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!


Cheers!

    Hey guys, I found two places where the band could rehearse between 2 and 8pm (after rehearsal from 12-2) within a mile of w48 th street. These are the locations; 120 park ave and 550 Madison ave. we could walk here, get lunch around the area and then practice and take breaks in between until around 7pm and then for the last hour just rest and start heading back to the venue to set up. If you interested and want more info shoot me a text at[masked]
