Swing Guitar

Looking to liven up your chords? This is a class for you! In this class we will be looking at some simple swing songs and their chord structures. The gypsy swing guitar style may sound very complex, but it is actually about taking notes out of the chords as we would traditionally play them, and instead voicing them on the bass strings. Thus by learning just a handful of new three note chord shapes, you can access a much more sophisticated sounding chordal accompaniment to even the most simple song.  We will be building upon the basics of the CAGED approach that most people are familiar with, and although we will definitely be looking at some aspects of theory, specifically relating to how we build chords, this is a practical class and we will be playing songs using new shapes from the get go. Swing Guitar is taught by Sophia Johnson.
