MUS* 141 or permission of instructor.

This course is a continuation of Guitar I. Through the study of classic solo and ensemble pieces that gradually increase the sophistication and difficulty, we will continue the learning of musical notation and general music theory as it applies to guitar performance. Continued emphasis of left and right hand technique, good practice habits, and performance etiquette will be stressed. In this course, we will advance our understanding of the fingerboard into fifth (V) position and will study music and chord development in keys other than C major. We will also expand our working knowledge of harmony to extend into 7th chords, introduce standard jazz repertoire and practice basic improvisation through the study of keys/modes and diatonic scale relationships.  All MUS* courses satisfy the Fine Arts requirement.
