Simple Ballad Guitar Chords & Progressions

The best music you can make when it's just you and your guitar.

About This Course

What can you play that sounds beautiful? What can you play that requires no accompaniment, uses just a few chords, and sounds great every time?

If you only learn blues guitar, you’ll be at a loss for notes when the situation requires something softer. In this Mini-Course I’ll teach you how to use 5 chord forms, 6 chords and 20+ progressions to make beautiful music that requires only you and your guitar.

My goal is to make you a more well-rounded player. The blues goes a long way, but where the blues can’t go, ballads can.
