NYC Beginners Guitar Orchestra Practice and New Riffs!

Come this Saturday to practice our songs and get started on a new ROCK RIFF MEDLEY including: SMOKE ON THE WATER, EYE OF THE TIGER, DON'T STOP BELIEVING, BAD TO THE BONE AND WALK THIS WAY (charts are uploaded)

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

Get your Fall Season Pass Here:

($176 good for Saturdays through 12/21)

BASS PLAYERS: ...there will be no bass amps..., so bring your own portable amp or an acoustic bass!


"Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana, 

"Ziggy Stardust" by David Bowie and 

"While My Guitar Gently Weeps" by The Beatles

"Sunshine of Your Love" by Cream

"Back In Black" by AC/DC

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.

BASS: Unique bass line for the song

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!

We just had our first performance at Funkadelic on 09/21/13 (and it was amazing!)
