Designed to motivate and inspire students, Guitar Sherpa's innovative learning systems employ a hands-on, contextual format. Students "play" their way through Guitar Sherpa curriculum rather than working through tedious examples and exercises.
Frank Vignola is one of the most multi-dimensional artists in the industry. A monster player and composer, Frank's work with everyone from Les Paul to Donald Fagen make him the perfect guide for this intensive exploration of chord inversions.
Inversion Excursion will exponentially increase your chord, comping and rhythm pattern vocabulary. Instead of simply memorizing chord forms from a book, Inversion Excursion teaches you how to unleash chorus after chorus of fresh ideas by giving you a grip on the chord forms and then illustrating how to apply them in a musical context.
You'll learn how to instantly pull out an endless variety of interesting voicings and rhythms to keep both the soloist and the audience engaged and motivated. You'll learn hundreds of inversions up and down the neck, across all string groups, in all keys.
In this first volume, you'll work through major chord inversions using video demonstrations and extensive charts (over 500 pages!) that illustrate root, first inversion, second inversion and third inversion forms.
Unlike your typical chord book, you'll play your way through the course within a musical context and learn how to apply the inversions with rhythmic ideas in virtually any style of music.
Over the course of your Inversion Excursion journey you'll develop a massive vocabulary of chords, patterns and applications that you can pull out when comping, arranging, composing and improvising. In short, you'll NEVER find yourself struggling to come up with something fresh and appropriate, if not downright dazzling. Hands-On Learning Tools included with Inversion Excursion: Text Lesson Guide, Chord Charts, Practice Rhythm Tracks, Bonus Material. Secure PIN enclosed in DVD package for quick and secure download of learning tools.
