A few questions for you:

– What would it feel like, if you knew that ANY songs that you would choose to play on the guitar – would just sound beautiful, personal, and expressive out of your own hands?

– Expressive and even emotional in a way that you’ve only felt a few times before, when you’ve heard REALLY good versions of those songs – perhaps covers, that you just fell in love with and couldn’t stop listening to?

– What if I told you, that you can be able to play all of your favorite songs – in your own way, and actually FEEL great emotions and new inspiration while playing them?


If you’re tired from playing songs in the same old way, and from feeling like everything that you play sounds the same – I have to tell you that I was there too, for years. That’s exactly the reason that I made this course, and it’s been create as the dream course that I wish I had a few years ago.

You are about to become a completely different guitar player – a whole lot more interesting & captivating, with a personal style, and most importantly – having more fun in each song that you play. (And so will your listeners)

People will be touched and impressed with what you’ll do on the guitar – and they’ll want to hear more and more.


(for more details on the techniques and “spices” that you will learn – see the description below, and also the course curriculum content below)


What students have said:


“I’ve been a basic “campfire” strummer for years. I decided to try this course to see if I really could spice up my playing and make it more interesting. I’m still in the early stages, but already I’ve learned two new techniques that weren’t too difficult to pick up that are already starting to make a difference in my playing and in my songwriting. The instructor’s positive, encouraging tone is very motivating and helpful – especially when trying something a little more difficult. This course is HUGE! I expect to learn tons by the time I work my way through it. This is money well-spent!” James Craven


Cooper is an amazing teacher who knows what we want to learn. I always felt I played the guitar in a really boring fashion. In only a couple of days with his course I learned to play songs with arpeggios and everyone noticed a huge difference. This course is everything I was looking for. Jehú Alvarado


“Let’s clarify one thing right off the bat. This is not a song lessons course, you’re expected to already know a few songs. This is a “how do I go about playing the songs I know my way” course. The PDFs are your friends when it comes to helping you really break down and understand the ideas presented (and I know Cooper put a lot of work into them because they are chock full of information…) If you’re looking for a nudge to get you out of a campfire strumming rut, this is exactly what the doctor (of awesome covers) ordered.” Dora P.


“The advantage over the “learn-how-to-play-this-song” approach of most Youtube videos is that he teaches some basic techniques that can be applied to dress up any song.” Larry Tuck


“This course is absolutely amazing. I could not find much on these techniques all over the web, and this course covered all I needed in such a professional way – it is unreal!” Eli Eliashar


“I play the guitar for decades now, but not feeling a real improvement, although I spent my life on Youtube. I started Mr Cooper course yesterday (Spice your songs playing), and the two first lessons gave me plenty of ideas on how to improve my arpeggios, adding scale chords I never thought about. Thanks a lot for that course. All the best for you. Dominique.” Dominique Farese.


Are you at a place where you can play songs that you love on the guitar, but you feel that most of them sound plain, and sort-of the same when you play them?

Do you want to play songs in a more enjoyable, satisfying way – with a lot more creative choices and sound options at your fingertips?

Do you want to be able to really express and transmit your emotions through your playing – and captivate your listeners?

Do you want to get into a journey of improving and spicing-up your song-playing through studying the habits, ideas and techniques of some the world’s most-loved guitarists? (The Beatles, John Mayer, Ed Sheeran, Jimi Hendrix, Jack Johnson and many others)

If the answers are yes – so you are in the right place, and the only place on the internet which can give you those answers.

I created this course as the dream course that I wish I had when I was at the position that you’re at now.


I was at that exact same place shortly after I was finally able to play a lot of my favorite songs fluently, and this feeling stuck for several years of mostly plateauing.

A feeling of “OK… What’s next after I got those simple strums down?”. I felt like my playing was stuck in a rut and there was nothing really special or ear-catching in my playing, neither to me – or to my friends who were listening.

That’s actually a spot most people get to – once they can strum some songs. They want to be more than a campfire player that’s identical to the next guy/girl.

And you can be at this spot whether if you’ve been playing for 6 months or 30 years.

But with the right guidance and inspiration – you can move forward very quickly and fire up the guitar passion all over again.


Once I started getting on that road of discovering new song-playing techniques, the new possibilities and new spices I can add to my sound just kept showing up, my ears got better, and I found new inspirations in many songs that I listened to.

