1/ How to make a guitar “ Celtic” - overview of guitar tunes and ornamentation
2/ Altered States - an overview to get people started on altered guitar tunings including DADGAD (I get asked to do this one the most.)
3/ Accompanying songs with others - for those who want to accompany singers. - Great for the person who maybe adds some vocal harmony but accompanying is their main thing.
4/ Accompanying tunes - looking at alternatives to the chords on the sheet music (not really for beginner players).
5/ Strumming styles/techniques for the right hand - a very practical but useful way to look at strumming the guitar with a flatpack, fingers or both - getting past the same old up/down patterns. A good one for basic strummers.
