Guitar I Class Materials from 2/7/13

by Matt Retz on Friday, February 8, 2013 7:47 AM

We worked on music for the recital on February 26 at 6:00 PM.  All students will need to have a capo so if they haven't yet gotten one please do so ASAP.  After class had ended I was advised that one of the songs we started on this week has been cut from the program so no need to worry about "Jus' Plain Blues".  Of course, you are welcome to keep working on it if you like.

This Week:

  • Review
  • Blessed Be Your Name
  • Power Rock

in the presence of the angels I will sing your praise;
I will worship at your holy temple
and give thanks to your name.
