  • Break out of scale-shaped boxes
  • Fluently solo across your entire fretboard
How it works

Your guided learning pathway

In this 3-month Learning Pathway, Dr. Molly Miller will guide you toward fretboard freedom.

C and A shapes

In Grade 1, we'll guide you through the fundamentals of the CAGED system and get you making music right away within two CAGED shapes.

Grade 1 consists of seven gradually-paced days. The lessons are suitable for beginners and anyone new to the CAGED system.

G, E, and D shapes

In Grade 2, you'll complete your CAGED foundation by learning how to visualize and solo within the remaining three shapes of the CAGED cycle.

Throughout seven days of lessons, you'll work on soloing while connecting your fretboard and locking in a visual map that'll serve you for the rest of your guitar-playing days.

Changing Keys

The magic of the CAGED system is that, once you learn it, you can shift it around your neck to solo in any key.

This grade is all about making sure you can make full use of your fretboard and fluidly connect CAGED shapes with the pentatonic scale.

Grade 4. Major Scale

Once you’ve got all the shapes of the CAGED system down, we'll introduce you to the final piece of the puzzle that’ll unlock worlds of soloing: the major scale.

Grade 5. Making Music With CAGED

All the CAGED knowledge in the world won't do you any good if you can't make your lines sing. This grade is all about breathing life into your riffs via expressive techniques and creative strategies for soloing.

Grade 6. Intro to Major Triads

Three little notes and a whole lot of power. Major triads are the next step in your CAGED journey. They'll make you a more compelling soloist and will refine your rhythm playing in a big way.

Curriculum

Stay focused with this step-by-step learning program designed by our expert team of music educators.

3-month plan

Grade 1. C and A Shapes

Start mapping out your fretboard by learning the fundamentals of the CAGED system.

Day 1. Get to know CAGED

Your goal today is to understand what the CAGED system is all about and test out some of its shapes.

Day 2. C Shape

Once you’re familiar with the CAGED system as a whole, you’ll start building your foundation, brick by brick.

In Day 2, we’re shining a spotlight on the C shape with a four-step process to get from chord shapes to the pentatonic scale.

Day 3. A shape

Here, we set our sights on the A shape (you probably already know this one). We’ll use the same four-step process as in Day 2: Strum the shape, find the root notes, learn the chord tones, and practice the major pentatonic scale.

Day 4. Connecting C and A – Chord tones

Developing an innate sense of chord tones within your CAGED shapes is crucial. Chord tones are anchors for visualization. They’ll make it easy to fill in the gaps to create the pentatonic and major scales. These tones are prime for targeting when soloing. Today, you’ll work on connecting chord tones across your C and A shapes.

Day 5. Connecting C and A – Pentatonic

Now that we have a clear map of chord tones in our C and A shapes, we’ll focus on finding musical ways to connect them in the key of D. Today is all about visualizing  shapes, meditating on connection points, and doing what feels natural.

Day 6. Connecting C and A in a new key

The true magic of CAGED is that works in any key. This lesson is a fun one because you’ll see how you can shift your newfound CAGED knowledge around your fretboard. Today, we’re moving to the key of F major.

Day 7. Grade 1 workout

Recap what you learned and put your skills to the test with a guided workout.

Performance pieces

Choose a song to learn that takes what you worked on in Grade 1 and puts it in a musical context. Here, you'll get to jam with a live-recorded band of pro-LA musicians as your backing track.

Personalized feedback

Submit a video of yourself playing a performance piece from this grade for custom video feedback on your playing from our team of pro guitarists.

Final quiz

Make sure you're ready to move on to Grade 2.

Grade 2. G, E, and D Shapes

Complete your foundation by visualizing and soloing within three remaining CAGED shapes.

Day 1. G shape

Today, we’ll head into uncharted CAGED territory by exploring the G shape – so much soloing happens here. This is an important one to know.

Day 2. E shape

Here, we continue into the unknown by exploring the E shape. Two full octaves are available in this shape. Locate them first, add in your chord tones, and build out the pentatonic. It’s all there for you.

Day 3. Connecting G and E shapes

It’s time to unite and utilize the G and E shapes. This particular union of shapes is an important one. Honing in on connecting them will deepen your fretboard visualization and help add movement to your melodies.

Day 4. D shape

Today, you’ll analyze the final shape in the CAGED system: the D shape. The D shape is a vital part of the tissue connecting the E and C shapes together. The D shape's 4th-string root and shifting requirements make it unique compared to other ones.

Day 5. Connecting E and D shapes

Let’s keep this CAGED train rolling. Today, you’ll focus on seamlessly connecting the E and D shapes. There’s a lot of versatility in the way these two shapes connect. Both the upper and lower strings have regions for you to focus on, move around in, and build licks from.

