“There are so many major scale shapes and systems out there, I don’t know where to start. And I don’t have hours a day to practice. I wish there was a simple major scale system that I could learn in a week or less!”


The biggest problem you face when learning the major scale (that keeps you spinning your wheels and not experiencing results) is:


Experiencing the paralysis of choice. Where there are so many ways to learn the major scale, that you don’t ever choose one system that works for you.


Sound familiar? Learning the major scale can be a challenging experience, especially if you don’t have an organized, proven method of study to guide you.


Have you had any of these common major scale learning experiences?


You try to learn the major scale but there are so many fingerings out there where do you even start? So you give up.


When soloing over jazz ballads you rely on 8th notes, as you would with faster tempos, but that rhythm sounds boring and predictable at slow tempos.


You find a scale system you like but the exercises are so dull and boring you find yourself falling asleep in the practice room.


Over the past 25 years, I've played over 2500 gigs, taught over 8000 private lessons, and given workshops all over the world to guitarists of all levels.


I’ve found that many online courses and teachers overcomplicate the major scale with difficult and boring exercises that produce zero results in your playing.


This is 100% not the case with the 7 Day Major Scale Challenge.


In this course, I walk you step-by-step through my proven learning method guaranteed to teach you authentic major scale skills.


With the 7 Day Major Scale Challenge, you benefit from my over 25 years of jazz guitar experience, so you know exactly what to practice for immediate results.

 

3 Ways the 7 Day Major Scale Challenge Transforms Your Playing:

How YOU Benefit from Matt’s Teaching Method

This is how Matt's proven teaching method makes you the best guitarist you can be.

 

Who is this Course For?


This course is designed for guitarists looking to increase your major scale skills without having to learn 50 shapes or 12 different systems.


It's for guitarists who:

  • Have tried to learn the major scale and ended up confused and frustrated.
  • Know a few major scale fingerings but don’t have a solid system in place.
  • Want to be able to solo with the major scale in any key all over the neck.
  • Don’t want to spend hours learning scale shapes you never actually use.
  • Want to add the major scale to your solos with confidence and musicality.


I've been studying, teaching, and playing the major scale for 25 years and I have explored every possible fingering system, so you don’t have to.

I want to share with you everything I've learned about how to internalize the major scale quickly so you can reach your musical goals without added stress.

 

Who is this Course NOT For?


As your major scale guide, my job is to keep this course positive, encouraging, and welcoming for EVERY guitarist who joins. That’s why this course isn’t for you if…

  • You’re looking for a “Guitar God quick” fix. There’s no such thing as an overnight guitarist. This program is about building a long-term relationship with the guitar that leads with enjoyment and real growth – not hype or impossible promises.

  • You’re not a team player. This isn’t American Idol for guitar, it’s not a competition. The MWG Community is a safe environment for new and experienced guitarists to support and learn from each other. This is for team players who encourage growth in their fellow guitarists – not trolls who heckle their peers.

  • You’re a negative Nelly. If you like to complain, tear down, or argue with other guitarists just for the sake of it, this program isn’t for you. We’re about encouragement, welcoming new players, and positive, constructive feedback. No negative energy or comments allowed in this program.
