Learn to play guitar & drums - FREE beginner session
Fri 5 February 2016, 14:00 – 21:00 GMT
Are you a beginner looking to improve as quickly as you can? Are you struggling to change chords fluently? Can you play a few chords but feel like you're stuck in a rut and not improving? Have you tried surfing the web for lessons and ended up overwhelmed and flummoxed? Would you love to learn to play your favourite songs and perhaps even learn how to write some of your own? Starting to play guitar poses a unique set of challenges-even getting a single note out is physically challenging in the beginning
