About Guitar 1 & 2

Throughout this course we will be looking at the basics of playing the guitar and developing the fundamental skills involved in folk guitar playing from basic fingerpicking patterns to chordal accompaniment for folk songs.

We'll look at strumming patterns, different chord voicing and learning basic folk tune arrangements on the guitar.

Learning mainly by ear, students will develop skills in a range of techniques and styles in an informal and relaxed environment at their own pace.

This course is ideal for those who wish to gain an insight into folk guitar and pick up some fun and interesting techniques along the way.

Please note that we only accept complete beginners during the Autumn term – there is no Level 1 class in the Spring.

Learn folk guitar in a relaxed and friendly environment. The classes explore all aspects of folk guitar; from flat picking tune playing to chordal accompaniment for folk songs.

The modern day acoustic guitar is a popular musical instrument classified as a string instrument typically with 6 to 12 strings.

The sound is projected acoustically through the vibration of the instrument and is played by strumming or plucking the strings with the right hand while fretting the strings with the fingers of the left hand.

For this course you will need an acoustic six-stringed guitar, preferably with steel strings but any acoustic guitar will work. You will be learning both fingerpicking and using a guitar pick.

Young people 12–15 years old may attend with a participating, responsible adult over 18 years of age.
