Classic Rock Patterns

In this course, we'll learn about the rhythms and shapes that define some of Classic Rock's most recognizable keyboard parts. Instead of learning the songs themselves, we'll analyze the rhythms and chord shapes in detail. By the end, you'll be able to take any chord progression and turn it into a classic! Special thanks to Seth Campbell, our in-house Classic Rock aficionado for helping put together these examples.



An understanding of triads & inversions as well as the ability to play simple syncopated rhythms.
