   Watch Promo

Have you ever wondered what scales are out there other than the major and minor scale. In this course you will learn the second mode of the major scale. The Dorian scale is a fun scale that is very similar to the minor scale so it's easy to learn. If you are ready to explore a new sound then this course is for you. Please read below to see what is in the course.

 

Scales can be really intimidating. This course is designed to make learning the Dorian mode easy and fun.

What will you learn in this course?

  • You will learn where the Dorian scale comes from
  • You will learn the diatonic chords for Dorian so that you can create chord progressions in Dorian
  • You will learn the 5 Dorian scale positions. This will allow you to play the Dorian scale in any key anywhere on the neck
  • You will learn my Dorian pentatonic method. This is a simpler way of looking at the Dorian scale. If you have a good knowledge of the minor pentatonic scale this will make it easy to solo in Dorian.
  • You will get 3 backing tracks in Dorian to solo over. Each backing track follows along with the chords and has the scale and the pentatonic scale all over the neck in the video which makes it easier to solo over.

Christopher Rupp

My name is Chris Rupp and I'm a guitar instructor and founder of GuitArmy. I am currently teaching live Zoom lessons to students all over the world and creating online guitar courses. I'm a Berklee College of Music graduate and have been teaching guitar full time for over 20 years. I have taught more than 35,000 individual guitar lessons and have more than 25,000 students that have taken my online courses.


Chris is hands down the best guitar teacher that I have worked with over the past 20 years of playing. I have been taking Skype lessons with him over the past few months and my playing has progressed tremendously. The secret to Chris' success is that he understands music theory so well that he can help you apply meaningful theory based techniques without overwhelming you with details. However, if details are your thing don't hesitate to drill in deeper with him. Also, Chris goes above and beyond to ensure my time in between lessons will be productive and enjoyable. Finally, and maybe most importantly, Chris is fun to learn with and I don't recall a lesson where we weren't laughing out loud about something. I like Skype Guitar Lessons for the convenience, but GuitArmy and Chris will keep me hooked on the concept for many months to come.

I'm a working professional, and have been taking guitar lessons with Chris for several year now. My understanding of the guitar, and ability to play have improved dramatically ever since I've taken classes with Chris. Chris is extremely knowledgeable about the instrument, and his accessible style of teaching make learning a true pleasure. Chris also works very hard to fit lessons into my schedule - which has been absolutely wonderful. I look forward to continuing my lessons with Chris for many years to come.

Student Testimonial (Beginner Guitar Lessons - 10 Lessons)

Hi Chris, thanks so much for reaching out! I'm about half way through lesson 10 of your Beginner lessons via GuitArmy, so I was researching more of your teaching, and what's next... and found your GuitArmy! I've gotta tell ya, something about your explanations, your method of teaching, and the detailed resources provided, you've connected so many dots for me -- it's appreciated beyond words! I'm mostly self-taught, regret that I started so late in life, and have tried other online resources, but yours has been the most comprehensive! As a corporate facilitator to adult learners myself, I just wanted to express my gratitude!

Melanie

I've always wanted to learn the guitar but I couldn't commit to actually driving to and attending a class every week. Chris makes it so easy and convenient with the Skype lessons. He's a great instructor and I'm learning so quickly! My goal is to learn Hotel California in six months and with GuitArmy, I have no doubt that I will.
