Question from anonymous
I know a couple of chords but still extremely new to guitars. Is Guitar II going to be way too advanced for me?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Guitar I students are new to stringed instruments altogether, so by the end, they have mastered 3-4 chords, learned to strum and switch between two chords. You may look up a simple version of the song Jambalaya, by Hank Williams. That is the 3rd song taught in Guitar I. If you can play that slowly, you are ready for Guitar II. Hope this helps!