Today – the last thing I feel when I play a song is the “boredom” or the “same-old-same-old” feeling that I used to feel.

The other way around is true – I feel like there are just many different ways in which I can take a song and make it “my own”.

Because of that, each time I play a song – it’s also a slightly different version of it – and that’s what I like the most – the richness of possibilities and choices that I can make.


Extra: The Official Course E-Books: Also, look below for the 7 bonus E-Books that you’re getting)

  1. Beautiful, printable SONGBOOK with 110+ of the most fun-to-play guitar songs of all time – so you’ll have many songs to practice your new techniques on. I handpicked these songs for you – and they are all EPIC. You’ll get hundreds of hours of fun out of this book.

  2. 37$ Value Bonus: A detailed 100 page fancy e-book that’ll help you ingrain the knowledge from each lesson. Inluding how-to-practice guides, cheat-sheets, links to relevant examples in famous songs, lesson summaries, and more.


The 18 techniques that you will have up your sleeve after this course are:  (everything will be learned by using practical examples from at least 5 famous songs, and with detailed “how to put this into practice” guides)

  1. Arpeggio Picking: (“The #1 Way to Beautify Songs”) where instead of strumming all strings at once – you pick every note individually. We will focus deeply on this technique and you will get all the tools you need to easily play songs that are originally played with arpeggios, or also to “convert” regular, strummed songs into gorgeous arpeggio covers. Notable examples: Green Day – Time of Your Life, Led Zeppelin – Stairway to Heaven, R.E.M – Everybody Hurts.

  2. Create “Stairways” Over Chord Transitions by Using Bass Walk-Ups & Walk-Downs: This is a technique to make your chord transitions more lively – where instead of for example switching directly from G to E minor, we will take the role of a bass player for a second, and add a “walk-down” on the F# note, on the way down from the G to the E minor. Examples: Jeff Buckley – Hallelujah, Ben E. King – Stand By Me, Radiohead – Karma Police.

  3. Changing the Vibe of a Song by Changing the GROOVE (rhythmic feeling): Take a song that you know and with (or without) the help of a virtual drummer app, “inject” a new groove (new “rhythmic feeling”) into it. For example, turn a chill song into a funky song, or a rock song into a bossa-nova. This one’s FUN, and you can see examples in The Fugees cover of No Woman No Cry (sort of a folk rhythm in the Bob Marley version, turned into R&B rhythm), in John Mayer’s cover of Free Fallin’ (The Tom Petty rock song – turned into folk), and in Jamiroquai cover of Sunny. (soul song turned into a super funky song)

  4. Give Your Songs a Lot More DEPTH by Building Them Up Gradually, Using DYNAMIC Playing: With the techniques and theory in this section, you’ll be able to leave the “flat” song-playing behind you, and give songs deeper performances, with varying energy levels in each part, even when all you have is just one acoustic guitar and not a full band. Examples: the build-ups between the parts of the song in Green Day – Time of Your Life, Jeff Buckley – Hallelujah, Van Morrison – Into the Mystic.

  5. Add Some MELODIES to Your Song-Playing by Adding Riffs & Fills Between Chords: Spice up your song-playing by combining some lead-guitar playing in it – by adding cool melodies and riffs in between some of your chords. Examples: all the Jimi Hendrix songs, John Mayer – Gravity, Jack Johnson – F-Stop Blues, Van Morrison – Crazy Love (Athens 1989 version).

  6. Adding Some Acoustic Beach Vibes to Your Songs with “The Jack Johnson Slaps & Mutes”: Learn how to play chill, acoustic, “beach-style” guitar – in the style of Jack Johnson. Examples: Jack Johnson – Better Together, I Got You, Banana Pancakes, Bubbly Toes. The Beautiful Girls – La Mar. Ben Harper – Forever.

  7. You’ll be able to naturally substitute plain chords with some COLORFUL 7th chords in songs that you play. (like Dmaj7, F7, Em7, etc.) You’ll know how to use them and you’ll know when they fit in best. Examples of songs with a lot of 7th chords: Just the Two of Us, The Beatles – Something, Fly Me to the Moon. Also, most blues songs contain Dominant7 / minor7 chords.

  8. Beautifully decorating your chords by using hammer-ons and pull-offs in and out of them. Examples: Bob Dylan, Brett Dennen – Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright, The Doobie Brothers – Long Train Running, John Mayer – Queen of California.