Day 6. Connecting all shapes

Now that you have each individual CAGED shape under your fingers, we’ll work on connecting the entire CAGED cycle. As you work through today’s exercises, we'll remind you to mind your roots. They’re not flashy, but they’re crucial anchor points for visualization.

Day 7. Grade 2 workout

Recap what you learned and put your skills to the test with a guided workout.

Performance pieces

Choose a song to learn that takes what you worked on in Grade 2 and puts it in a musical context. Here, you'll get to jam with a live-recorded band of pro-LA musicians as your backing track.

Personalized feedback

Submit a video of yourself playing a performance piece from this grade for custom video feedback on your playing from our team of pro guitarists.

Final quiz

Make sure you're ready to move on to Grade 3.

Grade 3. Changing Keys

This grade is all about getting fluent and confident with the CAGED system in different keys. Molly will also teach you licks that highlight the “sweet spots” of each shape.

Day 1. C and A shapes ( 🔑 of F)

Today, we’ll take the C and A shape on an adventure to the key of F. We'll ask you to focus on where the root note F is on the fretboard here – it's your anchor point to visualize the shapes in this new key.

Day 2. A and G shapes ( 🔑 of F)

Here, you’ll get comfy in the A and G shapes in the key of F. The G shape is the first shape many people learn. For some, it’s also the last (not you though, fretboard explorer!) The G shape in combination with the A shape is double-stop heaven. Jimi Hendrix, John Mayer, and many others defined their sounds within these moneymaker positions.

Day 3. G and E shapes ( 🔑 of A)

In Day 3, we move to the key of A. Think of changing to a new key as moving to a new town. First, you need to know how to get to your new home (roots.) Then, learn where your essential destinations are (chord tones.) Once you get those down, you can explore the pentatonic streets in your new hood so you can connect your map with ease.

Day 4. The E, D, and C zone ( 🔑 of A)

New day, new CAGED zone. Here, you'll continue working on solidifying your CAGED knowledge, internalizing the order of the system by working up and down the neck, and expanding your ability to access sounds across your entire fretboard.

Day 5. I to IV ( 🔑 of G)

Eventually, one of the things you’ll be able to do thanks to the CAGED system is improvising a solo over any chord progression. In Day 4, we’ll take the first step toward that goal. You’ll learn how to choose the shapes that fit the sound you’re going for best and how to switch from one pentatonic scale to another.

Day 6. Dock of the Bay – I III7 IV II

Today, you'll tackle an iconic chord progression that has four major chords. As you'll soon find out – they don't all fit in a neat little box for blanket soloing.

Day 7. Grade 3 workout

Recap what you learned and put your skills to the test with a guided workout.

Performance pieces

Choose a song to learn that takes what you worked on in Grade 3 and puts it in a musical context. Here, you'll get to jam with a live-recorded band of pro-LA musicians as your backing track.

Personalized feedback

Submit a video of yourself playing a performance piece from this grade for custom video feedback on your playing from our team of pro guitarists.

Final quiz

Make sure you're ready to move on to Grade 4.

Grades 4-6

Apply CAGED to the major scale, learn how to make your lines sing, and dive into the world of major triads.

Grade 4. Major Scale

In this grade, you’ll learn the major scale like the back of your hand to unlock a new world of soloing

Day 1. C shape – D major scale

This lesson will help you find the major scale with the C shape as your guide. Of all the great scales that you’ll learn on your guitar journey, none are more important than the major scale.

Every proficient guitarist becomes fluent with this crucial scale in their journey. It forms the basis for all of the chords, arpeggios, intervals, and soloing material that you’ll hear in most songs.

Day 2. A shape – D major scale

Today, you’ll extend your knowledge of the major scale by taking it a step further with the A shape.

Day 3. G shape – D major scale

Practice the major scale within the G CAGED shape, then apply it in an improvisational context.

Day 4. E shape – D major scale

Practice the major scale within the E CAGED shape, then apply it in an improvisational context.

Day 5. D shape – D major scale

Practice the major scale within the D CAGED shape, then apply it in an improvisational context.

Day 6. Connecting shapes

Now that you’ve learned each of the major scale patterns individually, we’ll work on connecting them. It’s a crucial skill for guitarists to be able to connect each of the major scale shapes. This is a massive step toward fretboard freedom.

Day 7. Grade 4 workout

Recap what you learned and put your skills to the test with a guided workout.

Performance pieces

Choose a song to learn that takes what you worked on in Grade 4 and puts it in a musical context. Here, you'll get to jam with a live-recorded band of pro-LA musicians as your backing track.

