Description:  This class is a continuation of Guitar 1B. Students will really be ramping up their guitar skills in this class! In addition to some fun new, more advanced tunes, students will learn some other new tricks, such as playing in 3/4 time, new back-up techniques, and some new chords. This class will also take a look at some very simple theory and site reading.
