Guitar 101 with Nadine Landry
Expect to play a lot in this class! We'll work on chords, strumming patterns, ear training and basic music theory. We'll play breakdowns, two-steps, and waltzes, we'll talk about chord progressions, Nashville number system and then we'll do some more playing! We'll incorporate bass runs to our strums and we'll work on providing good rhythm for singers and melody instruments. We'll explore old time, bluegrass and old country rhythms. This class will be targeted to the participants' needs, in hopes that by the end of week, you'll head home inspired and equipped with tools to play with others and have a good ol' time!
