Prerequisites : Players should be able to play chords in C, F, G and D major and keep a steady beat. Some note reading or tablature experience will be helpful.

This course will introduce students to simple arpeggios and fingerpicking patterns. Some basic music theory will be introduced. Students will have fun learning new chords and strums while concentrating on playing with more speed and flow. As a result of improving these skills, the songs in the sing- along segment will be more musically interesting.
