The Chords

Basically I want to show you the strum. It’s kind of a similar rhythm to “Country Roads” by John Denver. I call it a boom-chicka. It’s like a… I’m hitting the A string and then the low note is my boom. Then I hit… So it’s like a I V. What that means is I’m in the key of A and I kind of have the major scale. That’s my E note. A little bit of theory, don’t worry about it for now if you don’t understand. All you need to know, form your A chord, get that down first.

Now what you can do is you can take that across different chords. So it’s A, E. On the E chord you hit the low E and then the B. So that’s — already have that held down, fretted on the A string 2nd fret, F sharp, D. So the F sharp minor, again, it’s low E string and A string. On the D, it’s the D string and then the A string. So the whole thing like this.
