Our Model: 

Everyone who comes along can choose 2/3 songs from the existing catalogue (or new ones) if they wish.  The criteria for choice will be as follows:
Song 1. A 3 chord rock and roll/blues/country song from 50's/60's (easy to play and learn)
Song 2. A well known song from any era. (a bit harder to play)
Song 3. A 'joker' eg a more difficult or obscure song. (something to exercise the brain as well as the fingers)

We'll find clips of the songs and other info and post them on a Guitar Session page on this site so everyone can familiarise themselves with them.

We will then spend 4-6 sessions working on those and perhaps get to a stage where we can record/perform them at the end of the cycle. After that we go through the same process with another set of songs for the next 4-6 sessions.


Yes, well, we wish it was really like this!!
