Rock & Pop Guitar Stage 5

Stage 5 is where guitar playing really starts to get exciting as we take you through some exact guitar parts of well known rock & pop songs. You’ll pick up some great techniques too e.g. strengthening your bar chord ability and knowledge, alternative tunings, right hand picking skills, string bending, playing riffs in 3rds and octave based soloing.

This online guitar instruction is a distillation of the live courses that Musicademy has taught to thousands of people. They are arranged in stages that will methodically develop your guitar skills in a step by step way. Each lesson should give you around 1 to 2 weeks learning if you are new to the techniques being shown. Each stage is designed to last a standard term or semester, so generally you should be able to master 3 stages per year if you practice a little every day.

Each 15-30 minute lesson will teach you all the relevant guitar chords, licks, riffs and strumming patterns to enable you to master the song.
