About this course:

This is the Orange Rock Guitar Foundation course.

It takes you from a complete beginner to Grade 2. This course will start with the basics, such as how to hold the guitar, before moving onto teaching the fundamentals of rock guitar playing such as how to play open chords, power chords, and how to develop your technical skills through commonly used scales, arpeggios, and chromatic picking exercises. You will also learn basic sight reading skills and aural skills. All throughout the course you will learn supporting theory that will allow you to really understand exactly what it is you are playing.
