Beginner Guitar

How many strings does this thing have? You will learn this and so much more in this class.

This class is for the adult complete beginner who has never picked up the guitar or only knows a few chords and is having trouble making it sound like something anyone but your mother can love. We will learn:

  • Holding the guitar
  • Your first 10 chords
  • Time signatures and how to keep time
  • Bass Lines

This class is right before the Campfire Guitar Bootcamp for the intermediate guitarist class which is the simplified version of the regular class. For the most adventurous of students who wants to put the stuff you learn into practice right away, this is a manageable option.
