Which module should I go through?

Hi fellow Breakthrough Guitarists,

My big question is: which BTG course should I go through? According to the roadmap, I'm in the learner stage. I can play a few licks that kinda sound okay. But what BTG course will help me right now? Which one will help me move my fingers faster, hit clean notes, and prevent muting any strings? Ultimate Guitar Grid Mastery and Guitar Grid 101 look somewhat helpful. (What's the difference between the two? Both of them appear to start with the same video.) I heard Jonathan talking about ear training, so maybe How to Learn and Play Anything by Ear? Perfect Practice Principles seems helpful. Or maybe Unlimited Dexterity? Also, should I do one at a time, or can I go through multiple modules at once?

Thanks,

~Nick

Hi Nick!

I personally started with Guitar Grid 101 (last may). It is some sort of a "sample course" or a starter course with BTG, it contains parts of the other courses like Ultimate Guitar Grid Mastery (pattern 1) or Unlimited dexterity for example.

For lead guitar, my suggestion for you would be to start with Ultimate Grid Mastery and Unlimited Dexterity. I would put a lot of emphasis on the finger exercises contained in Unlimited Dexterity and would start slowly Ultimate Grid Mastery. Doing the finger exercises almost every day will make you more at ease on the fretboard ( stretch better, mute less, etc) and it will allow you to progress faster in the main course. Perfect Fretboard Vision, No nonsense notes and Phrasing 101 are good complementary courses that you can start while doing Ultimate Grid Mastery (it helps when you work the patterns over Backing Tracks). I completed Ultimate Grid Mastery and then went to Pentatonic Fluency keeping the other courses as complements.

For rythm guitar, it depends on where you are with the open chords and barre chords....I enjoyed the Know Instantly the Right Chords course.

Hope it helps you! Other people might have good advice too.

Enjoy 🎸

@Yves Cadieux Terrific advice!

@Nick Costello I would recommend that you first jump into Guitar Grid 101. Complete that course and, when you're finished, start Guitar Grid Mastery. I think those two courses alone are going to truly help you. Once you've finished those two courses, we'd love to see you post in the Breakthroughs section with the Breakthroughs that come from them. And then I think that would be the time to really debate what course you want to jump in next.

I look forward to hearing about your results!

Hey @Austin,

I've been really busy with school, and haven't had much time to practice. Right now, I'm in module 4 of Ultimate Guitar Grid Mastery. I attached my first solo using major scale pattern 1 in G major to this text. I have it here because I wouldn't really consider this a breakthrough and don't know where else to put it.

I'd love to hear your thoughts about it, and what I can do to improve.

Hi Nick I agree grid 101 is the foundation. After that I'd recommend grid mastery too. Then U've enough basic knowledge to path out direction you want to take.

Ur choice but I did pentatonics modules Reason is major & minor pat'ns  r easy to use transferable to diff't key notes. A lot of nice music (blues) can be played i Am for example. u'll see urself progress:g.  If you look at my posts, see I've circulated patt'n sheets a few times. Google house of blues & Eric's 1968 stock riffs. Get you inspired. But guitar's so much learning we're all finding new stuff & ideas all the time.  Cheers now hope this helps.
