Basic Blues & Rock

Subject classification: this is a music resource.

Welcome to the Wikiversity Rock & Blues Garage, part of the School of Music and home of the Garage Band. Get ready to Rock!

Department description edit

Participants study the basic Blues patterns, the elements of Rock & Roll, Hard Rock, Headbanging, Jamming, Establishing a Groove, and other Garage Band traditions.

Learning Projects edit

See: Learning Projects and the Wikiversity:Learning model.

Portals edit


Learning materials and learning projects are located in the main Wikiversity namespace. Simply make a link to the name of the learning project (learning projects are independent pages in the main namespace) and start writing!

We're going to be using learning project template, ({{subst:Template:Learning project}}) to build our new:

Collaborations edit

Lessons edit

Remember, Wikiversity has adopted the "learning by doing" model for education. Lessons should center on learning activities for Wikiversity participants. We learn by doing.

Sessions edit

We're going to customize Learning project codes, by adding "sessions":

These will probably be made from templates of some sort that work through a w:Tablature system that we'll have to come up with. The current session will be in the section Garage below and on Topic talk:Basic Blues & Rock.

If everything goes according to plan, we should be able to produce actual audio files. See The Future: Native Firefox ogg Support and Internet Audio and Video.

Sweeping the garage... chill for a bit

Meanwhile, you can read Introduction to GarageBand

To do edit

Lots of things to do

See: Naming conventions

Chores edit

Wikiversity is really new and plenty of mundane chores need to be done:

Lists edit

We need a list of lists:

  1. genres
  2. instruments
  3. artists
  4. ...

We can draw on Wikipedia for most all of this but we need to decide what to include in the Wikiversity main namespace.

Active participants edit

User subpages edit

We're going to make this section a bit more accomodating to the Musician ego. We would like to ask participants to create a subpage to their userpage with a format that includes links to instrument you play (or want to learn) – Guitar, Bass, Drums, Saxophone, etc. Instrument articles should be in the main namespace. If not create one!

You should also indicate styles and influences: w:Beatles, w:Pink Floyd, w:Electronica, w:Delta Blues, etc. If you have your own website, you can of course list that, too, but see the next section.

If you are a member of a Music or related WikiProject at Wikipedia, you can show that also.

Once we come up with a format, we'll do a template like {{MusicStudent}} or something. Meanwhile just introduce yourself on the talk page.

Someday, we may form the Wikiversity Gargage Band!
