When I first learned how to finger pick, I thought, “Now I’m a REAL guitar player.” I’ve checked in from time to time with my Guitar 2 students and apparently, I’m not alone in that feeling.

As with my other classes, you’ll learn finger picking, a few strum patterns and basic music theory in the context of playing specific songs. I’ll also help you create a manageable practice regimen (even for us over scheduled, over functioning New Englanders!).

This level is right for you as long as you can switch between open chords with relative comfort.

Registration includes:

5 weekly classes
Sheet Music
Let Me Take The Mystery Out Of It music theory worksheets
Lifetime access to video lessons of all lessons

You’ll learn technique and theory while playing songs like: Satisfaction (Rolling Stones), Killin’ The Blues, We Are Gonna Be Friends (White Stripes), Take It To The Limit (Eagles), Speed of the Sound of Loneliness (John Prine), As Tears Go By (Rolling Stones), Landslide (Fleetwood Mac)
