Modern Guitar Vocabulary

Incorporate modern guitar techniques, lines and concepts into your playing to expand your vocabulary.

Kaspar’s Modern Guitar Vocabulary course is recommended for the contemporary player who’s looking to expand technique and comfort in a systematic way, with real-world applications.

Kaspar, a session musician, takes you through lines and harmonic progressions that showcase economy picking, sweeping, tapping, tasteful embellishment and creative tunings. You can work at your own speed and digest the material in a meaningful way.

The techniques in these contemporary etudes will serve any guitarist interested in learning how to approach lead playing in modern rock, gospel, neosoul or even jazz fusion. Whatever style of music you focus on, if you give this course your time, it will establish a rock-solid foundation that will bleed into the rest of your playing.

Grab your axe — and be sure to practice slowly, with a clean tone. Let’s go.

About Soundslice

Soundslice is the ultimate learning and practice environment for music.

Our site gives you sheet music (and tablature) that’s synced with real audio/video recordings. That means you’ll be listening to real performances as you work through material — giving you insight into the human elements of music that couldn’t possibly be notated.

Use our simple-yet-powerful tools to explore music deeply. Slow down audio/video without changing pitch; loop sections simply by dragging across notation. It’s seamless and beautiful.

When you buy, you get instant access. Everything works in your web browser, with nothing to download or install. Works on tablets and smartphones, too.

Best of all, a majority of the proceeds goes directly to the instructor, not to a faceless corporation. Thanks for supporting musicians!
