The aim of the course is to give students a theoretical and practical grounding so that they can learn to play the various types of accompaniment and melodies which are typical of tango and Argentine folk music. Students will discover the “rasgueados” along with the typical zambas, chacareras, gatos etc.
In addition to the prescribed repertoire students will also have the opportunity to propose their own pieces. The guitar will thus be discovered from a different perspective with a particular emphasis on tango and folk dance.
