Have you ever wanted to have a go on the guitar but are not sure where to start? Or maybe you’d like to buy one but you’re not sure what tolook for?
This workshop aims to give absolute beginners a great starting point, with lots of information and advice, including how to start playing and practicing, and advice on buying a guitar and avoiding costly mistakes. You’ll learn about the different parts of the guitar, tuning, ‘open’ chords, understanding ‘tab’, using a capo, and how to strum to simple songs, as well as useful non-playing exercises to help develop playing technique.
There will be a small amount of playing on the day at a level suitable for absolute beginners, but the workshop is mainly about giving you information to help you understand the guitar and decide what you would like to do next. If you have a guitar, bring it along. Some guitars will be available for you totry on the day.
