Hey, guys. My name is John McClennan
and I’m here with,
bringing you this video lesson. And
again, I’m elaborating on developing
your right hand, finger-style chops.
So if you’re new to it, this is going
to be a perfect lesson to, again,
just help get you going.

Two chords we’re dealing with, and be
sure to click the link below for the
tab for this. The first chord is C
and the next chord is going to be a G7,
which is 2nd fret, 3rd fret, 1st fret.
So C, G7, C.

What we’re going to do is we’re going
to start with our pick. We’re going to
play the root note and we’re going to
go up to the high E and then we’re going
to play the second string. If I say the
string numbers, 5, 1, 2, again, while
holding down our C chord. Then you go
4, 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, back to 5. So that’s
one-and-a, two-and-a, three-and-a…
Try it again. One-and-a, two-and-a…

Then you go to the next chord, G7,
resolving to C.
