GUITAR COURSE

HI, I’M ALAN GEDDES AND WELCOME TO OUR “BEYOND TABS” GUITAR
COURSE.
"BEYOND TABS" IS A SERIES OF VIDEO LESSONS WITH A FRIENDLY SUPPORT
COMMUNITY - FOR ALL GUITARISTS WITH AMBITION!

HERE ARE SOME WELL INFORMED OBSERVATIONS

THE MAJORITY OF ASPIRING GUITARISTS NEVER MOVE BEYOND LEARNING A
HANDFUL OF CHORDS!

LEARNING THE GUITAR CAN BE A SLOW AND FRUSTRATING EXPERIENCE!

I BELIEVE I HAVE THE SOLUTION!

Based on my experience of  playing gigs - whether solo, duo, trio,
or quartet, working in big bands, busking in the Paris Metro, playing
on cruise liners, being mentored by world famous Jazz Guitarist Martin
Taylor - no shame in name dropping - and many many years of teaching,
I have found the ideal solution!

I’ve put all the experience and knowledge I’ve gathered over the
years into this guitar course and know that I can help you grow as a
guitarist.

Everyone understands that you can't build anything of greatness
without a solid foundation - once you have a strong base all things
are possible and creativity grows naturally at its own pace.

PRETTY SELF EVIDENT? - well let's consider how the keen and aspiring
guitarist sets out on his or her personal musical journey

buy guitar

learn a few chords from friends

buy a chord book

buy a simple song book

lookup tab sites

try to mimic YouTube "stars"

start to feel a bit hopeless

more tab sites

SO HOW CAN I TAKE YOU "BEYOND TABS" TO A PLACE WHERE YOUR OWN
CREATIVITY IS AT LAST SET FREE?

I will help you build the core skills as a foundation to your
playing, training not just your hands but of course your ears as
well!!

Each lesson builds on the previous giving you a coherent learning
experience that’s not always evident in some other guitar sites.

"BEYOND TABS" will build your knowledge and confidence across a
range of playing styles 
- As your understanding of melody and
harmony grows you will increasingly want to improvise and even create
your own songsand we are here to guide and direct you through that
process.

It is fun, song based learning.

And of course with myself ALAN GEDDES and the BEYOND TABS COMMUNITY
you are never alone if you need a bit of encouragement or have a
question to ask.

THAT’S WHAT MAKES BEYOND TABS DIFFERENT FROM A DOWNLOAD COURSE - WE
ALL LEARN TOGETHER - AT YOUR OWN PACE, IN YOUR OWN TIME BUT WITH
SUPPORT WHEN YOU NEED IT.

LEARNING THE GUITAR IS AN EXCITING JOURNEY AND “BEYOND TABS” IS
HERE TO SUPPORT YOU ALL THE WAY

The Beyond TABS Route Map

We all like to know where we are heading. Check out the Beyond TABS

CONTENTS OF MODULE 1

BASIC GUITAR TECHNIQUE:
In this module I take you through some basic guitar techniques;
sitting positions, left hand technique and right hand fingerpicking.

READING TAB AND STANDARD NOTATION:
There are different ways to communicate music, in this module I layout
the basics of both TAB and Standard musical notation investigating
their strengths and weaknesses.

THE IMPORTANCE OF MELODY:
For many people melody is the most important element of music, it’s
melodies that move our hearts! Understanding melody is a prerequisite
to improvisation. In this module I look at some of the basic principle
of melody, analyzing the melody of the classic song “What a
Wonderful World”.

“EAR TO HAND” INTERACTIVE VIDEOS:
Learning to play by ear and to improvise is a dream of many
guitarists. In this module I introduce the interactive ear to hand
training videos that will lay the foundations for your future artistic
outpourings!

“What a Wonderful World” In this lesson I take you step by step
through a chord arrangement and a chord melody arrangement of the
classic song “What a Wonderful World”. Check out the promotional
video of the chord melody arrangement I teach in this module.
