Supplemental Tips (Lessons 5, 6, and 7)

Thank you for learning with my eBooks… To keep this Blog relevant to the ones in the process of learning, I have a quick tip here for you…

When changing Chords, always look ahead to anticipate the Chord change.  You are looking for the easiest way to get from point A to point B, and sometimes you can just leave a finger in place to anchor the change.

Here is a quick example:

If I am playing a D Major…

DM(1)

And going to a G Major…

GM

Then I am going to anchor my 3rd finger (ring finger) and pivot from it.  (It will never come off the 2nd string.)  And lead with my index finger to the 2nd fret on the 5th string….  my 2nd finger will naturally want to fall the Top string at the 3rd fret.

Or…  I will simply drop it down to the first string as my first move in the process…  anchor it, then proceed to lead with my index finger (1st finger) and let the 2nd finger (middle finger) fall in place.

GM(4)

This tip is for people who are at Part 3 in the Mini Lessons Series or are at Lesson 5, 6 and 7 in the 10 Easy Lessons eBook.

If you are yet to start, you can always find the Tips archived in the drop down menu in the side bar.
