Hi guys. In this lesson, we’re going to learn how to change between our first two chords which are the E major and A major. and these are the first two chords we wanna learn before we learn your first song. So this is our first chord – the E major. And this is our second chord – the way that I would prefer you to do it – the A major. But we do also have this option. That’s a totally valid A chord. However, if you’re finding the changes a struggle, with this method we can keep our first finger down and slide it to the second fret and then it’s already in the correct place and we didn’t have to lift it off to go for that second chord. And again, it just prevents this from happening, where we go, ‘aah, where do my fingers go?’. and you have to lean over too much and all that sort of thing. What you can do here is start to get a feel for where your fingers should go, rather than having to keep an eye on your fingers all the time. So it can start to be more natural. So, this is that E major chord that we looked at in our first lesson. We take our second and third fingers off and leave your first finger down. We slide it to the second fret. And put your middle finger above that string. And the third finger below. And then we strum the thinnest five strings. So just miss out string one. And when we want to change back, we take off fingers two and three, we keep your first finger down, slide it back to fret one, just at this side. Put the middle and third fingers where they were before, for the E chord. And we want to repeat that exact same method. Take the fingers off, slide, middle finger above, third finger below. Enough times until it happens almost automatically. Keep the first finger down, slide, thinnest five strings for the A. We can check it’s ringing out still. And then we keep that first finger down, slide it back, middle finger and third finger where they go for that E chord. And when we strum, pick all the single strings. First finger down, slide, thinnest five strings for the A. First finger, slide. And then it will start to get more and more comfortable and start to feel natural. Again, the temptations are to touch that bottom of the guitar, so the thinnest strings don’t ring out or kinda hold it more like this, so we wanna keep plenty of room and be quite disciplined with learning the right way to play these chords. And also, this first finger. It can be tempting when you increase your speed to not move that first finger. I’ve seen it happen with private students, again and again, ok? So, that first finger when we go from the E, it has to slide over to that second fret. You have to get it over the fret. Above and below and there’s our A chord. You want to repeat that as often as possible and then all we need to do is learn a simple strumming pattern. The most simple strumming pattern that we can learn and then we can play our first song straight away, ok? So join me in that next strumming lesson if you want to be able to play some songs with these two easy chords. And I’ll see you in that lesson straight away.
