Which chords to learn?

guitar lessonsTake a look at the guitar lessons in the Blog for some introductory chord exercises, or check out the Beginner Guitar Lesson series of video lessons for some chord and scale exercises for beginners.  I also have a book for sale that gives you specific chord exercises to start with, and then develops your ability to play with increasingly hard chords.  You can find more information about this book on the “Guitar Chord Book” page.

Guitar Classes

Guitar Classes in Boston July 2018:  I’ll be doing three classes this term at the Boston Center for Adult Education.  I’ll be teaching a beginner guitar class July 11 – August 22, 6:00 – 7:15 on Wednesday nights.  This class focuses on teaching open chords and pentatonic scales.  Students will learn how to play some songs with the chords they’ve learned.  I’ll also be teaching a ukulele class from 7:30 – 8:45 from July 11 – August 1, and then I’ll be doing a level 2 guitar class focusing on fingerpicking and arpeggiation from August 8 – August 22.   This class also involves learning songs by current and classic rock artists.  To sign up, visit the BCAE website.
