Today we’re excited to launch our new Master Class with Ashton Sellars, Advanced Neo Soul Guitar.
In this Master Class, you’ll learn how to map out your fretboard using a systematic, triad-based approach. You’ll also learn Ashton’s signature hybrid picking technique and add new neo soul licks, songs, and solos to your musical vocabulary.
3 little notes – why are triads so important?
While seemingly simple, the humble triad has the power to unlock your entire fretboard. This is true across all styles of music, not just neo soul or jazz.
Ashton’s approach to triads in Part I. of this Master Class is highly methodical and serves as the foundation for his signature sound. We strongly recommend that you spend regular practice time on these concepts as we’ll build on them throughout the class.
Technical and advanced lessons. Easily-digestible exercises.
While the lessons in this class are advanced, the exercises themselves are simple. This means you don’t need to be an experienced player to benefit from this class.
Here’s what you’ll learn:
– How to unlock your fretboard with triads
– Hybrid picking
– 10 advanced neo soul licks
– Solos and SongSquads to challenge you
Ashton is a London-based musician known for his mastery of neo soul. Originally from Wellington, New Zealand, Ashton has studied with some of the world’s greatest guitarists in New Zealand and Amsterdam.
