_You will learn guitar as an instrument with its intricacies in genres from Pop, Rock, Jazz or my speciality in Classical & Flamenco.
_To begin, you will learn basic chords, strumming patterns, TAB/tablature, and basic scales in the ‘open/1st position’ of the guitar, and correct right & left hand positions. These basics are fundamental to every style of guitar playing.
_Then we move on to finger-style playing, advanced Barre-Chords, Jazz Chords, Improvisation, Pentatonic & Modal Scales, Arpeggios, further exploring the entire fretboard, and discovering the myriad of colours the guitar is capable of achieving.
