We'll start with the basics: Notes and terminology - using multiple graphics and views of the material to make sure nobody gets left behind or lost. We'll cover how to read sheet music, where the notes go, and share practice sheets for you to use your new skill with!
We then dive into playing two notes at a time, what a chord is, and how to play any chord in the world - which unlocks any song in the world! After the basic chord shapes, we'll cover variations of chords with root notes, suspended chords and slash chords. Finally, we'll cover how to use the pedal at your feet to aid your playing!
