Week 2 Explanation

An overview of the chords for week 2.

In this lesson, we’re going to cover A and E major. These are also chords where you don’t have to stretch you fingers too far.

The cool thing about the E major chord is that it is exactly the same as E minor, except all you have to do is add in finger number 1 to the third string from the bottom in the first fret.

Again, all you need to do for this week is get your muscles used to playing these new shapes. The next video is a 4-minute loop with E first and then A to practice along to.
