 Improvers Guitar – with Mike Dick (GT2 Online) & John Newman (GT3 In College)

This class is for existing GFW Guitar members and new members who are already comfortable playing Guitar.

At the GFW we like to play together and that's what this improvers guitar class is designed to do.  Improve your finger-picking accompaniment to songs, learn to strum along to fiddle tunes, try out some modern styles of playing, play our tunes in a flat-picking style - but most of all have a good time playing along with other musicians. 

  Improvers Guitar may split into 2 classes when student numbers are too large for a single class.
