authentic Tango from Buenos Aires

If you are approaching tango guitar for the very first time or even if you already know a few things and you want to delve into them, this is the course for you. It doesn’t matter if you have great skills with the instrument or you just know the basic chords. What matters (according to this course) is your knowledge of tango guitar specifics.

Here you will find everything you need to play like we do in Buenos Aires. You can choose between 3 different types of courses: Essential, Pro and Full. The structure is the same, but the complementary materials vary in each of them. Check them out and choose the one that best suits you!
