This course expands the players ability toward the main goal of effectively playing music on the guitar by adding the 5th and 6th strings and engaging music. The player will have the ability to play for their own enjoyment both solos and for and with others.
The course fills out the bass notes on strings 4,5 and 6 and develops the players ability to play an accompaniment pattern with a melody to create complete musical pieces that stand on their own, but in many cases are part of duo or trio that can be played with others.
It also includes the printed music easily visible as PDF files below each video.
