Whether you’re just picking up the guitar for the first time or you just want to brush up on your skills, the Guitar Techniques specialization created by Berklee College of Music will help you practice the techniques you need to bring your playing to the next level.
Throughout this 16-week specialization, you’ll lay a firm foundation by learning and practising major, minor, and pentatonic scales as well as triads and chords.
