Level 5 Key G (Full Chords)remedyjack2021-09-15T15:35:18+01:00
At this level we’re playing our full chords. We also will start learning our full 2 octave scales.
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.

NOTES ON THE GUITAR
Now we add the notes B & F.
The C major, A minor, G major, and E minor scales are now in 2 octave shapes. Notice how C major and A minor use the same notes but use a different root. It’s the same for G major and E minor. This is called the relative major and minor.
Play the C major scale over this track.
Play the A minor scale over this track.
Play the G major scale over this track.
Use this lick while playing in G major.
Play the E minor scale over this track.
STRUM PATTERN PRACTICE
This is probably the most used strum pattern used on guitar. Play along to the video as best you can using an E minor chord.
Your songs below now use the full strum pattern shown in the video above. Slowly try to add singing over your strumming.
