Playing the electric guitar is different than playing acoustic or classical guitar. Yes, the fretboards are all the same, and so is the theory, but the technique needed for the electric is an area of study unto itself. Specific techniques like right-hand picking, left-hand economy of motion and melodic sustain all require unique attention when the neck is smaller and the sound is amplified. Read full description…

Playing the electric guitar is different than playing acoustic or classical guitar. Yes, the fretboards are all the same, and so is the theory, but the technique needed for the electric is an area of study unto itself. Specific techniques like right-hand picking, left-hand economy of motion and melodic sustain all require unique attention when the neck is smaller and the sound is amplified.

In this course, Kaspar Jalily helps you build your plugged-in fundamentals by outlining the techniques, exercises and warm ups that he uses himself. In addition to drills of dexterity, Kaspar also teaches the theoretical concepts that are most valuable to an electric guitarist: scales, chords, triads, pentatonics and modes. All of these concepts are applied directly on the instrument to make sure they stick with you throughout your journey as a guitarist.

If you are a beginner, this course will definitely lay a solid ground for your electric guitar technique and will aid your future creativity. You can also follow the provided 7 weeks practice plan to make sure you make steady progress and build discipline in your practice routine.

Intermediate and advanced players will use this course to consolidate areas of your technique. You’ll incorporate concepts in a systematic way and be able to access them more spontaneously.

In short, this course is designed by Kaspar to leave no stone unturned in your ‘Electric guitar foundation.’
