This class will focus on improving timing, playing basic rhythms, various strum patterns, fingerpicking/fingerstyles and integrating right hand muting and accenting techniques. You'll then apply these skills to tighten up your groove, and make you a more confident rhythm guitarist in various styles that include Rock, Blues, Funk and Hard Rock. Musical examples by Jimmy Paige, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi Hendrix, Keith Richards, Prince, Van Halen and other legends will provide fun rhythms/riffs to practice on. For guitarists who are comfortable playing open position and bar chords. Bring your little amp and let's groove. Practice outside of class is necessary.
