Start with an A major 7 rooted on the E string. Next is an F# minor 7 also rooted on the E string. Then we'll change to a D major 7 rooted on the A string. Finally a B minor 7 rooted on the A string. We'll try a couple of voicings of the each chord, using some or all of the strings. The minor 7 chords can be played with or without the pinky voicing.
This is the chord progression for this lesson.
A major 7 (1 measure) (I) F# minor 7 (1 measure) (vi) A major 7 (1 measure) (I) F# minor 7 (1 measure) (vi) D major 7 (1 measure) (IV) B minor 7 (1 measure) (ii) D major 7 (1 measure) (IV) B minor 7 (1 measure) (ii)
We'll also try a strumming variation in which we rhythmically separate the bass note from the rest of the chord. Take your time to switch back and forth between the chords as you slowly get better at it. You don't have to play all the voicings and variations I play right away. Simply take your time and learn one at a time and add more when you are ready for it.
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
