NYC Beginners Guitar Orchestra (2 Hours)

Beginners are welcome! Just come and I'll have a part for you to play!

Requirements are:

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..., so bring your own portable amp or an acoustic bass!

SONGS: "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana, "Ziggy Stardust" by David Bowie and "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" by The Beatles

GUITAR 1: Simple accompaniment; ideal for beginners playing 3 years or less; open chords, power chords and simple bass lines.

GUITAR 2: Melody and add-ons; ideal for players comfortable with rhythm involving eighth notes, eighth rests, basic lead skills, comfortable with strumming.

GUITAR 3: Solo and fxs; ideal for players comfortable with lead guitar, sixteenth notes, ties, slides, bends, hammer ons/pull offs and able to manage their instrument levels, fx pedals and dynamics.

Charts are uploaded under "More" tab> "Files"
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!

What to do:
Choose your part and start getting familiar with the song structure (also uploaded as a pic)

Show up to practice and have fun!
