Blues and Rock Guitar

227 TUTOR: Sean Carter

From the laid back acoustic musings of Eric Clapton's Unplugged to the rock of Jimi Hendrix, the guitar has been, without doubt, the most important instrument in the genres of blues and rock music over the last 60 years. This course will give you a grounding in the skills needed to play blues and rock music on the guitar. It caters for you if you have been playing for a couple of years and wish to learn more chords, scales and how to improvise, improve your technique and harmonic knowledge or maybe just wish to have some fun learning new repertoire and playing with other course members. Acoustic and electric guitars are welcome as well as singer-guitarists.
