Intermediate Guitar: Playing Lead and Rhythm Guitar Up the Neck @ Tucson Jewish Community Center
Sep 26 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Have you hit a wall in your playing?  Trapped in the first 3 frets of the guitar?  This class will break you out of that, and have you playing lead and rhythm guitar all over the neck.  Class will be blues heavy, with it being understood that jazz, rock and country can be approached in much the same way.  Movable chords, pentatonic scales and the ability to use them are still some of the most important tools in a guitar player’s tool case.
