World Music Guitar

new genres every month

Reinvent Your Guitar Repertoire

The guitar is one of the world’s most universal instruments, with different regions across the globe putting their unique spin on this 6 stringed wonder. Many guitar players start by learning the G, E-minor, C, and D chords. This progression opens you up to literally thousands of pop and rock hits but it can also limit your understanding of the instrument. The North Indian Hindustani system of music doesn’t even use chords. Nor do traditional Arabic makams. Turkish music separates sounds into groups of notes, but not the ones you are familiar with.

Imagine the freedom to view music from the perspective of an entirely different culture, a world away. Now imagine translating this into your regular guitar style and putting all this information at your fingertips.

Revolutionize the way you approach the guitar and influence your playing for life, with an international journey through sound.
