Who: Alex will be leading the Meetup. He is a guitar teacher and has been professional performer based in Tokyo for so long he’s almost embarrassed to say. He loves helping out people become the guitarists they want to be. We’ll also be welcoming YOU, you crazy wonderful cool guitar meetup members! Don’t worry if you think you’re level isn’t good enough, we have worked hard at building a supportive, helpful and friendly community who want you to improve your guitar skills!
Details: In this meetup we'll be learning chords to learn new intermediate level songs. We'll also split into groups and work on solos based on what you know and you level. We'll then have a group jam and you can show off what new tricks you have learned. This is a super supportive and friendly group and so this is a great chance to play with other guitarists, learn new tricks and swap ideas. We're all looking forward to seeing you!
