The class will be centered on the rhythm guitar an its role in Rock and Roll, folk, Country and Pop genres. We will be building on the Chord vocabulary learned from the previous class and there will be some note reading, but the class will mostly focus on learning the strum patterns and chords for any song that would be available from multiple sources such as from Songbooks, Lead Sheets, online tabs and chords. The class will be using the Hal Leonard Guitar Method I book, but students are encouraged to learn their favorite songs. All types of guitars and genres are accepted in this class. Taking Guitar Beginning I is not required, but knowledge of chords (at least in the keys of C and G) and some note reading skills are required. Note: A Materials Fee of $10 is payable to the instructor at the beginning of the first class session.
