classical. Later in my career I studied Jazz with the very talented Lorn Leber (Jerry Garcia Band).
While I love playing and performing my primary focus has always been teaching guitar. Many of my former students have gone on to have exceptional professional careers, including Mark Lettieri (Snarky Puppy), Scott Henson (bassist for the "Glee" band), and several others who make their living writing and performing music.