Personalized feedback

Submit a video of yourself playing a performance piece from this grade for custom video feedback on your playing from our team of pro guitarists.

Final quiz

Make sure you're ready to move on to Grade 5.

Grade 5. Making Music With CAGED

All the CAGED mastery in the world ain't worth a hoot if you can't make your guitar sing. In this grade, we're getting musical.

Day 1. Major scale on one string – E and B strings

Take a lap around your E and B strings to lock in your major scale. Learning your scales across one string is a great way to reach fretboard fluency and access some melodically-pleasing ascending and descending ideas.

Day 2. Major scale on one string – G and D strings

Hello... Is it D you’re looking for? This lesson is about continuing your hard work from Day 1 by mapping out the D major scale on the G and D strings with an extra twist included!

Day 3. 3rds

Now that you can play the major scale across four strings, you’re ready for the next level in your major-scale quest. In this lesson, you’ll look at playing the major scale in 3rds. This will require a strong knowledge of the major scale on the E, B, G, and D strings.

Day 4. 6ths

New day, new interval. In this lesson, Molly will break down the major scale in 6ths, which you can use to beef up your lead lines and become a more sophisticated rhythm guitarist.

Day 5. Blanket soloing in C major

In this lesson, we’re switching over to C major (with a C to F progression). Use your shapes to anchor you in this new key. This lesson is all about blanket soloing. You'll let it rip by channelling the full extent of your CAGED map, vertically and horizontally. You'll use your ear to guide you without worrying too much about chord tones.

Day 6. “Playing the changes” Ima7 to bVIma7

Today is a big one. You’re getting non-diatonic and taking a step toward playing the changes like a true jazz musician.

Today’s progression is Emaj7 to Cmaj7, which means we’ll take a micro-soloing approach and draw on two different key centers.

Day 7. Grade 5 workout

Recap what you learned and put your skills to the test with a guided workout.

Performance pieces

Choose a song to learn that takes what you worked on in Grade 5 and puts it in a musical context. Here, you'll get to jam with a live-recorded band of pro-LA musicians as your backing track.

Final quiz

Make sure you're ready to move on to Grade 6.

Grade 6. Intro to Major Triads

This grade is all about major triads and specifically playing and visualizing them within the CAGED shapes that you’ve put so much work into.

Day 1. 1st string set

It’s the first day of practicing the art of restraint. Triads are beautiful creatures when you want to outline a chord but keep your footprint small. They can also help make your soloing much more musical.

Day 2. 2nd string set

Today, you’ll learn the triad shapes on the 2nd string set: on the B, G, and D strings. These triad shapes are continuations of the triad shapes on the 1st string set. You’re essentially taking the highest note and dropping it to the lowest string of the set.

Day 3. 3rd string set

Today, we'll move of the triad shapes you'll have already learned to another CAGED shape.

Day 4. 4th string set

Today’s triad shapes look the same as the ones from Day 3 when you covered the 3rd string set. You’re just playing them in a different shape. Easy peasy!

Day 5. Triads in G

The best way to make sure you're internalizing material is to move it to a new key, and that's exactly what we'll do in Day 5.

Day 6. I to IV – Upper string sets

Today, you'll use triads to improvise over two chords and outline each chord with chord tones which will bring out their distinctive characters. You'll also find points where you can seamlessly connect the two chords so that your melody can flow freely.

Day 7. Grade 6 workout

Recap what you learned and put your skills to the test with a guided workout.

Performance pieces

Choose a song to learn that takes what you worked on in Grade 6 and puts it in a musical context. Here, you'll get to jam with a live-recorded band of pro-LA musicians as your backing track.

Personalized feedback

Frequently Asked Questions

If your questions aren’t answered below, please chat with us.

Is Pickup Music right for me?

Are you a guitar player who feels like you haven’t made progress in a few months… years… or even decades? 

You’re probably stuck in what’s called the ‘intermediate plateau’. This is very common and can be very frustrating.

What’s the cause? Well, it’s pretty easy to learn the basics on guitar. Learn a few open chords and you can play Wonderwall and hundreds of other songs. Learn a couple of scales and a few licks and you can play some lead. 

But what then? Triads? Modes? Arpeggios? The phrygian scale?!

Without a clear plan and learning system you fall back to playing the same old chords and licks over and over again. Or you bounce around free lessons online but nothing seems to stick. It’s a recipe for a lot of practice without much progress. 

That’s where Pickup Music can help. We specialize in taking players stuck in a guitar rut and turning them into advanced guitarists.

