In this lesson we'll use the same type of progression but change the key so we can practice a different set of chords on different root strings. Start with an E major 7 rooted on the A string. Then play a C# minor 7 also rooted on the A string. Next, change to an A major 7 rooted on the D string. Finally play an F# minor 7 rooted on the D string.

This is the chord progression for this lesson.

E major 7 (1 measure) (I) C# minor 7 (1 measure) (vi) E major 7 (1 measure) (I) C# minor 7 (1 measure) (vi) A major 7 (1 measure) (IV) F# minor 7 (1 measure) (ii) A major 7 (1 measure) (IV) F# minor 7 (1 measure) (ii)

We'll also try the strumming variation in which we rhythmically separate the bass note from the rest of the chord.
