Rhythm Guitar for Singers with Bobby Winstead

This class will meet online - an invitation to a recurring Zoom meeting will be sent by the instructor in advance of the first class meeting.

In this class, we will cover:

  • rhythm guitar techniques for folk songs, particularly the boom-chuck strumming pattern
  • alternate strumming techniques for certain songs
  • application of skills to song repertoire
  • singing and playing at the same time
  • intro to fingerpicking
  • intro to flatpicking and alternate picking
  • ear training and relevant theory

Prerequisites:

  • Guitar 1 or 2
  • Ability to tune
  • Familiarity with basic strumming with a pick
  • Familiarity with chords G, C, D, A, E, B7, am, em, dm, F
  • Reading chord diagrams
  • Using a metronome

Students will need access to a computer with Zoom, including a microphone and camera - or a smart phone.  Short video assignments will be used each week to allow the instructor to give individual attention to each student.  A Google Classroom page will be available to students to receive materials from the teacher, communicate throughout the week, and keep track of assignments.
