I had a real problem with chord switching. Aldrine wants a ghost chord C6 before the switch. I don’t use ghost chords normally, I switch direct and putting it in completely throws my rhythm. In the end I left it out. Just how important is it?
As you go through the course you’ll be presented with different strumming patterns. The open chord was put in there on purpose because most people can do an up and down. A lot of things in this program are to challenge you by getting you away from habits and other things your brain uses to “cheat”. By the end of the course, it should be much easier.
I am loving this so far…. Just what I was searching for all around. I am not telling my guitar playing husband about these practice sessions. That way in 28 days I can get his reaction and see how much I have improved in a real world way.
Worm – 2
Strumming – 17
Picking – 30 (was using both P and M finger)
– 33 (using T, P, M on all 4 strings > g, E, C, A; just wanted to do another b/c I practice that one more often)
C Scale = 8
Chord Switch = 16
I found it quite hard to count at the same time with strumming and chord switching. I don’t sing much, so clearly that is something else I need to work on)
