Unpacking Progressive Guitar Techniques

If you want to compose interesting music, you can’t rely on the same chord progressions, scales, and techniques for every song. By increasing your vocabulary of techniques, you can unlock new tones and progressions that you may never have thought of before.

If you find that your playing has gotten stale, or if you’re looking to improve or change the way that you approach your song writing, this is the perfect workshop for you. During this FREE Guitar Frenzy session Marius Kruger will unpack some progressive guitar techniques.

About Marius Krüger

Krüger frontman Marius Krüger is a multi- talented singer/songwriter/guitarist, born and bred in the Diamond city (Kimberley). Combining a decade of singing experience with almost 2 decades of guitar playing experience, resulted in an artist who can not only hold his own as a vocalist and songwriter, but his guitar playing and live performance have left many crowds pleasantly surprised and wanting more.

Marius Krüger received his first guitar at age 9 from his father and quickly learned his way around the fretboard, within a year of playing he was shredding Metallica riffs without effort, a feat not easily accomplished by a self-taught 10-year-old guitarist. After 10 years of playing in his room, he started performing acoustic gigs and discovered that he had a voice with a lot of original qualities that seemed to please crowds as far as he went.

As far as influences go, Metallica certainly got the guitar playing started for him and soon enough Marius discovered artists such as Eric Clapton, Dave Matthews, and Jimmy Page, but a pivoting time in his guitar journey was the year that he started to embrace music from Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Brad Paisley and Stevie Ray Vaughan. You can certainly hear hints of these artists in his playing, but don’t be fooled he has a very distinct tone and original playing style.
As far as songwriting goes Marius Krüger started writing his own music in both Afrikaans and English at the early age of 16, and at age 21 he recorded his first self-written independent album under the name Fly. This was only the start of a songwriting career that would later escalate to him being approached by Sean Manley from Manley Studios to write songs for other performing artists.
