*For students who already know how to play three chords in at least one key.
“Guitar From Scratch” is not a prerequisite for this course, but would be helpful. Students may bring printed copies of chords and lyrics for simple songs they like. The primary goal is to develop proficiency to play along with live music in the major keys C, G, D, A and E. Singing while playing will be encouraged. How to change major chords into minor and seventh chords will be demonstrated. The use of the capo will also be introduced. It is important that students attend all classes, as each class will build on what was learned the week before.
