Adding A Better Strum

In this lesson, we’ll build on what you’ve learned already, and add a more interesting strum pattern so this progression begins to sound more like a song.

If you need a refresher on the chords, those diagrams are down below as well.

I am fulfilling a 40 year desire to play guitar

Well I like the fact that you have taken time to think like a beginner... I was just that as of Jan 20, 2016.

I am now a beginner with knowledge about guitar playing... can I play the guitar? No. Do I know chords? Yes, with just a little visual prompting.

I drew out the chord charts on a large piece of cardboard, and kept them in the relative major and minor groups. I took your advice and became creative in my approach.

My problem in this creative journey is muscle memory for the chord shapes... practice practice practice...

I like the fact that you have gone into the exact chords as in Sweet Home Alabama.

Colin I am totally happy with this course... oh what does one do about the left hand calluses? I look forward to the day that I am ready to play blues music. I am also fulfilling a 40 year want - to play guitar, sooo wish I had done this earlier in my life.

Thank you for your time and keep ROCKIN!
