The reason you don’t feel confident with your improvisation skills for so long is that you probably don’t know HOW and WHAT to practice to fix it. It’s not your fault. The problem is that learning HOW to improvise is not something guitar teachers teach…until today!
What if I told you that the reason you are not able to fully enjoy the instrument is that you don’t fully understand how music theory works… You’d probably think that I’m saying this as an excuse to sell you a music theory course, right? After all music theory is a boring topic reserved for unexpressive music scholars that can’t even play the Blues. I used to think that way and for the longest time I would avoid anything that had to do with modes, intervals, and other weird musical concepts I didn’t quite understand. All of that changed on a Friday afternoon of September 1997.
We only had an hour left before the booked studio time was up. All that was left to record was the final guitar solo and I felt confident I could play a nice bluesy solo that would work well on the song. I plugged the Telecaster into my amp, made sure the tone was right, and told the engineer to hit the record button. This was my moment.
The solo sucked. It was boring and didn’t do anything for the song. Not a problem. The clock showed that we had 50 minutes left and I knew that a perfect “one take” solo is very rare. So I tried again and… it sucked too. 45 minutes left. I tried one more time. Third time’s a charm, right? Apparently not…
17 failed takes later and 18 minutes left before we had to leave the studio for the next client is when it happened. My friend Vince who was on bass called me in to the control booth and suggested I tried using the Lydian mode over the 3rd chord.
Of course, I had no idea what the Lydian mode was (and yes, Vince knew that very well). With only 10 minutes left to record my solo something had to be done. So Vince told me to just move the pentatonic scale I was using 1 fret lower.
I had nothing to lose. I went back to my guitar and gave it a try. What came out of my guitar in that final attempt is to this day the favorite guitar solo I’ve ever played. That’s when I understood how amazingly powerful music theory could be.
Over the past two decades I’ve helped over 5,000 adult guitar players finally understand and use music theory in a very practical way. All of them have dramatically increased their musicality and developed their own musical voice on the guitar.
What I have found is that long time guitar players who still can’t freely express themselves with musicality on the instrument are usually stuck in what I call the “pentatonic noodling stage”. They are good at playing a few pentatonic licks, but when it comes time to playing anything outside of the traditional Blues they start sounding like beginners even though most of them have been playing for decades.
After teaching thousands of guitar players how to break free from old habits and finally thrive on the guitar, I have decided to condense everything I’ve been teaching my private students into a super simple to follow, no nonsense step-by-step program I call the Improvisation Mindset program.
Music is a language. When babies learn how to speak, they don’t start with the alphabet, grammar rules, and rich vocabulary. All those things comes later. The reason we all learned how to speak was by immersion. Music should be taught in the same way. The reason you (and many others) are confused with music theory is theory is usually taught in very non-practical way.
The Improvisation Mindset course is different. Improvisation Mindset works because it teaches you how to actually USE music theory. Learning scales and theory without learning how to use them makes absolutely no sense.
The fImprovisation Mindset course is based on the same exact method humans use to learn how to speak. The method works for everyone because it immerses students into music directly without the need of any boring theory, scale memorization, or complicated concepts.
Let’s be real for a minute. If you are still reading this, it means that you know something is missing in your playing. I’m not saying that you are a bad player (as a matter of fact, most Improvisation Mindset students have been playing for decades), but you know that something is not quite right. You know the licks, you know a few scales, and yet… You feel that you can do better.
The Improvisation Mindset course is the missing key that will make you a GREAT guitar player, fully in control of your instrument. You will become an expressive player that feels confident in any musical situation. But you are also probably wondering “how much is this going to cost me?”
Putting a price on the absolute freedom of expression that you will enjoy after going through the course is not easy… Would you pay $1,000 to be able to play with full confidence anytime you pick up your guitar? It would certainly be worth it. But $1,000 is a lot of money… Would you pay $500? That would be a bargain, especially considering that you get lifetime access to the full program. But that is not what you will pay. You’re not even going to pay half of that amount.
