We have three new guitar practice sessions that will teach the beginner how to go about learning a new chord progression. By breaking the progression down into isolated sections, you can make the whole process easier to learn. The progression you will learn features the D, Cadd9, and G chords.
In the first session, you will learn how to play the chords and change between them. The second video will cover making the chord changes in time. We’ll start with playing the chords for two beats, resting for two beats while you switch to the next chord, and then playing the new chord for two beats. As you practice along with the video, Peter will slowly speed things up until you are playing four beats per measure and making the changes in-between beats. Finally, in our last practice session we will add a strum pattern.
This is a detailed practice routine that you can apply to any new chord progression you want to tackle. Work on the chords, changes, and strum pattern separately before you try to put everything together. This will help you to isolate any problems you may be having.
