Hey, this is Matias Rengel with Guitar Control, you’ll be learning how to play this amazing song called “Best Part” by H.E.R ft. Daniel Caesar. It’s a very easy song and has only four chords, but we’re going to be checking out different ways that appears throughout the song.
This song has 4 chords we have a B major 7, F sharp minor 7, E major, and the G major 7. First we’re going to learn the chords and then we go into the actual rhythms. The first chord is placing your index finger on the second fret of the 5th string, ring finger on the 6th fret of the 4th string, middle finger on the 3rd fret of the 3rd string, pinky finger on the 4th fret of the 2nd string, that’s your first chord.
The next chord you’re going to be playing is an F sharp minor 7, for that you’re going to grab your index finger place it all over the 2nd string in the 2nd fret and then grab your ring finger and place it on the 4th fret of the 5th string. Make sure that with your index finger you’re playing all the notes.
After that we’re going into an E major and you probably know this one is super easy, just place your middle finger on the 2nd fret of the 5th bringing on the 2nd fret of the 4th index finger on the 1st fret of the 3rd.
For the last chord you’re going to be placing your index finger on the 3rd fret of the 6th string ring finger on the 4th fret of the 4th string pinky finger on the 4th fret of the 3rd string middle finger on the 3rd fret of the 2nd string. Don’t play the C in the 5th order first, but if you play it by accident it’s okay it’s not a big deal, but ideally 5th is a no it will really sound bad if you play it.
Then you got four chords B major 7, F sharp minor 7, E major, and a G major 7. Now what I want you to be put a metronome and practice it slow, however you want or whatever speed you want to. I don’t want you to do like 1, 2, 3, 4, remove and leave space blip empty spaces rest. I want to hear sustain even though the rhythm will not involve it most likely. This is going to help you play it correctly, there’s a tiny bit of rest at the end, that’s natural when changing chords.
Now for the rhythm it’s very easy, just grab your index and you’re going to grab your thumb and place it always on the lowest note of the chord. In this case we will be playing the 6th, so we’re placing it on the 5th string. Place in the index middle and ring on the 4th, 3rd, and 2nd, and you’re going to pluck them off, pluck them softly and then after you pluck it down with your fingers.
What I recommend practice doing this, coming down on this same position. So you do this, and you have to move a lot you start and learn to move your fingers. Then you can go into the next chord, you can keep this one’s right there but going to this one move the thumb into 6th keep the same fingers.
The first time we would play the chords that one time and then you’re going to put your index on the 3rd of the six, middle on the 4th of the 4th string, ring finger on the 4th fret of the 3rd and pinky on the 5th of the 2nd.
