Learning Alice In Chains songs on your guitar is not just about size or shape of your guitar. It’s to do with the way it feels when you tuck it close to your body, about the way the strings respond to the way you touch them, even the way it smells … Think of it more like a first date!

Even wondered how experienced guitarists seem to navigate their way through even the most difficult chord changes?
What they are playing does not seem to be physically difficult; in many cases the shapes look strangely familiar.
So what's the deal?
How do they know how to play all these complex chords?
- and how do they do it with ease?
The BIG secret is "plurality".
Now, I bet you weren't expecting that!
What the heck is plurality - it sounds like something you'd go to the doctor for treatment.
A "plurality" means a multiple functions.
Here's an example using the note "C", if we consider the many double functions that note could have in the various major scales.
Of course this is only just the tick of the musical iceberg.
If we extended our C chord one more step to create CMaj9 we would have many more possibilities.
CMaj9 = C-E-G-B-D
Can you see them?
CMaj9 = C-[E-G-B]-D
E minor = E-G-B
and G major G-B-D
CMaj9 = C-E-[G-B-D]
Again the same concept could apply as before the you could play G major chord over a C major background to create a C Maj9th harmony
You could also move between an E minor or G major chord /arpeggio to create a feeling of movement on a static C major vamp.
You know if that chemistry’s right … and I’ve never yet met another guitar teacher who’ll tell you how to pick the right guitar the way I show you.
Now, I’m sure you’ll agree, that’s not starting in the middle, is it? That’s starting at the start! From there, you’re not just playing tunes … you’re building a relationship with your instrument.

When you use the Guru software, you download a session of your favorite song. The Guru software then displays the tablature right on your screen and plays the notes along with you through the sound on your computer. It's simply amazing. The Guru software is free and the sessions cost between $7 and $10. Well worth it. Imagine downloading your favorite tunes and having an instructor right in front of you exactly at the moment you're motivated to learn the song. It's truly amazing.
