Introduction To Simple Chords – Em & G – Lesson 12

In this lesson, we introduce you to your first chords – Em & G, and show you some simple strumming patterns.

Syn’s Tips

Always play to the backing tracks when you can and practice applying some of the strumming patterns you learned from the previous lesson to these chords. Always experiment with different patterns or rhythms you hear in different songs and try creating some yourself to explore your own creativity. All of these lessons should be jumping off points. I can't stress the importance of changing or manipulating everything taught to you enough. This is how you begin to create those epic masterpieces you are all capable of! I call this .... Making it Your Own!

Jonatan Krajecki Hey Papa Gates! I believe there might be a bug with the previous lesson - Strumming & The Tik Tok Pattern. Anytime I try to access it via Lessons tab or through 10th or 12th lesson it goes straight to login screen ( Your account; logout; etc). Maybe there is something wrong on my part or maybe it's worth looking into 🙂 Anyways, great lesson as always! I'm on a streak right now 😀

Kristy Bowman Hey Alyson, I have a really hard time with chord changes too. I can play the individual chords most times, but going from one to the other quickly doesn't happen well. I need some advice on this one too!

Kristy Bowman Hey Alyson, My husband told me that a lot of this was muscle memory. We just have to keep practicing. He said not looking at the chord and trying to let our hand and mind do the work and we will get better at it over time. Hope this helps out a little!
