The Lettieri approach to guitar

Expand the creativity in your guitar playing.

Mark Lettieri


Culled from seven of his most popular Instagram “instalicks,” these video tutorials give a step-by-step breakdown into Mark Lettieri’s improvisational concepts and compositional process.

As you work through this course, you’ll learn how to blend the guitar styles of gospel, neosoul, jazz and country. Rather than relying on common basic (or even advanced) chords, you’ll learn simple music theory concepts that will allow you to create your own unique chord voicings that encourage spontaneity and musicality. That, coupled with an emphasis on rhythm and syncopation, will have you thinking and sounding like a more creative guitarist. Of course, there will be some great licks too.
