Meet The Guitar
Let’s Play Guitar!
The guitar is one of the world’s most popular and versatile instruments. Just try to think of more than three styles of music that don’t include a guitar! The guitar can be faster to learn than many instruments and there are a variety of ways to even read guitar music to make it easier. Guitar is very portable, which has helped it become the go-to instrument for campfires and casual playing. Probably the main reason guitar is so loved is because it is COOL! Nearly all popular music from Rock N Roll to the Blues relies upon the signature sound of the guitar. We want to make the guitar your go-to instrument. Come out and give it a try with us!

What Is the Difference Between an Electric and Acoustic Guitar?
Electric guitar allows you to plug in and rock out. Acoustic is the singer-songwriter’s trusty companion. If the electric guitar is a whisky straight up, the acoustic is a hot cozy latte. Who do you want to be today? There is a guitar for every feeling. Ultimately, the instrument plays basically the same, and the difference, apart from the technical, comes down mostly to tone, style, and whether it can be plugged in to an amp.
Why Should You Give Guitar a Try?
The guitar is versatile, it is portable and it is cool, and you CAN do it. Imagine playing in a band with your friends or other Tribemates.

This is all possible. There’s some work to it but there is also a whole lot of fun to be had. Grab your guitar, join your Tribe, and let’s learn your first song this month!
