In this course, students work on understanding more complicated rhythms as well as exploring higher positions on the neck of the guitar. Students learn bar chord shapes, finger picking, and many common chord progressions. Students are introduced to jazz concepts in addition to classical and current literature. Electric bassists can be accommodated in this course, but they are required to learn some guitar basics. Home practice is required.
