All the same great features as unit one
but with lessons that take you to the next level

To understand the lessons in unit two you are recommended to buy unit one first.
However if you are not a unit one owner they can be bought together to save money.

This unit is made up of 48 guitar lessons, however in this unit the lessons are broken down into two sets of 6 months. The reason for doing this is to make the course more easy to follow and allowing the student to follow a more specialized route through the course. The 2 six month periods are 'Plectrum Style' and 'Finger Picking Style'.

The Second unit contains;

12+ printable e-books
all the guitar lessons, tunes and exercises in PDF format, plus a theory PDF of all the theory so far.
interactive guitar lessons
with lessons and exercises on your CD
. This time all the important exercises be clicked to hear how the guitar should sound.
backing tracks
play along with or help you with tunes you don't know

video guitar lesson
In this unit there are two videos. One video covers plectrum style issues and the other covers fingerpicking issues.

a new metronome
this metronome covers speeds from 40 to 220 bpm, and double time clicks for speeding up exercises.
a guitar tuner
so you can develop an ear for the guitar
a backing player
so can listen to the backing directly from the program
chord and scale charts
In this unit the chord and scale chart don't have sound, because the student should be at a level where it is no longer necessary.
*** NEW - the Fret Guide
the ultimate guide to the neck.

Guitars and accessories

The Guitars menu is a guide to guitar parts. In order to provide a complete guide we have used a spectrum of guitars, a classical, a folk, an electro-acoustic, a semi-acoustic, and a solid electric guitar.

A more detailed description of the job of the various parts of a guitar is also given, and a guide to the special effects, amplifiers, strings and plectrums.

guitar chord charts

Interactive chord chart

The interactive chord chart and scale charts in this unit go into far greater depth than charts in Unit one. They also contain more chords and scales than you will need for this unit. However by the time you have completed this unit your independence as a guitarist should be at a level where you are teaching yourself new tunes and techniques.

The chord and scale charts contain

First positions barre chords
Second position barre chords
Open chords
all the blues scales you need
all the modal scales you need.

Professional lessons

The best thing about the GCH Guitar Academy guitar course is that the guitar lessons have been developed over more than fifteen years, with guitar students. If you have studied unit one then you will be aware of the quality of the course anyway.

Many courses available on the internet are simply collections of information and tunes with no structure, or guitar players trying to share their knowledge with no teaching experience.

In this unit the course is not only broken down into weeks and months, but also two 6 month sections. This is so you can study plectrum and fingerpicking style in more depth to give you a complete understanding of the guitar.

If you learn to play the guitar properly, you will never need a chord chart and new tunes will be easier to learn.

The neck guide

The neck guide contains a chord guide and an interactive guide to the neck. Simply select the key you want to play in and the scales (modes or blues), and the neck guide displays all the possible scales you can use. This is ideal for guitarists who want to improvise in various keys.

The neck guide is provided as a stand alone application which also contains all the scale charts and the chord chart. This is an invaluable reference source, if you are intending to experiment with improvisation and song writing in different keys and positions around the neck.

Printable PDF e-books

Because many of the lessons are more detailed and will take more time for you to study and practice to get perfect, the PDF e-books in this unit are even more essential than in unit one. You can print them out on any A4 printer and study them in your own time with or away from your computer.

The e-books reflect the contents of the CD-ROM, but with greater detail.

There are 14 e-books with this unit, one for each month of lessons and an extra e-book dedicated to theory. As well as these e-books is an e-book of printable blank templates of tablature and chord charts for you to fill in as you need them.
