Each week, we'll learn the chords of a new song on the guitar. I've created arrangements of standard songs that are simplified down to 3-5 chords and their variants, so learners of any level will be able to get a handle on the tunes. Requests to learn certain songs are welcome! We'll start by going through each of the chords, learning how to read a chord chart and how to play each chord. Then we'll take the song one line at a time, putting it all together at the end. Through the process,...
There will be no homework required, but like any skill, the more you practice, the more you'll get out of what you've learned. My goal is to make the lesson fun and instructive so the student will want to pick up their guitar and play regularly.
A handout will be provided for each song with charts for all of the chords in the song, and the lyrics of the song with indications for when each of the chord changes happens. I'll also send two recordings of me playing the songs, one slower and one at full tempo, to practice along to at home after the class. Students should bring: • A tuned guitar (acoustic or electric guitars are equally welcome and appropriate for this class) • Guitar pick (optional - finger picking is a perfectly good technique) • Guitar strap (optional - students may sit or stand, depending on preference)
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
