Do you wish you had a better understanding of the guitar neck?

Are you tired of just playing open chords or barre chords?

Are you ready to spice up your rhythm and lead playing?

If you've answered yes to any or all of these questions they you're ready for this class. In this class Triads for Guitar on Strings 1, 2, and 3 I'm going to change the way you look at the guitar neck forever. Once I learned how to play triads I've never looked at guitar the same way again. They have greatly improved my ability to play the guitar and understand chords whether I'm playing rhythm or lead guitar. Now I would like to teach you how to play triads on strings 1,2, and 3.

Why should you sign up for my course?

  • My name is Chris Rupp and I'm the founder of the GuitArmy.

  • I've been teaching guitar full time for over 19 years.

  • I have taught more then 35,000 individual private guitar lessons.

  • I teach guitar students online all over the world.

  • I have a bachelors of music degree from the world renowned Berklee College of Music where I studied with some of the best guitar players on earth. 

  • I created a successful line of guitar instruction DVDs that sold very well and garnered the attention of the "As Seen on TV" folks.

  • I love teaching guitar and helping students become better musicians through the guitar.

Why should I take your class and not just learn from YouTube?

You can try to learn guitar from YouTube but eventually you'll figure out there's so many videos out there is very hard to put the information together in a coherent way. I have students come to me all the time that are tired of watching random guitar videos on YouTube and don't know how to put the information together. With this class you can get a very experienced teacher that can assist you with the learning process. 

Student Testimonial (Beginner Guitar Lessons - 10 Lessons) 

Hi Chris, thanks so much for reaching out! I'm about half way through lesson 10 of your Beginner lessons via Skillshare, so I was researching more of your teaching, and what's next... and found your GTC Online! I've gotta tell ya, something about your explanations, your method of teaching, and the detailed resources provided, you've connected so many dots for me -- it's appreciated beyond words! I'm mostly self-taught, regret that I started so late in life, and have tried other online resources, but yours has been the most comprehensive! As a corporate facilitator to adult learners myself, I just wanted to express my gratitude!
