Guitar 102

Live Guitar Course: Live Course: Guitar 102

Congratulations on working through the first 10 weeks of Guitar 101. Hopefully, you're feeling confident in the material we've covered so far and are ready to take your playing to another level. We return to the world of beginner guitar in this live workshop. This six-week module is largely focused on chords. We're going to cover, the minors, power chords, barre chords and spend a lot of time looking at chord progressions. Six weeks on chords might sound like a lot, but remember, everything we do includes playing and applying what we learn over real music, so you're not stuck just learning shapes with nowhere to take them. I'm looking forward to helping you continue your guitar journey!

Changing Strings

Well, you’ve been playing for at least 10 weeks now. It’s high time we changed some strings! We’re going to look at how to change strings and perform basic guitar maintenance on an acoustic and three different type of electrics, each with different bridge setups. I wish there was an online session like this when I was learning! Bring your guitar and change your strings along with me.

Do You Ever Wear Flannel?

We’re going to learn and apply the E and A string power chord shapes. We’ll discuss different fingerings and work on two different familiar chord progressions over backing tracks to break your power chord fingers in!

Week 3

Three Basic Minor Chords

You may have already gone ahead and learned these, but we’re officially covering the basic open minor shapes here. We’ll look at Am, Em and Dm. In the spirit of injecting a bit of creativity, we’re also going to work on a few major and minor chord variations as well. They’ll go nicely with our tracks.

The Dreaded Barre Chord: Part 1

Barre chords are often the first major road block beginner guitar players hit. We’re going to make the process of getting these pesky chords down simple and pain free! We’re going to take the shapes in stages (this week we look at only the E shape), look at hand and wrist positions and look at how to practice barre chords for the best results.

Week 5

05/19/2016 at 6pm

The Dreaded Barre Chord: Part 2

This week is all about the A shape barre chord. We’re going to do the exact same thing we did with E and go through the paces with A. There’s a few more fingering options with A, and we’ll look at those as well.

Week 6

05/26/2016 at 6pm

Common Chord Progressions

We’ve spent a good deal of time on chords in this module. We’re going to cover several common chord progressions that will tap into all that we have worked on so far. Get out that metronome and let’s strum some chords!
