    Become a Master of Scales, Modes, and Improvisation with the Interactive Guitar Scales Method

If you want to develop top-class guitar scales and improvisation skills, then the Guitar Scales Method (GSM) is the tool that will make your dreams come true.

GSM is a multimedia software that teaches you, plays with you, trains and drills you with accelerated learning techniques, and takes you step by step from your current level (beginner, intermediate, or advanced) all the way to total mastery of scales, modes, and improvisation.

In fact the method is so revolutionary and effective that it only takes a few weeks before you actually develop the kind of skills most guitar players can only dream about:

  • The ability to put your hand anywhere on the fretboard and play in any key without hesitation.
  • The ability to improvise effortlessly even on fast-changing chords and keys.
  • The ability to know instantly and effortlessly what scale and mode to use on any chord.
  • The ability to play instantly and effortlessly any scale in any key, anywhere on the fretboard.
  • The ability to use artfully the unique "colors" of each different note in a scale.
  • The ability to play great solos on any chord sequence.
  • The ability to improvise an endless stream of creative musical phrases.
  • The ability to start and close your musical phrases with powerful and meaningful notes.

  • The ability to use even your occasional mistakes in building ingenious musical phrases that enchant your listeners.

Most guitar players can only dream about such abilities, and yet these exciting skills can be developed with relative ease if you have a smart learning strategy and effective tools -- which is exactly what the Guitar Scales Method gives you.

A little "secret" revealed

If you want to improve your playing dramatically, you must understand clearly this most important point. Are you ready? Here goes:

Mastery of scales, modes, and improvisation is not difficult, it's only complex.

Read that line three times. This is exactly what it means:

Scales mastery is the combination of several "micro-skills", e.g. fretboard positions, fingerings, scale patterns, scale degrees, etc. That's why I say it's "complex".

At the same time, however, these micro-skills are individually rather simple and easy to master. That's why I say it's not really difficult -- it's just the combination of a few simple components.

So the smart thing to do is to learn each micro-skill individually and then gradually put them together.

This is exactly what GSM does. This is why the Guitar Scales Method is so powerful and enjoyable, making it possible for you to become a master of scales and improvisation in weeks rather than years.

And the next thing you need to know is that...

You learn by playing only

This is extremely important: You only really learn when you play, not when you watch others, listen, read, or think about it.

Sadly, that's why many guitarists try with different books, charts, methods, videos.... and generally fail to translate most of that information into practical skill.

On the other hand, with the Guitar Scales Method software you spend over 90% of the time actually playing your guitar: You play, enjoy yourself, and build your skills at the same time. That's how you really learn, rapidly, naturally, enjoyably, without excuses and without fail.

The more you practice with GSM the more you develop musical intelligence. In other words....

The mindset makes all the difference

Using GSM you immediately start to understand and experience the mindset of the guitar master, and then gradually develop such a mindset yourself.

This is extremely important. You see, you could spend years and years playing and copying the solos of your favourite guitarists but still not develop the ability to create original solos of the same quality yourself. Why? Because you have no clear idea of how the masters "think", you have no clear idea of their mindset during improvisation.

Only when you start to develop a musically intelligent mindset yourself will you achieve revolutionary improvement of your playing, and that is one of the main benefits GSM gives you.

Specifically, the Guitar Scales Method is designed to give you the ability to effortlessly "see" scales, modes, notes, degrees, chords, and chromatics on the fretboard. The end result of training with GSM is that you eventually develop a powerful musical "mindset":

    The effortless knowledge of how every note on the fretboard relates dynamically with any chord, and the ability to use it in practice.

Such a mindset is priceless for improvisation. It makes all the difference in the world.

In practice you will develop this mindset gradually. While you will experience your first break-through's almost immediately, you will have to use GSM for several weeks to a few months to get this mindset totally and permanently established in your mind and in your fingers.

And while talking about fingers...

Developing Speed and Technique

GSM will also train you to develop speed and precision, play scales and modes with effective fingering, and develop a rich collection of scale patterns.

This is necessary because after knowing what to play, you also need the technical ability to play it with precision, speed, and feeling.

Scale patterns, arpeggios, and other simple and effective exercises included in GSM will help you build the kind of serious "chops" you need to turn the flow of ideas in your mind into a flow of notes on your guitar.

Direct experience

I invite you to download the trial version of GSM and see for yourself how it works.

Download GSM TRIAL, fire it up, grab your guitar, do the first interactive exercises... and only then, by your own experience, will you start to understand what it really means to master scales and improvisation.

So you be the judge. I invite you to compare the Guitar Scales Method with any other book, e-book, course, video, tape, software, CD, DVD, chart, play-along, or any other method whatsoever.... and then decide if we are right to say that GSM is conceivably the best scales-learning method on the planet!
