Hi, I’m Josh.
I'm a guitar player. So are you.
Difference is, I do it for a living.
Is it 'cause I'm such a badass guitarist?
Long before I was good, I was lucky.
Want to be a guitar badass?
Then let me show you a few things.
That way you won't have to depend on luck.
How you play is way more important than what you play.
The intertubes abound with lessons on how to shred, but there was nothing good written about how to develop that most important of skills: killer time and feel.
"Use a metronome!" they'd say.
No shit, asshat. Show me how.
So instead of well-meaning BS advice from folks who don't actually know, I made you this free series showing you the specific things you'll need to do to get your time & feel together, so you sound like a badass professional.
Does it work? Damn straight it does.
How do I know? These are the exact exercises I used to take my playing from B-game to Badass.
Learn how to learn.
If you ask a hundred badass musicians:
"What's the most valuable thing you learned in music school?"
Ninety-eight of them will answer:
"How to practice."
I didn't go to school for music. So in order to get my practice chops together I read, studied, experimented, and pestered better, more experienced players in a quest to figure it out.
The result is this course: Ten lessons on how to build the habit of practicing. Twelve lessons on what to do once you're showing up consistently. Plus a copy of my favorite book on practicing. For the cost of one guitar shop lesson.
Music theory for the real world.
Music theory is an operating system—words & symbols that help you think about musical sounds. It's a lot of information, and having names for things helps make sense of it all.
The standard way to approach theory on guitar treats you like a child—velcro instead of shoelaces. (And about as useful once you're out in the real world.)
The music school way is like that guy in the bar scene of Good Will Hunting: "my contention is that the economic modalities in the Southern Colonies could most aptly be characterized as agrarian precapitalist..."
Congrats, you took one of the best things in life and turned it into a boring lecture.
Both approaches dump the box of puzzle pieces out at your feet and leave the assembly up to you.
Luckily for you, there's a third way.
Real-world theory used everyday by real musicians. Short lessons, arranged in logical order. Built-in review. Truly useful stuff, not superfluous arcane BS.
It's called GuitarOS. When you're ready to update the operating system between your ears, come join us.
