Beginners are welcome! Just come and I'll have a part for you to play!
- You must bring your guitar (acoustic or electric; you must bring your own practice amp or small battery operated ok)
- You must be able to follow one of the 3 charts (tablature or standard notation) - we'll go over each one multiple times until everyone is comfortable with its own part.
- You must know the very basics of your instrument
BASS PLAYERS: sorry...there will be no bass amps..., however you can join if you play an acoustic bass.
SONGS: "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana, "Ziggy Stardust" by Bowie, "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" by THe Beatles

There is sheet music (tablature and standard notation) for each of the 3 guitar parts as well as mp3s for practice. The audio is from MIDI so, don't panic, it will sound way better with real guitars!
