ABOUT THE COURSE:
The Almost Intermediate Acoustic Workshop is aimed at confident beginners keen to explore acoustic specific techniques before moving onto intermediate course material. You should be confident with open chords, strumming, basic theory and ear training. We may start using some barre chords, but it’ll be mostly open position playing. If you’ve done my Advancing Beginner Course (the “Oh When!” class of 2016) this is the one for you!
We’ll be looking at different skill sets every day: Finger Picking Basics; Solo Blues Guitar (playing blues on your own and mixing lead and rhythm!); Basic Acoustic Percussion (adding percussive hits and slaps while playing!); Making Chord Melody Arrangements; and a little Lead Guitar Improvisation.
