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 is not required, but knowledge of chords (at least in the keys of C and G) and some note reading skills are required. Students without basic theory fundamentals or the ability to read music notation must be open to initially catching up/learning those basics taught in Guitar: Beginning, as those skills wiill be utilized in Guitar: Beginning II. Note: A Materials Fee of $15 is payable to the instructor at the beginning of the first class session.
