Your scales and arpeggios are your fundamental tools with which you build both solos and songs. Mastering them at the level where they represent zero challenge to you is the foundation of mastery in all other areas.
In this section I will present to you a uniquely new perspective on learning these tools. And you will have a specific measurable, predictable and easy way to get to mastery as fast as possible.
Use the practical and easy training method in the section for just 4 weeks and you will feel a total change in your level of control and freedom when you play. Guaranteed.

9. The Art Of Composing
Once you have all the tools you need to make the craft composing easy and pleasurable, you will want to master the art of composing. This part you can't control, but the greater a master you are at conveing emotions through the music you make, the more you inspire and move yourself. And the more you do that, the more inspired and moved you'll be.
This part of the program is really about impressing yourself so that when you listen to what you have created you will go "I can't take the credit for that. That's too good - and besides I don't know where that melody came from. It just happened in my head"
