More about this course

If you are a beginner or intermediate guitar player who knows how to play open chords but hasn't learned to play barre chords this class is for you. Playing and understanding barre chords is going to open up endless possibilities for songs. You won't just be stuck down at the end of the neck playing open chords. You'll be able to play major, minor, and dominant 7th chords all over the neck. 

I took a lot of time putting this course together for you. There are guitar neck charts all through the course videos that show you what I'm playing on the guitar. I think the charts will really help you learn the chords a lot faster and make the course easier to follow.  

I designed the class so that you learn something new. Then you have an exercise with that new item. Then you take a quiz on that material. I put the course together this way so it would be very interactive. You'll spend most of your time playing in this course instead of just listening to me talk. 

Barre chords are a simple concept that are tough to master. This course will help you learn your main barre chords that will help you be able to play millions of songs.   

What will you learn in this lesson?

  • Notes on your 5th and 6th string
  • Major, minor, and dominant 7th chords on the 6th string
  • Major, minor, and dominant 7th chords on the 5th string
  • You will play many exercises with the chords that you learn
  • There are many quizzes in this course on the material 

Why should you sign up for my lesson?

  • My name is Chris Rupp and I'm the founder of the GuitArmy.
  • I've been teaching guitar full time for over 20 years.
  • I have taught more than 35,000 individual private guitar lessons.
  • I teach guitar students online all over the world.
  • I have a bachelors of music degree from the world renowned Berklee College of Music where I studied with some of the best guitar players on earth. 
  • I created a successful line of guitar instruction DVDs that sold very well and garnered the attention of the "As Seen on TV" folks.
  • I love teaching guitar and helping students become better musicians through the guitar.
  • I will answer your personal questions and help you with learning the material in this lesson.

With GuitArmy guitar lessons on Arbington you will learn: basic open chords, power chords, barre chords, scales, major scales, minor scales, learn to solo, improvisation, beginner guitar lessons, intermediate guitar lessons, advanced guitar lessons, guitar riffs, rock licks, guitar licks, rhythm guitar, songwriting, modes on guitar, how to read guitar tablature, play a guitar solo, triads for guitar, and much more. 

Why should I take your class and not just learn from YouTube?

You can try to learn guitar from YouTube but eventually you'll figure out there's so many videos out there it is very hard to put the information together in a coherent way. I have students come to me all the time that are tired of watching random guitar videos on YouTube and don't know how to put the information together. I have a whole series of courses here on Arbington that will help you get down the basic skills for guitar. You will learn everything from one teacher and not random people on YouTube. I think you will find it to be a much better learning experience.
