This course will cover the basic chord playing accompaniment with the acoustic guitar. If you’ve always wanted to learn how to play the guitar and love the old, simple songs of the past, then this is the course for you. We will learn basic chording techniques, some barre chords and simple note reading and picking as the course progresses. We will use the Mel Bay “Fun with the Guitar” book, and it is suggested you purchase a copy of the book in order to practice outside of class. A music stand is required in this course. We will sing as we play and have a lot of fun!

*This course continues to meet during the intersession on the dates following the asterisk above.
