I learned the pentatonic scale, but now I'm supposed to learn Locrian, Lydian, and other funny-sounding scales. Why can't I just use the pentatonic scale in my solos? It's so frustrating!


This is why you're stuck and not seeing results:


You're spending tons of time trying to master the pentatonic scale, only to be told to scrap the scale and learn modes and arpeggios instead.


Sound familiar?

Learning lead guitar 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 lead guitar experiences?

  1. You learn your pentatonic scale, and love to use it in your solos, but feel peer pressure to learn modes, arpeggios, and other devices.
  2. You’ve checked out the pentatonic scale, and found it useful in your solos, but haven’t explored every possibility with this essential scale.
  3. You hear legendary players creating awesome solos with the pentatonic scale, but when you’re stuck in a rut playing the same boring licks in every solo.


Over the past 25 years, I've played over 2,500 gigs, taught over 8,000 private lessons, and given workshops all over the world to guitarists of all levels.


I’ve found that most online lessons and teachers overcomplicate lead guitar, making lead guitar difficult to learn with discouraging exercises that lead nowhere.


This is 100% not the case with Creative Pentatonics.


In this course, I walk you step-by-step through proven methods guaranteed to teach you authentic lead guitar with pentatonics.


With Creative Pentatonics, you benefit from my 25+ years of teaching and performing experience, so you know exactly what to practice for immediate results.

His lessons are concise and to the point! I wish that his lessons were available to me when I was learning how to improvise!"

Who is this Course For?


This course is designed for guitarists looking to increase your soloing skills without having to learn complicated modes, arpeggios, or concepts.


It's for guitarists who:

  • Have learned the pentatonic scale but not exploited it fully.
  • Played the pentatonic scale a few times then moved on.
  • Have "moved on" to modes and arpeggios, but your solos are falling flat.
  • Want to solo over every chord you see with one scale.
  • Want to make soloing much easier than it seems.
  • Use the pentatonic scale like your favorite, legendary guitarist.


I’ve been studying, teaching, and laying the pentatonic scale for 25 years and I still find new ways to play and apply this magical scale.


I want to share with you everything I’ve learned about how to build creative and engaging solos using only the pentatonic scale and its variations.

 

Who is this Course NOT For?


As your Creative Penatonics 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.
