    Course Details

    This beginners course will initially introduce students to the guitar, its components and the right posture when holding a guitar. Further on, students will be taught to play a set of notes on the guitar, otherwise termed as ‘chords’. Once the students familiarise with chords they will be trained on rhythm, meaning regular repeated pattern or flow of sound. After the students have acclimated to playing rhythm, they are then introduced to leads and taught to play single note lines without using chords instead depending on solos and licks. A lick, or riff, is a short piece of guitar work that is often repeated through the verse and chorus. After the student is familiarised with leads, chords and rhythm, the student gets to choose 3 songs from a list of twenty, comprising western, Indian and instrumental songs to practise in the guidance of the teacher. The student can also suggest a song that interests him and learns to play it on the guitar, seeking guidance from the tutor.

    If the student wants to learn more insights on the Basic's of guitar like chords, rhythm, plucking, fingerstyle picking, Here is another course tailored by Shantanu Arora: Guitar Basics For Bloomers | Guitar Lessons For Beginners Online
