Newk Lesson #11, July 21, 2016

After Lesson #11, you’ll have A,A7, Am, Bb, B7, C, C7, D, D7, Dm, E7, Em, G, G dim, G7.

Piney Wood Hills has a G dim (aka: G dim 7, G° ) which we’ll learn and also practice a  waltz strum for Piney.  We’ll spend some time exercising the change from G to Em using our pinky as an option for this chord change.  Other diminished chords will be introduced  in a couple of weeks or so.

Another new chord for today: E7; so download She’ll Be Comin’ Round The Mountain and Sway to learn E7.  Sway is a mambo, but the same calypso strum introduced a couple weeks ago: D, D-U, U-D-U can be used in that song.  There’s a melody to play on the A string for Sway, so this song can also be as an intro to tablature.  Please download Tabs for Sway: Verse Melody from the Music Archives.
