Children's Guitar - Week 6
3 weeks 5 days ago #9135
In the last guitar class for children we discussed the following:
First. I Reviewed the major scale and I explained how the scale relates to chords and melody lines.
Second, the children were placed in groups (in the Jupiter class only) to work on chord forms. Each student strummed the guitar using the chords A,C, G, E and D. The bass notes were used for each chord.
The groups then played one of their melody lines. Since the boys did not practice their melody lines, they were offered the opportunity to strum while the girls played the melody line to Row Row Your Boat.
Next week I would like to see all the students playing a melody line in class.
Please print out the song Ode To Joy. We will start this song next week.
