Now we advance to 4 string chords. The low bass string will now give your chords extra weight.
Play along to the chord exercises below. Try to stay in time with the track as best you can. Your target is to eventually be able to play along to all the tracks until they reach the end (bar 40). These exercises will have you playing your songs much more quickly than just song practice.
