Nita Strauss Announces “Rock Guitar Fundamentals” Online Education Program

Nita Straussthe Los Angeles-based guitar shredder for the ALICE COOPER group, launched “Rock Guitar Basics” – an online guitar teaching program in three modules suitable for learners of all levels. The course is available on and for a limited time, Nita offers fans a 50% discount. No code required.

“Rock Guitar Basics” is an online education program developed by Nita with one simple goal: to get guitars into the hands of as many people as possible and help them improve their playing. Nita has developed a three-module system where budding learners can step in at any skill level, from picking up guitar for the very first time to advanced players who want to deepen their music theory or learn some tips and tricks.

Module one is designed for the brand new player and goes over guitar anatomy and all the basics like how to hold the pick correctly, fret the notes, tuning and more. The second module has a strong focus on technique and theory, approached from the perspective of a rock player to be very easily understood by the modern musician. The third module is where you begin to experience the bells and whistles of swipe selection, legato, whammy bar tricks, and more.

Nita says of the course: “I see so many people online saying they want to play guitar but don’t know where to start. And many more experienced players who are frustrated with technique and theory. I have so wanted to create a step by step course that explains everything clearly from the perspective of a rock guitarist.If you’ve never picked up a guitar before and you’re starting this course from the beginning, as long as you’re ready to devote time to it, you’ll end up with a great knowledge base for playing solos, writing songs and playing on stage with a band.”

During this year NAMM show in Anaheim, California, Nita launched three new signature products: two new versions of its Ibanez signature JIVA, the more affordable JIVA Jr in the fan-favorite “Deep Sea Blonde” finish, and the high-end Japanese-made JIVA X, an elegant transparent black quilted maple.

D’Addario & Co. released a special toolkit designed by Nita and named the “Hurricane Kit” – a gig guitarist’s emergency kit with all the tools you could need at any time.

Levy’s straps released one Nita signature design guitar strap, a black and gold strap with a baroque filigree pattern. They have also released a design similar to the colors of the Australian flag to benefit koalas affected by the bushfires in Australia.

Nita has also been busy writing and recording for the sequel to her hugely successful debut album, “Controlled Chaos”released on Sumerian records in November 2018.

NitaThe live show is mostly instrumental in nature, combining originals with covers.

Strauss played with Alice Cooper since 2014 when she replaced Australian musician and former michael jackson player Orianthi. She joined Alice in time for a mammoth MOTLEY CRUE to visit. She was recommended to Cooper by the legendary rocker’s former bassist and WINGER leader Kip Winger.
