Event description
Love Songs in Spanish with Guitar Accompaniment

About this Event

In this course you will learn to back yourself up on guitar while singing songs in Spanish. I will teach beginner and intermediate versions of guitar accompaniment for a variety of Latin American song forms, including bolero, cumbia, ranchera, polka, vals peruano and rumba. Each week of the series you’ll learn to accompany and sing (yes, at the same time!) one well-known song from the region emphasizing a different style of backup guitar, including strumming patterns, bass lines, and perhaps a lead riff or two. Students should be familiar with the basic open chords A, Am, B7, C, D, Dm, E, Em, and G.

Structured as a complement to the Love Songs in Spanish series, the rhythms and accompaniment styles - if not always the songs themselves - will overlap with material taught in the original series. Students enrolled in both courses simultaneously will have the opportunity to learn additional song repertoire, depending on their interests and needs.
