Now we have our idea of using two positions: the E and the A chords. In this lesson we are going to focus on getting back and forth between them. If you can't get from one chord to the next in enough time, then leave off a little bit of one!

The idea here is to start playing the next chord on time.

So leave off, for example, a beat of notes at the end of one measure. Then move your fingers over to the next set of strings to prepare for the arrival of the next chord. Then start playing that next chord as you count "1" for the next measure to start.
