Because the song selection will vary with each class, this repertoire-building class can be repeated several times.

This will be a group class with an emphasis on sharpening many techniques within the context of playing specific songs, and developing a repertoire of songs.  We’ll work on developing better rhythm guitar techniques including alternating bass notes, bass runs, and moveable chord shapes.

We’ll work on specific songs during this class, and students will recommend the songs that we’ll be playing.  This is a great chance to work on those songs that you’ve always wanted to play, so dig out those song books and bring some tunes to class.

We will also cover basic finger-picking during this class and work on at least one song using finger-picking techniques.

You should come away from  this class with a much better understanding of many rhythm guitar techniques and how to apply these techniques to play some of your favorite songs.
