For POST-BEGINNER GUITARISTS who know basic chord changes, can play a few songs, and want to train their ear and understand the nuts and bolts of music better.
If you're a beginning guitarist who's just starting out, please consider joining the Southbay Acoustic Musicians, who offer great beginner classes that prepare you for the Del Rey Acoustic's next level of instruction.
Meetups will provide instruction on ear training, scales, chord progressions, recognizing song structure, etc., without getting into complicated music theory. Emphasis will be placed on taking what you're hearing and translating it visually to your fingertips and fretboard. Once you train your ear, a lot of possibilities open up to you.
The organizer is a guitarist, bassist, flautist and vocalist with live performance experience and an extensive professional training background. He knows how to pace instruction to keep things moving, but is as patient and supportive an instructor as you'll meet.
