The skills of basic chords and strum patterns will be continued from the first class. We will learn the notes of the fingerboard so you can play basic melodies on the guitar. Guitar ensemble skills will be learned so you can play with other group members. New strum patterns, as well as fingerpicking (Arpeggio), will be learned. Each week a group member will choose a song for the class to learn. This way a variety of styles and music will be shared. A short time will be used to play drums and rhythmic interventions to encourage emotional expression and build self-confidence. Weekly videos will be posted on Youtube so you can get help from home and stay caught up if you have to miss a class. Fun songs that will be learned in this class are: Let it Be by the Beetles, Teach your Children, Amazing Grace, Surfin’ USA, American Pie, Scarborough Fair, Red River Valley, and more.
