Introducing common guitar terms, then strumming chords “in rhythm” with familiar songs is where this class will begin. Tuning and basic chords played in time will help everyone play at their own pace with the techniques they are ready to try. Strumming coordination and timing will be specified for accompanying reels, waltzes, folksongs, jigs and more with technical accents that support these styles. We will start with a simple strum, boom-chick with a pick, and delve into finger-picking for sensitive songs. For more experienced players, work on beginning bass runs, unusual time signatures and tune dynamics can be practiced. For extra fun, we hope to get everyone in the groove playing together…enough so, to make you want to play more.
