CHANGING TO THE NEW CHORD EARLY
The two bar strum patterns where you tie the
last up strum are also used for changing to the
new chord early. Instead of waiting for the
normal count 1 to change you can change on the
& of count 4 from the previous bar. This is
effective and gives the chord changes a “push”
or “drive”.
Some songs will show you this early change by
writing the new chord above the end of the
previous bar. Other times you can use the early
change to dress up any chord change.
