"We'll spend a little time on various guitar techniques, but I will also take you through the steps you'll need to take to play Scott Joplin piano rags on the guitar. From thumb and finger independence, otherwise known as "Travis picking" and branching out into more classical technique by marrying the two, we are able to play the guitar as a more pianistic instrument. As opposed to "Ragtime guitar", this is "Ragtime piano on the guitar." In order to do this, will also spend some time on all important ear training and the discipline of having specific goals when practicing."
