Advanced/Intermediate guitar - The actual content of the classes is left up to the individual instructor, but Frank's classes will focus on accompanying Irish dance tunes using a flatpick. However, Frank is an excellent singer and a great song arranger. Depending on the makeup of the classes and student interest, he'll spend time as well on creating guitar accompaniment for songs. Frank plays mostly in Dropped D tuning (standard tuning with the lowest string dropped to D) but will also explore the use of DADGAD tuning.

Guidelines for placement in guitar classes
