- Chord changes
- Strumming patterns
The 4th guitar lesson for beginners will be a groundbreaking lesson in your studies since you'll be learning about strumming. Strumming your guitar is easy, if you learned the chords taught in the previous lesson you'll be able to play your first song! Knowledge of chords is one thing, and changing in between them fluently is another. This beginner guitar lesson will also build on the previous and teach you the correct technique of changing chords. It takes practice but is more than worthwhile. The things you will learn in this lesson are:
- how to strum the guitar
- how to change chords
- introduction to chord progressions
- your first strumming song!
This is a great, and really motivating lesson for most of my students, since it's the first big step in playing the songs you want to learn. Strumming chords create a rhythm, and this rhythm, along with the sound of the chord, defines the song itself. Practice your strumming skills and learn to change chords, watch the lesson many times, and then practice some more 🙂
After you practice strumming on your guitar, you could:
- move on to the next lesson on learning guitar notes and the fretboard,
- revise some of our free guitar lessons for beginners,
