Personal Guitar Training with Mark Fitchett

Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Bass, Composition, Improvisation, Songwriting

Beyond the basics many musicians feel that they aren't progressing fast enough in their knowledge and playing abilities; or that what they've learned seems scattered and unrelated. I can create a custom program designed to fill in the gaps.

My instruction covers blues, rock and jazz improvisation, performance skills, and practical music theory.

Areas of study include improvisational techniques, scales beyond the basic major and minor, phrasing, chord progressions, progressive scale techniques, arpeggios, intervals, advanced chord construction, rhythm, scale and chord theory, definitions, transposition and musical styles.
