Advanced/Intermediate guitar - The actual content of the advanced classes is left up to the individual instructor, but Frank's classes will focus on accompanying Irish dance tunes, in DADGAD tuning, using a flatpick. However, Frank is an excellent singer and a great song arranger. Depending on the makeup of the classes and student interest, he'll spend time as well on creating guitar accompaniment for songs.

Guidelines for placement in guitar classes

Advanced/Intermediate guitar

We don't offer intro classes in guitar. If you'd like to take Frank Kilkelly's Advanced/Intermediate guitar classes, be aware that he'll be working in DADGAD tuning mostly. If you're already a competent guitarist but new to that tuning, you'll still get a lot out of these classes in terms of learning how to work in DADGAD, as well as principles of rhythm, picking, arranging, etc.
