Video Lessons > Learn Songs > Level One
 
 
On Music Ala Carte, video online guitar lessons I have developed different sections to offer a variety of learning experiences.
At this point there are two sections and more will be added as time goes on.

In this article I would like to give you some insight about the Learn Songs section.
I have separated Learn Songs into 3 levels;
 
The 1st level consists of songs with 3 or 4 chords and straight forward strum patterns.
Even though the songs in this level  are in several different keys all of the material is  designed
 for the entry level guitar student to accomplish. Different teachers disagree on which chords to start with
when teaching new students so I have included songs in the keys of G, C, D and Em.
I believe the best chords to learn first are G, C & D with the use of the Em added very soon to expand
the availability of new songs. Each of the song lesons have the chords explained in detail and the chord boxes
included with the chord and lyric sheet. If you are interested in learning more about the chords or exploring other chords
you can look under the Lesson Resources tab in the Chord Catalog and check out all the chords used in the songs
Along with all the songs the strum pattern is discussed and shown on the video and with many of the songs
a Strum Pattern sheet is include with the lesson. These strum patterns are discussed and shown so the student can work
on the rhythm aspect of the song as well as the chord pattern.
Along with the chords, chord pattern and strum pattern all the song lessons have a Practice Session video
where the student has a chance to put all the information together and play the song at a slower pace
to practice over all they have learned.
Once the student feels confident with their playing of the song we have an Up-Tempo video
so they play the song at the tempo intended for the song. All videos are 2 to 4 minutes long so the
Practice Session and the Up-Tempo videos may not include the whole song.
 
Once you feel you are ready to play the whole song there is an mp3 available  so you
can play right along with me using all the information you have learned in this song lesson.
Under the Lesson Resources you can find all the songs on Music Als Carte in the Song Library.
So once you have learned several songs you can go right to the Song Library and choose the song
you want to play and have your own jam session with me.
 
 
 
I hope you enjoy learning songs on Music Ala Carte, video online guitar lessons.
