My course will cover fundamental playing techniques for Acoustic and Slide Guitar. This includes understanding scales, learning and applying chords, practicing left and right-hand techniques, working with chromatic scales, cross-picking, and alternate picking. Additionally, the course delves into Indian classical music concepts, providing knowledge of Ragas, a detailed understanding of their nuances, and guidance on playing compositions and Taans. Students will also explore the concept of Tala, learn how to play Sahaja Bhajan, gain an understanding of musical notation, and bridge their knowledge of Indian music with Western music.