  9. We’ll work on adding the #1 ingredient into your songs – EMOTION. We’ll see different examples from artists who evoke different emotions and do some exercises ourselves, so you can really start feeling the songs, and make…

  1. Luis Brito

    I can definitely see this course helping breaking through that initial barrier when it comes to learning a programming language. I’m positive I’ll finish it and hopefully master python by then.

  2. Abdallah Galal Abouhussein

    I would like to share my personnel experience, i`m very pleased and happy for taking this impressive course because Dr. Angela always makes it simple and easy to understand and always makes a precaution section before or after any bug that may appear to some students and also write or record the solution for us, and each word she said is very real and easy to understand.
    Thanks Dr. Angela
    Abdallah Galal

  3. Jiaqing Fan

    Very good course. Dr Angela explains things very clearly. The exercises are interactive and helpful.

    Angela’s voice is like ASMR in most lessons. So you won’t lose focus?

  4. Jaime Sánchez Blanco

    Every concept is very well explained so you can assimilate it, and the teacher insists in practicing daily to get the habit of programming. It really motivates to keep studying and practicing every day.

  5. Bradley Carouthers

    3 days in and I’ve already learned more than other training programs where I’ve put months in. Her teaching style is both efficient and effective.

    Edit: Now on day 29 and the course has held up my expectations and hopes. The rise in complexity is not too sharp, and every day feels like an accomplishment. Angela takes her time to explain things without rushing, yet is able to pack tons of information in nuggets of time.

    Still recommend supplemental exposure for a more wholesome grasp. Though, this should be quite enough

  6. Tommy Prévost

    Very good course.

    PROs: lots of coding exercises, clear explanations, great examples, adapted to 2021’s reality.

    CONs: past the first 30 lessons, many similar coding hands-on.

  7. Quang Tu

    I love all the lectures and challenges of this course. I finally find myself in love with coding. This is definitely a fun course. Thank you Angela for this great course.

  8. Fortunate Eze

    This course is nothing short of AMAZING. The level of love and sincere desire to see students succeed present in this course is a rare sight. This course is fun, it’s challenging, it’s suspense-filled, it makes you feel good about yourself solving those challenges. You don’t take this course and memorise codes, you take it and you know what you’re doing because you literally do it yourself.

    It couldn’t possibly be any more obvious that Angela brought out her whole heart, time, energy and resources to give us a course that if priced based on it’s value, many of us certainly can’t afford. I mean, she kept advising and encouraging us to keep going, because she knows the road could get bumpy, she made a few jokes and used funny animations so we smile along the way keeping it fun. Why some people can’t see this and would rather subscribe to trying to bend courses to fit their own personal preferences is beyond me, but I guess people will always be people.

    Dear Angela, I cannot speak for everyone but I certainly can speak for myself and I’m saying thank you. The efforts you put into making this course outstanding didn’t go unnoticed.

    Let as many of us as appreciate your efforts make you happy and energize you to create more life changing courses for us.


  9. Chendaniel

    Just the course fits me. Learn by doing, it is easy to start and just follow the flow and at day 15 you realized how to program in Python. Then the magic happen. I am on day 27 and I am looking forward to start a new section everyday.

  10. Caspar Cheng

    Angela is my favourite teacher on Udemy, her courses always come with clear and concise demonstration, make it really easy to understand the content. Meanwhile, she also provide a lot of tips to encourage us moving further on the way of coding. I’m definitely a super fan of her. I had finished her web development boot camp and now I’m learning Python 100 days of code. This course is amazing as she provided one particular project for each day’s learning, which is, really useful and handy. Also, those projects are really interesting and won’t let me feel disappointed about myself. Although some of them are a little bit difficult, they’re still resolvable after some struggling and searching online. I’ll recommend this course for those who really want to learn Python well and write real python projects from scratch!

  11. Jonas Weber

    The course was awesome in the first half! Really helped me to get back to programming and learning new techniques. Also the course got way to much focused on web development in the second half, which I’m not really interested in and is redundand to your dedicated web development course. The lack of videos in the last quarter was rather sad. I really would’ve liked some video explanations for pandas and matplotlib. The challenges and capstone projects were great and challenging!
    All in all I can really recommend this course for beginners and those who want to learn python and/or get back to programming!

  12. Rohit Prasad

    Angela is the best teacher I have ever experienced. The way she explains all the topics and makes use of it in the projects is commendable. Thank you so much Angela for this course.
