Ok, you’ve learned your chords, you even have a couple of scales under your belt! Now what do you do with them? Put them to use in a cool and fun way! This course will examine and then apply the basic elements of jamming with another musician, sitting in with a group, or “noodling/improvising” over someone’s song live or in the studio. If you were ever blown away by watching folks jam together, and sat back wishing you could participate, this class is great for you. Who plays “lead”? Who plays “rhythm”? What is “lead”, what is “rhythm” anyway? And most importantly, what do we play together? Chord theory and scale theory all in one, we’ll be doing more playing than anything in class! This will be a jammin’ class! We will also look at charts – cheat sheets – these things may be presented to a group when jamming, I’ll help you understand how to find your way through this roadmap of music/song! Group Jam! Let’s play!
