The electric guitar techniques you will cover are:
- Getting a great guitar tone with your amplifier (how it works)
- Playing lead guitar (Pentatonic & Major scales)
- Performing Blues improvisations (Jamming)
- Iconic guitar riffs and solos
- Picking and improving speed and fluidity
- Group performance
The curriculum is class led, the tutor will take requests of songs and techniques at the beginning of the term and implement these into the course content.
This course uses RARPA as its method of assessment.
RARPA stands for Recognising and Recording Progress and Achievement which is the process of assessment for non-accredited learning. It is a means of validating the outcomes of programmes which do not result in qualifications. RARPA is a five-stage process which measures and records learners’ progress, achievements and attendance.
Where can it lead?
We hope that this course will help you develop your skills and confidence to start playing the guitar in public, be it at local jam nights, playing in a band or even recording your own songs. Perhaps you will want to advance your skills and music through further study or become a self-employed musician.
As a Hull Training and Adult Education learner you have access to our Careers Advice Service. Our advisers are on hand to guide you through options and support you to achieve your full potential. Ask your tutor to refer you, if required.
