Don’t fret! You can continue what you started in Guitar 1. Using your lead sheets form Guitar 1, review the basics of playing guitar, reading lead sheets and right-hand technique. Then get an overview of where to go from there - with things like more advanced bar chords, some basic scales, and improvising theory that can be applied toward playing simple songs you’ve heard on the radio. By the end of the course, you’ll be performing confidently for family and friends. Bring your guitar. Prerequisite: knowledge of notes on the first three frets of the guitar and basic open chords.
