Module 3 Lesson 1 Module 2 Lesson 4a

Practice the forward & backward roll on all the chords you have learned so far,

Am  C  D  A  E  and  F Major 7

till it is very fluid and making sure all the notes of the chords are clear, no buzzing or dead notes

The timing (Beat) is to be even

1  2  3  4  5  6 ~ 1  2  3  4  5  6 ~ 1  2  3  4  5  6 ...etc

Accent on Thumb.  (Make the thumb sound a little stronger/louder than the fingers.)

3a - Understanding the Chord Diagrams

4d - Preparation for your first tune

Practice the forward & backward roll

( T. 1. 2. 3. 2. 1. )

using the chord *progression shown below:

Am.   C.   D.   F Maj7.   Am.    E.   E.

Use the picking pattern once per chord, then change chord to the next chord.

Try to keep the timing as even as possible: ( 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. ).    

Pick pattern ( T. 1. 2. 3. 2. 1. )

 Notice the chord of E is played twice

These are the first chords to the song "House of the Rising Sun"

The intention is not to sound like the song yet but to just get the finger mechanics working and try to close the gap between chord changes

* A chord progression is a group of chords

  that make a tune or song.
