Intro to Swing Guitar



TERM 1, 2022

INSTRUCTOR: Evan Kinney (bio)
DAY/TIME: Wed – 7pm, In-person only

If you know the basic chords on your guitar, you are ready to try some easy swing music. With the same three finger jazz shapes system used by many all time greats such as Eddie Lang and Django Reinhardt we can navigate up the guitar neck without bar chords!  You’ll learn the “sock style” pick stroke that provides the rhythm pocket for Western Swing.  Along the way we’ll also cover some uke type tenor chords, and explain basic theory on some swing classics.

So if you are versed in playing guitar and want to learn a new style, here’s the class for you!

This class is an in-person class only. No computer capabilities are available.
