Supersize your chord knowledge
Learn 96 Essential Chords. From A to G#m7.
So, you're learning an amazing new song…
...and you come across a chord like Bb7 or F#m7.
Maybe you simply have no idea how to play this jumble of letters and numbers.
Or maybe it vaguely rings a bell: didn’t you look up that chord a while ago?
Either way, you need to look up the chord. (Again.)
This might happen to you a lot. You keep getting small pieces of the fret board puzzle: a few chord shapes here and some chord names there.
But because you never really see the big picture, it's hard to understand how everything fits together and to make things stick.
The truth is, it's not super difficult to know a lot of chords and to play them all over the neck.
You just need a structured guide to learning all these positions, chord shapes and chord names.
That’s why I created this course.
Build your chord knowledge from scratch or fill in the gaps.
Chances are, your knowledge of the fretboard is like a patchwork of bits and pieces you've picked up over time.
Some positions, note names, chord shapes, fingerings...
This course will help you to take all of that and turn it into a rock solid foundation for playing chords and navigating the fretboard.
It will reinforce what you already know and fill in any gaps in your knowledge. We'll start with the basics and build your knowledge from there, bit by bit.
Don’t worry, I won’t just throw a bunch of chord shapes at you. Instead, I’ll show you easy ways to remember all the shapes and how they relate to each other. You'll learn how many chord shapes are just a simple variation of the same thing.
But really, the explanations are just 10% of the course.
The other 90% is all about putting everything you learn into practice. You'll be playing your guitar throughout the course to make sure you truly understand everything and can use it quickly and confidently. You'll ingrain all the information on a deep level, to the point you no longer have to think about it.
In short, I want to make sure you remember everything and know how to use it. I explain more about how the course works in the introduction lesson!
Of course, it would be no fun to learn all of this and never try out your new skills. It would be like discovering you're superman and taking the bus to school or work, instead of flying... So throughout the course, you'll test-drive what you've learned in 23 songs.
You'll play both practice songs, created especially for this course, as well as 'real' songs by artists like John Mayer, Nirvana, the Black Keys and Amy Winehouse.
Summing up, you'll learn the 96 most important chords by heart, which will allow you to:
- Learn new songs much faster
- Immediately play a song a band mate brings to rehearsal
- Communicate with other musicians more easily
- Write down the chords to (your own) songs
To get down to the nitty gritty details, you'll:
- Learn to play the 8 most important chord types
- Memorise all the notes on the E string, so you can play these chord types in all keys
- Learn to read chord names and play the right chord immediately

Frequently Asked Questions
Which chords will I learn exactly?
You’ll learn 96 chords in total. All these chord types in all twelve keys:
- Major Seventh
- Minor Seventh
- And of course the almighty power chord
What format is the course in?
The course consists of 31 animated videos. I made sure that you can keep track of where you are automatically, so you can jump in wherever you left off. There’s even a fancy percentage bar.
What if I don’t like the course?
Simple: if you decide Guitar Chord Bootcamp: Bar and Beyond is not for you, you’ll get a full refund within 30 days. No matter the reason.
I'm a complete beginner, is this course for me?
If you're a beginner, a great place to start is Guitar Chord Bootcamp: Open Chords! For this course, it's best that you have at least a little experience playing barre chords, because you'll be playing a lot of them! If your barre chords don't sound perfect, that's completely fine of course.
How long does it take to complete the course?
It seems 3 to 5 hours is pretty typical. Your mileage may vary of course. Some people like to play some songs multiple times, whereas others like to blast through. For the best results, spread out the lessons over a few days.
What secrets will I learn in the course?
None. This isn’t some secret, magical way to learn chords or read chords and chord progressions. It’s just a carefully structured way to go about it with clear, easy to understand explanations. This makes the process take a few hours instead of months or even years. Also, it'll be fun!
Do I need to be able to read music or know music theory?
Nope, you'll learn everything you need to know as you go along.
Can I take this course on my tablet or phone?
Definitely. I’ve designed the course to look good on desktop, tablet and mobile! You can login to the site on any device you own, so you can switch between devices and continue the course whenever and wherever suits you.
