We worked extensively on Power Chords this week.  It is important that everyone spend time this week memorizing the notes on the E and A strings as shown on the chart on page 28 of the book.  We also talked about enharmonic notes where a single note has two names as in the case of A# and Bb.

This week

  • Review
  • Memorize notes on E and A string from p. 28.
  • Use DVD to play along with the exercises on p. 29.

Guitar I Class Materials from 2/7/13

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
