Simple Ballad Guitar Chords & Progressions

Take 5 chord forms, 6 chords, and 20+ progressions and learn how to make beautiful music.


Simple Ballad Guitar Chords & Progressions

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.
