As we go through our guitar unit in 5th and 6th grade I hope to add some interesting and useful information here. For now, if you have a guitar at home and need some help tuning, you can use this tuner. Just press the note of the string you want to tune and match the sound with your guitar.
Chord Fingering Diagrams
(These diagrams feature full chords - not the one-finger chords that we started with in class)
This Land Is Your Land (by Woody Guthrie)
Show your parents that you can play along with Woody Guthrie's famous tune! Get your guitar ready, press play, and then play along with the music! Play four strums per measure.
For more practice, you should purchase your own copy of the book that we used in class. Click on the title to take you to a site where you could purchase it (or go to a local music shop and ask them to order it for you).
