"The course is excellent! I use it almost every day and find it fits well with other resources, like the Advancing Guitarist, Patterns for Jazz, The Fingerboard Workbook, and so on.

I feel like I'm gaining knowledge I will be using for a long time. I hope you guys add to the course, or make another, building on the current one. Good job! Do more. Do much more."

-George W.

Use the Alphabet to “Copy-Paste” Your Way to Fretboard Mastery!

Deeply learning the name of the notes and the intricate guitar fingerboard layout bring you closer towards fretboard mastery. And it’s often as simple as seeing the same thing in a different spot (Deja Vu) on the instrument. Playing music then becomes much more enjoyable, since you can better let your creativity soar with your newfound knowledge and ideas.Applications of the Deja Vu course connect you to the jazz tradition. However, guitarists of all levels and styles can benefit from the tutorials' unique approach. This is not your typical “learn ever scale positions” course, as we’re not dealing with sheet full of “dots” on the fingerboard. Deja Vu offers you the keys to decipher guitar’s logic! At every step of the way, you’re brought to a greater understanding of the instrument.

Content and Overview

Suitable for all levels, this course of 12 lectures, over 50 written exercises and 2 hours of video content, helps you learn the fretboard like never before. Each exercise is played (camera zoom on instructor fretboard) and then explained in a friendly relaxed atmosphere.

At first, we use the alphabet to build the foundation for the rest of the course. By playing on one string at a time, we uncover the musical nature of the guitar. Then with unissons and octaves, we’re able to see common musical ideas and techniques in a fresh new light.

With these basics mastered, we then use compression and three fingering types to build all the scales, arpeggios and chords any modern guitarist needs to play music in any style. All the materials can easily be transposed in all the keys, anywhere on the fretboard.

Complete with slowly explained exercises in the demonstration videos, Deja Vu let’s you play along with your host (Marc-Andre) to fully grasp the nature of the alphabet while copy-and-pasting your way to ultimate guitar success.

"I liked that this course started very simple and basic and progressed in a logical manner without large gaps in the process. This would be like walking up evenly spaced stairs instead of a mix of big, small and giant steps. I also loved some of the included backing tracks which made repetition of the exercises very enjoyable."

-David D., Canada

"What I like best about the course is that it's laid out beautifully, the design really gives you that sensation of progress."

Frequently Asked Questions


Who should take this course? Who should not?
All levels of guitarists who still have “blindspots” on the fretboard when soloing should take this course. NOT for advanced players with full mastery of the fretboard (positions, horizontal, etc.)
Are TABS included?

Yes. You get 51 written exercises in two separate PDFs, all with standard notation and TABS. No note-reading necessary.

I don't know music theory, can I enroll in Deja Vu?

Yes! The only theory we cover in the course are whole-steps (two frets jump) and half-steps (one fret). We do not get into fancy jazz theory, and we do not discuss modes, progressions, key signatures and so on.

How long are the videos?

Between 5-10 minutes of instruction for each lecture. The total running time is 142 minutes. There is 12 lectures plus 12 videos where the exercises are played slowly with a zoom on the instructor fretboard/fingers.

Is this course different than "Learn the Fretboard"?

Yes. The course Learn the Fretboard, although very interesting and a nice introduction for beginners, covers only about 10% of what you will see in Deja Vu. In Deja Vu, we cover fingering types, chords and arpeggios, which is not the case in Learn the Fretboard.

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish. In fact, you can keep reviewing the Deja Vu concepts for a lifetime.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
