Your guided learning pathway
This music-first course is designed to get you playing melodic prog solos right away. In each lesson, Plini breaks down one of his solos then guides you through exercises and jams to internalize what you learned in a musical context and apply it to your own compositional skillset.

Ever After

We’ll get right into the music on Day 1 by learning a solo that sounds complex but is quite easy to get together.

In each day of this Master Class, you’ll work on a series of drills so you can learn the concepts behind the licks rather than just copying what Plini plays.


Up next, we’ll push you out of your rhythmic comfort zone with a solo in 6/8.

This solo is a Master Class in how dynamics make all the difference in sonic storytelling.


This solo will teach you all about the importance of articulation.

As any great guitarist will tell you, it’s not about which notes you play, it’s about how you play them.

Days 6 & 7. Frogtown Jam
Ready to continue leveling up with a new solo in 7/4? This one makes great use of space in the beginning, and will teach you about what goes into a great prog solo on the production side.

Days 8 & 9. Manifestation
When the prog track goes hard, sometimes all you need is a simple melody. We’ll cap off the class with a solo over a quintuplet-feel rhythm section.