We do this through Learning Pathways that take you on a step-by-step journey towards fretboard mastery. We give you a highly structured system that shows you exactly what to work on each week to make serious progress. 

These Learning Pathways take the guesswork out of your practice routine. You are guided through a proven grade-by-grade system with daily lessons, play-along practice exercises and interactive workouts. 

But it’s not all about theory. We apply everything you learn to real music. That’s why every grade of our Learning Pathways build up to performing a song with a live backing band. This simulates what it’s like to play a real gig, with real musicians. It’s the absolute best way to learn. 

You also get 1:1 video feedback on your playing from our expert instructors and can attend weekly live lessons. This personal feedback makes Pickup Music the closest thing to taking in-person lessons, but at a fraction of the cost.

So does this method actually work? Will you see results in your playing?

The most common thing we hear from new members is that they’ve made more progress with Pickup Music in a few months than in years of teaching themselves. As one member recently told us, “I'm finally seeing progress for the first time in many years”.

Is Pickup Music worth the money?

Private guitar lessons will cost you about $50 per lesson or $2,600 a year. 

Going to a music academy will cost you about $40,000 a year.

A Pickup Music membership will cost you  just $180 for the whole year. 

That works out to 50 cents a day! 

But it’s not just about the money. It’s about not wasting your precious time. It’s about making actual progress on this beautiful instrument. 

By following our proven Learning Pathway system, you can stop wasting your time and effort trying to guess what you should practice next. Our guided programs eliminate the guesswork so you know exactly what you need to focus on each day and week to make lasting progress with guitar.

What makes Pickup Music better than other guitar lesson sites?

Most online guitar lesson sites are very good at teaching one-off songs and licks. Or they get super famous guitarists to record one-hour video lessons talking at length about their particular style and career.

The problem is that these approaches don't stick. They don’t help you to actually get better as a guitarist. You can waste a lot of time bouncing around these types of unconnected, one-off lessons. It’s a recipe for a lot of practice without much progress. 

Pickup Music takes a different approach. We give you a highly structured system that shows you exactly what to work on each week to make serious progress. We take you beyond the basics through a step-by-step journey towards fretboard mastery. 

By following a Pickup Music Learning Pathway, you are getting the most guided way to learn guitar. Over 6 grades, you are taken through daily lessons and practice exercises that carefully explain what’s going on behind the music. 

Each grade then builds up to song performances that apply everything you’ve learned with a live backing band. These challenges - where we simulate what it’s like to play a real gig, with real musicians - is the absolute best way to learn. 

The Learning Pathway method takes the guesswork out of your practice routine. Most guitarists start to see a rapid acceleration in their progress in a matter of weeks.

You can also get 1:1 video feedback on your playing and weekly live lessons. This personal feedback makes Pickup Music the closest thing to taking in-person lessons, but at a fraction of the cost.

How do the Learning Pathways work?

Learning Pathways are kind of our special sauce here at Pickup Music. They take all the guesswork out of what to practice. 

You get day-by-day lessons, play along practice exercises with your instructor, interactive jams with the Pickup Music live band and you can submit videos of your playing for feedback from the Pickup Music team. 

We designed this system so that you will know exactly what to practice every time you pick up the guitar. This means that even if you only have time to practice with us once a week, you will still make great progress by following a Learning Pathways. 

How often do I need to practice to see results?

Ideally you would practice about three times a week for 30 minutes at a time. But we know that life gets in the way sometimes! So here’s the good news: deliberate practice matters so much more than how often you practice.

After working with thousands of guitarists, we’ve found that the most important thing is to know exactly what you’re going to practice before you pick up the guitar. Even if you can only use Pickup Music a few times a month, you will still make really good progress if you stick to the step-by-step structure of our Learning Pathways.

How long are the lessons? 

Pickup Music's lesson plans are designed to suit the amount of time you have available to practice.

  • Only got a few minutes? Try our 5-Minute Lessons to quickly add a new skill to your toolbox.
  • Got half an hour? Try one of our Essential Lick Packages or original Songs  to expand your vocabulary in different genres.
  • Got a couple of days? Try a Master Class with one of our world-renowned artists. Each class is broken up into short, digestible modules focused on one topic. 
  • Ready to really commit to a multi-week program? Try one of our Learning Pathways. Over 3 months and 6 grades of learning, these detailed courses will take you on a day-by-day journey to master each level in the genre. Learning Pathways include daily practice exercises so you know exactly what to focus on. These courses are the best way to make lasting progress.

Whichever approach you choose, we recommend building the exercises you learn into your daily practice schedule. The best way to improve as a guitarist is through a consistent practice routine rather than sporadic, longer sessions. Learning guitar is a day-by-day, life-long journey.

