Beginning Guitar 101: Lesson #5- Changing Between A and E chords


Changing Between A and E chords 

This is the next in my series, Begininng Guitar 101. In the last one we played the E chord and the A chord. Now we’re going to practice changing. Play that E chord, play the A chord, back to the E chord and play the A chord. Now let’s do two strums each, A then to the E, back to A and E, A, E, A and E.

Let’s Add A Very Simple Strum

Instead of just straight down, we’re going to go down, down, up. On the E chord, down, down, up. Do it. This is on the A chord, ready, go. Back to the E chord and the A chord. Now we go back and forth. I’ll do one, two full strums, that’s actually four beats. One, two, three, four. That’s four beats. The down, up makes one beat. Then we’re going to switch to the next chord, they’re on the E, ready, go. The A, back to E, and A, E, and A, the E, and then on the A, watch for that. Good.

See you next time!
