Rock Apprentice 2010

Rock Apprentice – Highway to Hell with Richard Perkins.

If you’re a beginner or an early learner with less than a year’s playing experience, then our Apprentice course could be just what you’re looking for. Focusing on a thorough grounding in playing basics, this course addresses key areas of learning, providing a solid base upon which to build in the future.

Principal areas covered include:

• Harmony – what chords do you need to know and which is the best order to learn them in?

• Melody – the importance of setting up a good fingering regime for all the basic level scales.

• Rhythm – covering song accompaniment, simple riff playing and correct plectrum technique.

The Rock Apprentice course also looks at essential techniques like string bending and vibrato, how to get the very best from your guitar/amplifier combination, as well as the use of effects. The set list includes music by bands such as Cream, AC/DC, Deep Purple, Jimi Hendrix Experience, Queen, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin and more.
