I've been playing the guitar now for almost 15 years. Although I am a very proficient player, it
always felt like something was missing. I can read and write music and have a pretty good
understanding of music theory, but there is one skill I had never been able to master... perfect
If you're reading this, you're probably in a very similar situation to me. You
can play an instrument pretty well, but you feel like your ears often let you down. Like you, I

Unfortunately, I initially forked out quite a lot of
cash on a couple of courses that ended up being absolutely useless. The first course came on a bunch
of CDs (very expensive) with no accompanying literature. I found the course difficult to follow and
the exercises were extremely repetitive and dull - I gave up within a week.

much cheaper course that came as a download. Within a week I was making pretty good progress, again
the lesson were very repetitive and boring, but I decided to stick with it this time. Then, out of
the blue the courses started to get extremely technical and I found it impossible to follow. As I
mentioned I have a pretty good understanding of music theory but I was totally lost. I listened to
the lessons again and again but I couldn't make any sense of it.

The pure pitch method...
About a month ago a
musician told me about a new course he had recently used... the pure pitch method. He was raving

was a little sceptical after two failed perfect pitch attempts, but I gave in and decided to
download it and give it a try.
I've been using the pure pitch method for about a
month now and I'm almost finished. I can now name all 12 notes, and most chords instantly and my new
skill has become my favourite new party trick. It took a while, but I finally found a course that
worked for me.
