Guitarists, Songwriters, Learn How To Make Melodies With Chords

Thomas Lorenzo innovates in Contemporary Guitar Music Education with his Pivoting Techniques method and online course.

Why does this course matter? The Pivoting Techniques

It is the only online guitar course available that delivers an effective way of learning how to accompany vocals with chords and create melodies with them on the go.

The only online guitar course available that focuses what goes on behind the vocals and makes you play the guitars with an orchestral approach.

How did this course come to life?

This course came to life when I decided to put out there a guitar method that would deliver to the general public what I have been doing over the last 40 years to help bands and songwriters sound better. This includes my years of guiding Liverpool bands in the art of beatles songwriting and success stories of some of my students as Kim Manning that performs with George Clkinton and Parliament Funk.

Bands do not really care about the name of a chord, they need practical solutions to problems like when you take a new song to the band and all the accompaniment sounds like just one muddy wall of sound, where you cannot hear what you play, and need to crank up.

This guitar course will help songwriters and guitarists solve these issues and many more with structured guitar lessons.

My contemporary guitar lessons and learning methods bridge the gap between theory and craft. You learn how to apply creatively a new musical tool because you are able to understand the when, feel the why, and consequently compose reflecting upon your mature emotional intelligence. In all my online guitar courses you will work hard to understand (feel), practice and create to achieve your desired goal of composing your song with your unique message.

I invite you to join our creative guitar community and share with us all your love of music, your unique story and sound. Join a community that loves to transform emotions into professional musical stories without the constraints of social tendencies.
