Guitar for Improvers 2

This course is for people who have been playing guitar for several months and want to develop their playing, especially for accompanying songs. Learners will build on what they already know & learn ways to improve their confidence with chords and different styles of playing, particularly for accompanying songs. Learners will contribute suggestions for songs and are expected to share their own knowledge with the group. Ways of learning new songs will be covered, including reading tablature (TAB), chord diagrams and simple musical notation. They will learn how capos can be used to move songs into different keys, to make them easier to play and to make them suitable for different voices.
Introduction to Barre chords.
