Sammanfattning

Syftet med denna studie var att utforska, analysera och beskriva elgitarrelevers upplevelser av ensemblespel på gymnasiets estetiska program. Som metod valdes att genomföra kvalitativa intervjuer med fyra elgitarrister för att se hur deras upplevelser skiljer sig åt. Studien utgår från ett hermeneutiskt perspektiv, men informanterna utgör också ett representativt urval av såväl kvinnliga som manliga elgitarrelever för att intervjusvaren ska kunna tolkas i ett genusperspektiv. I resultatet visas att alla elever är positiva till och vill spela gitarrsolo, men några informanter känner att det är svårt att ta rätt mängd ”musikalisk plats” inom ensemblen. Det skiljer sig mellan informanterna hur stora utmaningar de önskar ha och hur mycket egen förberedelse de önskar innan lektionerna. Viktiga slutsatser kan vara att eleverna gärna spelar låtar på ensemblen där deras instrument har en aktiv och viktig roll för att känna meningsskapande, samtliga elever tror att om de lär sig hitta över hela halsen så kommer de kunna spela bättre solo. Tjejerna i studien efterfrågar fler kvinnliga gitarrister som förebilder.

Summary

The purpose of this study was to investigate, analyze and describe the experiences of electric guitar students playing in an ensemble setting in the upper secondary school arts program. In order to achieve this purpose I interviewed four electric guitar students to see how their experiences differed. The study is based on a hermeneutic perspective, in which a representative sample of both female and male electric guitar students where chosen in order to account for differences experienced across genders. The results show that all students are positive and want to take a guitar solo, but some informants feel that it is difficult to take the right amount of "musical space" in the ensemble. The extent of the challenge students are willing to take on and the degree of self-preparation perceived to be necessary before entering the ensemble sessions and taking a solo differs amongst informants. Important conclusions include that students like to play songs in which their instrument has an active and important role so that they feel they are making a meaningful contribution to the ensemble. Furthermore, all students believe that if they learn to find their way all over the neck they will be able to play a better solo. The girls in the study feel that they lack contemporary female role models that play guitar.
