Picking For Strummers

Instruments: Guitar (all types)
Skill Level: Beginner

Discover a whole new world of music beyond just strumming chords. This class will teach basic picking techniques to help you build on easy chord shapes and make music that is more melodic and expressive.

We'll be working with the following chords in the open position: C D E G Am Em E7 D7 A7. You should know how to play most of these, even if your transitions aren't really quick yet. We'll also talk about how to make use of notes in cases where chord transitions may be too fast for your present skills.  Electric players, please keep your amps small.
