Guitar 2 Repertoire with Carlos Chacon

If you are self taught or have completed Guitar 2, this is the level to repeat as much as you want to build up your songbag. We strongly urge guitar students at this level and above to supplement their studies by taking Guitar Fingerboard Theory. You should know chords A, C, D, E, G, Am, Dm, Em, A7, B7, D7, E7. This class will teach you songs with these and new chords. Students can plan to leave Guitar 2 rep with the following skills: F chord Dm Bm (simple) Bass runs in keys A C D E G Arpeggios in 4/4 3/4 6/8 Simple Scale knowledge Slash chords and bass notes on Strings E A D A developing friendship with the capo The desire to keep playing
