Challenging

I love it. He took a challenge concept and made it easy to follow. I knew about GAGED already but this way made it lot easier. I wish I discovered it sooner.

Another fantastic masterclass put together by Darryl.

I’m going through all the courses in Fretwise and I’m again blown away by the way Darryl presents material and gradually escalates the concepts and difficulty. This course starts by going over the basics of harmony, reviewing all the diatonic chords and inversions in a key, but also presenting the function these chords have in a progression. Then the most common (and useful) progressions are reviewed and analyzed in popular songs for you hear their practical application.

THEN the fun starts by going into the weeds of advanced harmony, where you will learn how to completely transform repetitive progressions into something completely new and interesting with diatonic and non-diatonic substitutions. The cherry on the cake is the run-down at the end where you review the whole course by creating everything from the ground up, from basic to complex; and then understand the different levels of melody/solo creation to perfectly tie in to your creation.

WELL WORTH the investment. Darryl, THANK YOU for such a well presented, thorough and easy to follow course. JUST TAKE THIS COURSE, beginning to end, then go through it again! You WILL be a different musician by the end.

Excellent introductory course into the world of fingerstyle!!

Darryl is a soulful and gifted guitarist, and a methodical teacher who starts every lesson by impressing you up front with his performance to get you excited; and then slowly shows you exactly how to there at a very digestible pace. You will start thinking “this is impossible”; and finish saying “that wasn’t so bad, let’s try the next lesson!”. This is not easy stuff, but that just goes to show how amazing of a teacher Darryl is.

The course will start with the basics of fingerstyle, practicing finger independence and basic percussion, and then graduate you to more complex rhythmic techniques to use your picking hand as a built in beat machine while you pluck, hammer, pull-off and flick away. All the techniques used by all modern day popular guitarists. Once you’re playing songs, he will walk you through his process of choosing a basic chord progression, adding a melody, coloring with chord inversions and extensions, and then finally applying fingerstyle technique to make everything sound cohesive and beautiful. You’ll finish the course by learning Darryl’s actual compositions, tying in all the content of the course together in gorgeous songs you will play for years to come!

Take the course, you will NOT regret it. Just make sure your axe is well set up. A comfortable action is a must to nail the hard passes of sliding chords with hammer-ons and pull-offs. I will be taking EVERYTHING else Darryl has to offer!!

Simple Explanation of Complex Ideas

I’ve always respected and enjoyed Daryl’s content as he has a way of simplifying complicated musical concepts. He’s very thorough in his work and is able to appeal to all skill levels at once through detailed explanation. I look forward to each new course he puts out because of this!

As Good of a Theory Primer as it Gets

This course goes along perfectly with the CAGED course that he offers and I personally have gone through both at least twice and plan to reference it as needed over years to come. Lessons are concise, yet thorough. I’d recommend doing one lesson per day to really get the most out of the material and to help it stick. The material he’s sharing is all very relevant and pertinent to your every day playing. There’s actually no section in any of his courses thus far that I’ve found to be redundant or non-practical. Keep rockin’ my friends!

Best Teaching Method For The CAGED System I've Ever Taken

I ordered Martin Millers Fretboard Visualization Vol.1 and it had plenty of “exercises,” if that’s what you want to call them, but it explained nothing. Darryl’s CAGED Masterclass is just what I was looking for! If you want a fretboard visualization system to tie together Chords, Arpeggios, Scales and Interval mapping then do yourself a favor, get this masterclass…Like, NOW!

A gem of a course from a gem of a player/teacher. Hands down winner here. I've learned so much from Darryl. Thank you!

I haven’t finished this course as I’m being as thorough as possible but its already provided so many incredible tools and lessons for hours of endless learning. It’s already a 5-Star course in my book. Darryl is an incredible teacher and player that has heaps of wonderful insight to the basics of guitar and music theory. Not to mention his tasteful playing is such an inspiration to my own. I’ve learned so much here and on youtube and I have you to thanks Darryl! Thank you. I love feeling the progress and finding connections through your lessons and my everyday playing. Hope to become my own best version of musical self on my guitar journey.

Personal side note as someone who has play guitar for over a decade and never learned a lick of theory. As I move through the course I make sure to take breaks in between learning the course material and try to apply it to both writing and learning other musicians music. I then go back and try to take a deeper dive and truly learn the theory behind what I’m playing and not just “memorizing” the shapes but really understanding the intervalic value and understanding what I’m playing (I happen to be learning triads). I find this more digestible and advise other to do the same if it feels overwhelming. I compare it to learning a new language – if you just memorize a sentence/words do you really know what your saying? It takes time and effort to truly understand it all. Multiple visits to the same lesson is it’s own lesson I’m learning! – You’re your own boss when truly learning and no ones watching so make it count! Good luck to everyone!

A truly brilliant course and unbelievable value!

This course is absolutely fantastic (and worth way more). If you want a better understanding of Music Theory then this is 100% for you. The structure of the lessons and the content proves that Darryl not only can play the guitar (obviously) but can TEACH it too which is rare. I feel I’m already improving and actually understanding what I’m doing rather than just relying on memory. You get the structure, content, transcripts for every lesson, PDF’s when needed, and can ask questions too. Honestly, it’s been the best purchase in my guitar learning journey so far. If you’re thinking about it, get it! Thanks so much, Darryl.
