For the player who is already pretty good but wants to really hone their skills
You can already work your way through songs and you know quite a bit of stuff. Well done! But there are gaps to be filled, and this is where we do it.
What you’ll learn
You’ll be given an introduction to CAGED system on guitar. This will feed into knowledge about arpeggios, chord inversions and will come with an introduction to modal playing.
To be specific, you’ll learn six inversions and be given a chance to use them. You’ll learn the major, minor and dominant versions of C and G type inversions.
We’ll discuss how the fretboard works as a series of recognisable intervals that you can then use to create melodies and build new and interesting chords including some really groovy sounding chord extensions.
Aside from from four weeks of fun jamming and learning you’ll be encouraged with your group, to meet outside of class and do some practice together in preparation for an end of term rock and roll full band performance
Sunday 12.30-3pm starting 1st November October , running every Sunday for 4 week
So many people take up guitar in their bedroom, and never move on from that, or worse, just give up. Learning and playing as part of a group guided by the very able, clever and amusing Thomas Binns, gives a whole new dimension to learning to play. I started from scratch age 57, and now play in a pub band with some other friends I have made at Guitar Social. If you are alone, you don’t have to be. there are lot’s of like minded people of all ages ready to have musical fun with.