Can I take the lessons at my own pace?

Everything on Pickup Music is designed to be taken at your own pace. There are no deadlines, so you can work at your own speed. You can stay on a topic until you really understand it before you move on.

While we divide our Learning Pathways into ‘days’ - this is a suggestion only. Some learners might take a few days in one sitting, while others will spend a few sessions on a single day. You can go at the pace that feels most comfortable to you.

How does the 1:1 video feedback work?

We want our members to get the closest thing possible to in-person lessons but at a fraction of the cost. That's why you can now get individual video feedback on your guitar playing from our team of expert instructors.

Here's how it works:

  • Choose a performance piece to learn at the end of each grade of a Learning Pathway.
  • Upload a video of yourself playing the performance piece.
  • An expert instructor from our team will review your playing and send you back a detailed video on what you're doing well and what you need to work on.
  • Repeat for each grade of the Learning Pathway.

Want to see a sample? Check out this recent video feedback from Pickup Music instructor Jack Handyside.

Is Pickup Music good for beginners?

Absolutely! We make learning the guitar fun and simple – the way it should be.

Too many people get frustrated with guitar because they develop bad habits and poor technique. Avoid these costly and time-consuming mistakes by taking Pickup Music's structured and step-by-step approach to learning guitar.

You'll start with Pickup Music's introductory program Beginner Learning Pathway. Over three weeks, we break down everything from simple chords and melodies to rhythm and lead playing. By the end of the program, you'll be able to play any simple pop or rock song (and even write your own).

Most importantly, we make sure you don't get stuck in the beginner's plateau - a common pitfall for guitarists who are just starting out. You'll keep making progress through Pickup Music's guided Learning Pathways. These programs are designed to quickly take you from a beginner player to an intermediate one who feels comfortable across the whole fretboard.

Is Pickup Music good for intermediate and advanced guitarists?

Pickup Music is the best platform available for intermediate and advanced guitarists. Our courses take you beyond the basics to advanced concepts like the CAGED system, triads, arpeggios, modes and improvisation.

The biggest trap for intermediate players is bouncing around from lesson to lesson without a plan or structure to get to that next level. We are known for taking intermediate and advanced players who have hit a ceiling and busting through until they reach the next level.

Am I too old for guitar lessons?

Many of Pickup Music’s members are in their 60s and 70s and have seen amazing success with our programs. Our platform is designed to be user-friendly for all ages and skill levels. And our supportive community is made up of guitar learners of all ages, cheering each other on.

How does the 14-day free trial work? 

When you first sign up to a Pickup Music membership, you enter your credit card but it will not be charged for 14 days. That means that if you decide to cancel within 14 days of signing up, you won't pay anything. 

And we send you a reminder before your trial is about to end so you don’t forget about it. 

If you decide to cancel after that, you won't be charged at your next billing cycle. That means: if you’re a monthly member, you won’t be charged for the next month. If you’re an annual member, you won’t be charged for the next year.

How does the 60-day money back guarantee work?

In addition to the 14-day free trial, we offer a 60-day money back guarantee. If you’re not satisfied with your progress in the first 60 days of your membership, we will give you your money back - no questions asked.

Is it easy to cancel?

Absolutely! You can cancel at any time (although we'd be sad to see you go). Cancelling is easy, no tricks. Just go to your account page and click a button.

You won't be charged anything if you cancel during your 14-day free trial.

If you cancel after your 14-day trial, you won't be billed again at your next billing cycle. Your membership will remain active until it expires on the day it was originally set to renew.

Note: Once your membership expires, we'll save your progress on your Dashboard if you decide to rejoin at a later date.

What’s the difference between the annual and monthly plan?

The only difference is the price. The monthly membership is $29.99 charged monthly and the annual membership is $179.99 charged once a year. 

That means that if you select the annual plan you will pay 50% less and save $180 over a year compared to the monthly plan. 

We'll also send you reminders before we bill you each year so that you don't accidentally forget about it.

We give such a big discount for annual members because it aligns with our long-term vision to inspire and support lifelong guitar learning.

Can I buy lessons individually?

We don’t sell lessons individually. But the good news is you get access to every single lesson on Pickup Music through the one membership. If you’re only interested in one lesson, you could purchase a monthly membership and cancel when you’ve finished it – we have a hunch you’ll want to stick around though :)

How do I restart my membership?

It’s easy to rejoin Pickup Music and we’d be thrilled to have you back! We even saved all of your lessons for you while you were gone on your Dashboard.

To restart your membership, simply head to this page, select the plan of your choice, and sign up with the email address you used to sign up the first time around.
