He will then demonstrate how you can put these chords into practice by teaching you 5 cool chord progressions.
Tip: Slow Down! Make sure you are playing these chord progressions very slowly in the beginning. This is very important. The faster you go, the more difficult it will be to change between chords.
You can use any strumming pattern you want with these chord progressions. It really depends on your current skill level.
David uses two in this lesson. A beginner strumming pattern and one that is a little more complex:
- Beginner: DOWN/DOWN/DOWN/DOWN
- Advanced: DOWN/DOWN/ UP/UP/DOWN/UP
Now we add in the 7th chords…
If any of this seems too difficult right now, don’t get frustrated. Just practice these progressions over and over again, nice and slow, until you are able to do it.
