Great, I have been taking private lessons for a month now and my instructor has yet to show me the chromatic scale or any basic chords. I'm really starting to wonder what I have been paying for.
Good stuff Brad!
Having trouble with F cord seeing him how he did it, i will try it his way now. Slight slant to the #1 finger
HIs A cord shape makes it much easier to change from the three cords, Great Job!
never even thought about this great advice
Simple chord progressions using different rhythms but keeping the patterns consistent was very helpful.
Very overlooked area or guitar! First lesson I ever watched on Jamplay and glad I did.
