Have a guitar lying around somewhere that’s feeling neglected?
Wish you used it a bit more?
Or maybe you’ve learnt a few simple chords but would like to be able to play a couple of songs right through?
Then you might be interested in the new guitar for fun group that we’re setting up. The idea is that it’s not formal tuition, so there are no lessons and we won’t be trying to teach scales, theory, modes and the like; instead it’s simply people getting together to play some well known songs from a songbook that will cover a range of styles. We aim to cover music of artists from the 50s right through to the present day (as long as it’s not too challenging!).
Playing with others is a great way to build on your skills and gain confidence in your playing, and you’ll likely find you learn new skills and techniques just by being with a group of players.
We’re all of very mixed abilities so as long as you know which way up to hold your guitar and maybe a couple of basic chords then you won’t feel out of depth.
We meet twice a month in Vernon House. Our first meeting will be Friday 7th February, and then again on the 21st. The regular pattern will then be for sessions on the first and third Friday of each month.
Come along .. we may even have a spare guitar or two ….
When: First and third Friday of the month
