Two new chords
1. Each chord uses different fingers.
2. Only strum the three high sounding strings – try not
to strum any of the low strings.
3. Check the sound of each string by forming the
chord and then picking each string in the chord to
make sure that the string rings clearly. Don’t race
across the strings. Take your time to listen to each
string before you move to the next string.
If the string does not ring clearly you could be –
(a) not squeezing hard enough.
(Don’t squeeze too hard either).
(b) pressing your finger on the fret
metal and not behind it.
(c) letting a finger fall over and touch
another string.
Here are some exercises to play. Take notice of the
changing hints given. Play each exercise a few times
– not just once.
