Conclusion of Lesson 7: chords: A, A7, Am, C, C7, D, D7 (2 forms), F, G, G7. Strums: single, double, ChattaNOOga. Key of C basic chords: C, F, G/G7, Am
Last week, the two forms of D7 were introduced: the Hawaiian and the bar, or barre, version. We will mostly be using the barred form. A video was sent you to practice getting your bar strong. More barred chords will follow: Bm, B7, alternate forms for C7, etc. AND, we worked a lot on the ChattaNOOga, which is such a valuable strum pattern, maybe the best one you can have in your tool belt!
This week we will learn the A chord, plus the A7. You’ll see how A7, Am, and A are quite chummy. Please download (if you haven’t already) Jingle Bells, Frosty the Snowman, Come Back Lisa, Take Me Home, San Juan Islands.
