from 89.00

Instructor: Brendan Hannigan

This class meets Thursdays 5:00-6:00 pm

If you took our fall blues-guitar intro class, or if you have some basic blues knowledge, here’s a great opportunity to sharpen your skills and to take them to the next level. Our Blues II class is designed to build on basic skills to take that exciting next step in our blues journey.

In this course, we’ll thoroughly review the basics of blues rhythm and lead guitar playing. We’ll then expand on that knowledge with some juicy, new chord forms, some classic blues intros, endings, and transitions, and a more ambitious approach to blues soloing. This course will leave you well-equipped to play thousands of classic blues tunes like a pro.
