Beginning Guitar Theory
This will be a short introduction of theory as applied
to the guitar, with a brief introduction to the harmonized major scale,
primarily using the D chord shape to demonstrate what specific intervals
make up the various types of chords. Don will have a detailed handout
to refer to (mostly for later study on your own). This workshop is potentially
helpful to players who are at least a little beyond beginning, up to
intermediate and even more advanced players.
Don has been around the folk club for about 9 years and has been playing
songs on the guitar for about 40 years. For the past 5 years, he has
been learning to actually PLAY the guitar (through private lessons),
and learning guitar theory along with the "caged system".
