Jan 9 @ 5:45 pm - 6:40 pm

$107 – $312
Instructor: Eric Knutson

Price: $312 for 12 weeks
Thursdays, 1/9/20 – 3/26/20
5:45pm – 6:40pm
Description: Students will begin by learning how to use the pentatonic scale to improvise over chord changes. Next, the class will learn all 5 pentatonic patterns and how they fit together to make the fretboard make sense. With that framework in place, the class will focus on building a “vocabulary” of useful riffs from popular solos (instructor will be open to suggestions from the students here) and how they fit into the pentatonic system, allowing the student to repurpose the riffs for use in other improvisatory moments and jumpstart their ability to solo.

Prerequisite:
Experience playing some scales/melodies/riffs very helpful. A solid foundation in strumming basic chords and playing with others encouraged.

What students will need:
  • Functional guitar (bridge and all 6 strings intact, tuners in working order)
  • Pick
  • Tuner
  • Notebook & pencil
  • Recording device optional

If paying in full doesn’t work for your budget, you can pay in monthly installments.  Pay for your first month below, and we’ll send an invoice for the remaining payments.
