Lately, I’ve been talking about my No Chord Fingerstyle course.
…And how it can teach you how to play beautiful songs WITHOUT the need for any tricky chords or painstaking chord changes.
Well, let me tell you a little secret that is the glue behind this way of playing.
It’s all to do with the key of A.
All three of the arrangements in this course are taught in the key of A.
…Because when it comes to playing fingerstyle in the simplest way possible, the key of A Major is the ONLY key that can allow you to do something cool…
…And it’s all to do with the I-IV-V chords.
In case you don’t know, the I-IV-V chords are the most important in a key (Almost all popular songs use these three chords at various points).
In the key of A, the I-IV-V chords are – A Major, D Major, and E Major.
These chords have ‘root’ notes, which are open bass strings (low E, A, and D strings).
There are no other keys on the guitar that you can say the same for.
So why is this knowledge so powerful?
Simply because it means:
- You can play lovely melodies anywhere on the fretboard.
- You always have access to an open string bass note which will keep the music sounding rich and full.
Simply pluck one of these bass strings, play the melody, and boom…
You now have music that sounds melodic, beautiful, and full of depth.
In other words, playing like this gives you the best of both worlds – a simple melody and easy bass notes that are at your fingertips.
As I said, you cannot do this with any other key on the guitar.
All other keys have root notes on fretted bass strings, which can mean lots of awkward and painful stretching.
The key of A and this new course solves this problem.
Anyway, in the course I’m showing you exactly how this all works.
I’m super excited about this course because these arrangements are ones I never see taught like this.
It’s a really unique way of playing that is perfect for beginners and intermediates alike.
Beginners get the joy of playing real songs without finger-breaking gymnastics.
Intermediates get to enjoy learning classic tunes quickly and without spending weeks sweating learning the parts.
