“I’ve always wanted to learn melodic minor, but every lesson I’ve seen is complicated, confusing, and frustrating. Why do they talk about 2 melodic minor scales, which one do I learn, how do I use this scale?! It’s so annoying.”


The biggest problem you face when learning melodic minor (that keeps your playing stuck in a rut and not seeing results) is:


Studying incorrect, boring, or confusing lessons that make melodic minor difficult to learn and play on your guitar.


Sound familiar? Learning melodic minor 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 melodic minor learning experiences?


Reading about melodic minor and becoming more confused the more you read.


Being given a melodic minor fingering system that doesn’t fit your hands or musical needs, causing endless frustration.


Learning how to play melodic minor shapes but never learning how to solo and make actual music with those shapes.


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 melodic minor, making it difficult to learn with boring exercises that produce exactly zero results.


This is 100% not the case with Melodic Minor – The Ultimate Guide.


In this workshop, I walk you step-by-step through my proven learning method guaranteed to teach you authentic melodic minor skills and concepts.


With the Melodic Minor – The Ultimate Guide, you benefit from my over 25 years of guitar experience, so you know exactly what to practice for immediate results.

 

3 Ways Melodic Minor – The Ultimate Guide Transforms Your Playing:


1. Get Rid of Melodic Minor Confusion Forever - Learn why there is only 1 melodic minor scale, not 2, and how modern guitarists use this scale in their solos. No useless theory, everything you learn is immediately applied to your fretboard.

2. Build Your Technique as You Learn Melodic Minor - Not only do you learn how to play and solo with melodic minor, you build your overall technique with these classic scale pattern workouts.

3. Solo with Melodic Minor Immediately - Don’t wait to solo with melodic minor. Learn one shape, learn one scale pattern for chops, and solo over backing tracks immediately in your playing.

Who is this Course For?


This course is designed for guitarists looking to increase your melodic minor skills by learning the exact fingerings, patterns, and soloing concepts pros use on records.


It's for guitarists who:

  • Have tried to learn melodic minor in the past but found it too confusing.
  • What to add a new, essential scale to your vocabulary.
  • Want to level up your soloing and technical chops using melodic minor.
  • Are ready to add a new color to your soloing lines and phrases.
  • Want to learn melodic minor the right way, once and for all.

Who is this Course NOT For?


As your Melodic Minor 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.
