This follow-up workshop to our Guitar for Absolute Beginners is also suitable for beginners who may have been playing for a while but would like some extra help in moving on.

This workshop concentrates on how to use chords and scales to play songs. It covers strumming and finger-picking techniques. You’ll learn about open, closed and bar chords and approaches to playing ‘movable’ shapes, chord types (focusing on major, minor and seven(th) chords).

We also cover plectrums and types that suit you, tab notation and how it relates to standard music notation, and also how and why to use a capo. To take part in this workshop you should know how to tune your guitar, the names of the strings and be able to play most, if not all, of the following chords: G, C, D, D7, A, Am, G7, E, Em, B7. You should should also know the 12 chromatic notes and how to make up a major scale from them (the 2-2-1-2-2-2-1 or T-T-S-T-T-T-S rule).

Contact education@stables.org if you have any questions about your experience or suitability for this workshop. Please bring a guitar (acoustic preferred), guitar tuner and a capo.
