Guitar For The Absolute Beginner
About Guitar For The Absolute Beginner
Always wanted to play guitar? You've looked at a few books and maybe a few YouTube videos, but it all seems so overwhelming. You just want to know where to start! This class is for you. Even if you've never picked up a guitar before I'll walk you through everything -- how to hold a guitar, how to tune a guitar, how to play a few chords... What is a chord??? By the end of the class we'll be playing a few songs! Taught by an instructor with over 20 years experience teaching full time, Guitar For The Absolute Beginner will be a laid back and fun class with a focus on making music on day one and not too much focus on technical things. All you'll need is an acoustic or an electric guitar.
- Square one basics -- how to hold and tune a guitar. How to hold a pick.
- Music basics -- keeping a beat and counting a rhythm. How to follow chord changes on a lead sheet. How to read chord diagrams.
- Strategies for practicing -- how often and long should one practice? How to practice strumming and making chord changes in time.

Hi, I've been teaching music full time for the past 20 years in San Francisco. I've also been playing professionally in various band and doing studio session work for 30 plus years. Recently I've been dabbling in film scoring and production music (music for commercials, web videos, etc) Even more recently I've ventured into the world of online teaching and it seems like a natural fit.
