I’ve worked through Lisa fundamentals 1-2. I just left out the end part of music reading for now but will circle around to that when I need .


 


I’ve done a little bit of acoustic style level 1 with Anders . 


I can play many open chords . 7 an sus 4 chords . I know quite the theory on scales.


 


I once liked Ed Sheeran. I now like Olivia rodrigo. 

music I’d like to go towards is creating my own . R&B maybe pop . 


 


my main goal is to work towards unlocking the fret board. I like to learn 1-2 things for the day an then while watching a movie I then practise the 1 thing on the guitar . This is at the end of many hrs on guitar tricks . I do this so I can gain muscle memory.


 


I would like to creat my own unique music . personally I get bored with open chords. I’m still working on muscle memory for bar chords. I always feel my voice sounds nicer  when the voicing is coming from middle fret board register . 


I did notice the level 3 chord theory and you cover registers more an embellishments . Which I think would be smart for me to go there after I learn a couple of patterns from major triads .


 


I absolute love your videos and your enthusiasm when you teach btw 🙂. It’s real valuable lessons !! I’m truly grateful 


 

Thanks for the info.  If you haven't already, then work through this one on the basics of chord theory just to fill in any gaps in your understanding from the fundamentals.

Since you mention pop & R&B, the tutorials on the upper string triads will probably help your playing in those styles the most.


This one covers triads on the D-G-B strings for major chords.

This one for minor chords.

This one covers triads on the G-B-E strings for major chords.

This one for minor chords.

The other tutorials are for the lower string sets, E-A-D & A-D-E.  Those are not quite as used on pop music & if you are already working on barre chords, that covers the lower registers of the fretboard.


Hope that helps!
