Beginning Guitar Theory
Don Murdoch

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".
