Great sounding guitar parts don't happen all on their own. There's a lot of musical techniques that you can deploy to ensure that the parts all work together and sound their best. That's what this course is all about!
Guitars are one of the most overdubbed, multi-layered instruments in pop/rock music productions. Just "winging it" often results in muddy tracks that could often sound a whole lot better. This course explains how guitar parts/tracks work together -in a musical way- resulting in tracks that are clear, powerful and unified.
You first learn about pulsing parts and how to interlock and layer them so that they appear to work as a solid sonic unit. Next is power chords and techniques you can use to best create that wall of distortion. Then there's rock and funk where Gregg explains melodic grooves and how they best work together. And then there's sustained lines, harmonics, coloring effects, acoustic layering techniques and much, much more.
So, whether you're into pop, rock, funk, indie, acid, metal, prog or folk, the techniques that guitarist Gregg Fine covers in this course will take you to guitar production heaven!
Great insights. It would be great to be able to download the session, so we could play around with the tracks.

Great video Gregg! Thanks. Would love to watch more other tutorials in regards of arranging. Eg Pop Piano Arranging etc.

This course was great. I came here with the intention of learning more about my DAW, and I did, but I also learned a lot about musical theory. Thanks Gregg and everyone else at MPV. Keep it up.

Fantastic Tutorial, well narrated, and very helpful. As a producer and guitarist who is looking to create some hybrid genre music, this course has given me a lot of inspiration. Hope to see more like this, and perhaps something on bass lines as well. Thanks MPV for all your tutorials.

I have watched your series music theory. the most valuable, priceless theory that you had simplified it.
I studied Theory of Music in school, but you have packed every thing in all your courses perfectly.
and Now the Guitar and Pop Arranging. Outstanding Gregg. I hope you have more courses for us.
