The Guitar Scale and Chord Progressions class was fantastic! So far, I have enjoyed two extremely rewarding and satisfying classes on the guitar, and look forward to the next class.
A great course which has something to offer to guitar players of all levels and this course really provides a strong foundation to your scales and chord progressions and a lot more.

I play guitar for 15 years and yet I found useful info in this course. Really good for beginners!!!

Does not feel like a higher education course at all. There is very little content or theory, and I don't feel like the teacher talks to me like I'm an adult.
The content "is" useful, but really not enough to justify paying for it... especially with all the resources available online.
Please, MOOCs need higher quality content if we ever want it to be taken seriously.

This course has helped me to learn the scales and major chord patterns (major, minor, diminished &augmented). Thanks a lot to Amanda and the team !!

Loved this course! Great for intermediate guitarists. I'm a self-taught guitarist. I've been playing for ten years, but really needed this course to brush up on somethings that my beginner skills needed to outgrow.

A very good introduction to guitar scales and chord progressions if you are not familiar with those. It is good for beginners or experienced guitar player who want to learn the theory. I hope there will be a more advanced one soon.

Great course if you are coming from the begginers course of the how to play guitar specialization. I'm really pleased with the material and the way Amanda explains things, she is fun and the information comes in bite size videos. I missed some more downloadable theory but if you get the Berklee e-book you will find quite a lot in there.

Guitar Scales and Chord Progressions is encouraging 4-week video-course series with a peer to peer community. The course reminded to use the metronome beats to keep the tempo, to focus on accuracy over speed (to play slow), encouraged to make mistakes. The instruction videos were clear to understand and setting week goals kept motivating to continue. It was nice to read other students comments and analyze self-progress in every week. Most rememberable were arpeggios and 12-bar blues. Also opportunity to study theory along with practice. It´s a great way to pick up the instrument and commit to practice regularly.

This course is great for the beginning guitarist who wants to go further in terms of guitar skill and theory. Get your fingers ready for the exercises especially with the scales as you might need to stretch them more than you are used to. All the hard work will definitely pay off at the end of this great course. Hope you join in and enjoy the course as I did.

This foundational course was so clear and well presented. The confidence I gained in my musicianship is enormously important. I'm so grateful that I found it. Seriously, Amanda Monaco is so smart, and so clear that it was easy for me to feel smart, and to 'get it'. Thank you. so very much.

Great Course, it's a natural progression from, " Guitar for Beginners" class. It keeps the ball rolling, so to speak, piggybacking on everything you learned in the beginner course- taking you to the next level, and starting your foray into playing up the neck. Highly recommend!

This was everything I wanted in a guitar theory course. The instructor was very clear in her presentations. It was also very helpful that she demonstrated her lectures very slowly so they could be easily followed. I have material for many, many months.
by ACHIM S•
I learned a lot in this course specifically I like to emphasize the barre chord experience. In the past I tried to avoid them as much as I could and get away with the open chords.
Also the chord progression fell onto fruitful grounds.
