Start with the basics including parts of the guitar, tuning, and caring for your instrument. Learn eight basic chords and a basic strum pattern that will allow you to play many songs, as well as a few of the ways you will encounter written notation for guitar. Explore songs in the American roots canon from Woody Guthrie to Tom Petty. Develop a strong foundation for playing with ease, good practice habits, and enjoying your instrument for years to come. Plenty of handouts provided. Please bring a working guitar (rentals available through Dusty Strings), tuner, music stand, and recording device. Jonathan Shue is the Education Director for Dusty Strings, a multi-instrumentalist and singer, and lover of all things guitar.
