Have you ever wanted to play the guitar? What if you could do it by the end of the week? In this course we’ll be covering the basic steps you need to be able to find the chords to any song you enjoy – and play them effortlessly!
We’ll start day one with the basic theory rules that you need to know in order to understand why you’re playing what you’re playing. With basic rules under our belt, we’ll jump into day two with our chord shapes. This is going to be the bulk of our class. Major (happy) and minor (sad) chord shapes are what make up the songs we’re learning. We’ll have step-by-step instructions on how to construct these shapes from any starting note on the fretboard, and chord progressions to practice.
We’ll finish with day 3, where we’ll talk about sharp chords, managing chords with special symbols, how to go online and find the chord charts to the songs you love, and a final project to work on.
At the end of our time together you should be equipped to approach any song and take yourself through the chords. You’ll also have a basic understanding of how the guitar works that will help you in future classes. Let’s get started!
