STRINGALONG WEEKEND CLASSES SATURDAY/SUNDAY, OCTOBER 25-26
You may choose a total of three classes, one from each Track (all Track A classes meet at the same time as each other; same for Tracks B and C). Each of your three classes will meet three times during the weekend, for one hour each time, continuing on from the previous session (see Schedule).

ABBREVIATIONS:

  • Beg. = Beginning: All you need is a willingness to learn and an instrument (unless it says it's provided). You need not have ever tried to play anything before.
  • Adv-Beg = Advanced Beginning: You know how to tune your instrument. You know hand positions and a few chords or, if it's a melody instrument, you can play a simple scale slowly. Maybe you can play “Twinkle Twinkle.”
  • Int. = Intermediate: You know basic chords and can move between chords with ease. You can read some tabulature and know how to use a capo. Or, if it's a melody instrument, you are beginning to read notes or play by ear and can play several easy tunes up to speed.
  • Int/Adv. = Intermediate & Advanced: Same as Intermediate but you also know more difficult chords. You may know several tunings for your instrument. You can play some solos up to speed. You are able to focus on style and want to expand your repertoire.
