Getting Started with Guitar

Learn the basics of playing guitar

Learn to play the guitar! No experience necessary. If you have always wanted to play the guitar, but never learned, this class is for you. By the end of this five-week course you will be able to play the basic chords, strumming patterns, and finger-picking patterns found in hundreds of songs. You’ll also learn the tools you need to keep learning new songs long after the class is over. All you need is your own guitar.
