Presents great ideas

I didn't have any expectations going into this course. Jake presented his approach to writing riffs with an emphasis on music theory and reinforced the idea that it's not magic, but persistence that pays off.

Feedback System does not display properly

Feedback window comes up before I take the course - would make more sense if it came up after. Did the intervals course and the same thing happened but I did not give feedback before taking the course - I was not invited to give feedback after the course. The H of headline is missing - as is the Y of your feedback - I am using a macbook air - fully up to date - Have tried different browsers als

This is an excellent step by step explanation on how to build a riff.

I like the way Jake explains how and why he does all the parts of the complete concept. He provides the basic parts w/ all the underlying theory. After it was all put together, I understood what all was happening. He's an excellent instructor.

Connecting the dots.

It’s easier to understand than any tutors or classes I took. I was always doubting if what I was doing was correct, this course took all the curves and circles and straighten it all out. One of the best courses I’ve ever seen.

Music Theory and Songwriting Course FAQs

Probably! Only about 15% of this course is dedicated to the guitar, while the remaining concepts are taught in a way that can easily be applied to any other instrument. However, since all the theory taught is viewed through the lens of the guitar, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you own a guitar before pursuing this course to finish.
This is not a course on guitar playing or technique, but on theory and songwriting. The only skills you are expected to know is how to read guitar tablature, and the absolute basics of guitar playing (how to fret a note, open chords, etc)
I can confidently say that this method of learning will be more effective and valuable for many types of students. Since there is no wasted time or filler, it is more time-efficient than real life lessons where the teacher or student can get distracted. The printable materials are of a higher quality than most private lessons. And the ability to replay a lesson over and over is invaluable for students struggling to understand difficult topics.
Not quite- my YouTube channel explores more advanced topics without explaining the prerequisites. 95% of the content in this course is totally unique and unexplored on my channel, and is taught in a linear fashion as to make sure you’re totally competent by the end. There are only two lessons that include cross over with my YouTube channel. However, after some lessons, you are directed to specific YouTube videos I’ve produced to help expand on your understanding of the previous topics and to help weave my channel in with the course.
Nope! Once purchased you’ll have access for life, including any additional lessons or worksheets that get added in over time.
Currently, no. But I am working on getting a physical version of the course made instead of digital-only. Stay tuned!
If you are not satisfied with the course content or accessibility, you may request a refund within 30 days of purchase.
