Why take this course and how much time does it take to complete?

You've just been strumming chords and that is getting stale and repetitive but now you will mix individual notes and strums. You've been stuck on the same old strumming patterns but now you'll play arpeggios. You've been playing guitar but you really don't know anything about music and you're limited to the first few frets on the guitar you are held back by your limited chord vocabulary and you have acrofretphoboa (fear of higher frets). In this 10 week course you will learn the musical alphabet, you'll learn how to find notes and use them to build slash chords and even to move up the fretboard. You'll also learn what scales are and get your first taste of the pentatonic scale which is the foundation for thousands of iconic guitar solos.

Do I need any previous guitar experience?

Yes! This class is for students who are familiar with basic open chords including 4 finger chords such as Gadd5, Cadd9, etc, basic 8th note and 16th note alternate strumming patterns and right hand techniques like the palm mute and scratching, and who can play some songs all the way through. (If you don't yet know 4 finger chords, 16th note strumming, etc. then take Guitar for Near Beginners first.)
