Beginning Guitar – Carolyn Huguenin

Prerequisites: Basic understanding of the guitar, string names, and how to hold a pick.

Materials Needed: Picks, tuner, notebook, and a recording device. A music stand might be helpful but not necessary.

This class is for those interested in learning to back up fiddle players. However, the class can also be used to gain basic knowledge you can take on your own learning path. We will be going over all the basic
chords and 3 types of strum patters to go along with fiddle playing. We will touch on some theory about which chords go together to help you predict where you might go next when accompanying or jamming.
By the end of class, you will be able to back-up fiddle tunes like Boil the Cabbage Down and Edelweiss. Some homework will be given since chord changes must be practiced to improve change speed. Chord
charts, chords for tunes, and other useful information will be provided. I love questions and will answer them to the best of my ability and if I don’t know, I will find out! *Materials and instruction may change
based on the general needs of the class.
