Are you an advanced guitar player? Perhaps you have already completed core electives at NYC Guitar School like Lead Guitar Basics or Fingerstyle Guitar, or you play in our rock bands and take private lessons. Or maybe you've been playing on your own for years, and want to fill in gaps and continue to progress--or even just to spend time in the company of other motivated and advancing guitarists.
Our top instructors put together a set of 50 essential advanced guitar skills which can be learned in a drop-in structure by any guitar student, provided they've already achieved a basic level of proficiency with barre chords, pentatonic scales, rhythm, etc. This class is your opportunity to
alk to say something like "I just want to feel confident enough to play with other people and take solos" or "I want enough theory mastery that I feel like I can write my own songs."
What you will gain from this class:
confidence in playing with others and taking solos
enough theory mastery to be able to write your own songs or follow chord changes with scale changes
a deeper understanding of the fretboard
improved technical execution--and the ability to play under pressure
Each class includes:
a consistent warm up workout to reinforce fundamentals and to build camaraderie between students, including rhythm, ear-training, fretboard, picking and fingering drills and improvising
explanation and demonstration of an advanced guitar skill
step by step exercises to build capabilities and understanding
the application of that skill in the context of a song including improvisation and rhythm
And there are multiple class sessions per week so you can come at the day and time that is best for you--or even better, come several times per week!
This class is for advanced students only. Take the quiz to see if you qualify for a free trial--or find out what you need to study next no matter what level student you are.
