Guitar I Class Materials from 01/26/12

We had a great time "jamming" this week as we explored the minor pentatonic scale.  We then extended that out through the use of bending notes to make it the Blues Scale.  This week, in addition to reviewing all of your chords and songs be sure to practice:

  • Am petatonic scale
  • Blues scale
  • Bending notes

Great class this week!  Everyone managed to show their competancy on all of the chords from the first chart and we had a lot of fun turning the sheets into paper airplanes and launching them across the room.  That's A, D, E, G, C, Dm, Am and Em!  Next week we will be holding our Jam Session so there are two important things to work on this week.

  • Am Dm E Chord Progression - for playing rythm and
  • A Minor Pentatonic Scale for playing lead.

Psalm 25: Teach Me Your Ways, O Lord for Sunday, January 22, 2012

by Matt Retz on Wednesday, January 18, 2012 11:17 AM

Teach me your ways, O Lord.
Your ways, O LORD, make known to me;
teach me your paths,
Guide me in your truth and teach me,
for you are God my savior.

We had a great class this week.  Practice the following for at least 15 minutes everyday this week to prepare for a fun class next week!

  • Master all chords from the First Guitar Chords handout so we can have our "paper airplane party"!
  • Work on the Am Dm E Chord Progression and
  • the Am Pentatonic scale in preparation for our "Jam Session"!

See you next week.
