New Class – Introduction to Guitar for Adults

This course will be offered though Ohio University’s Athens Community Music School. Designed for the beginning guitarist or the intermediate guitarist wanting to brush up on basic accompaniment skills, Introduction to Guitar for Adults will cover learning basic chords and strumming patterns using songs in the style of familiar folk and rock tunes. Other topics will include: fingerpicking accompaniments, learning to use a lead sheet, and how to comfortably sit in with other musicians. We will be using National Guitar Workshop’s “Beginning Guitar for Adults” by Nick Vecchio as our text. The course will run for eight classes beginning on September 13. Classes will be held on Tuesday evenings from 7:0pm to 8:00pm at OU School of Music.
