Transcripts

1. Week 1: Introduction: welcome to learn to play guitar in 10 weeks. What should you expect from this course? This course is divided into 10 approximately half hour lessons. They would teach you from zero to confident acoustic rhythm guitar player. By the end of the 10 weeks, you'll be comfortable playing songs, strumming chords, and you'll have started to learn about more advanced Qatar technics. In each lesson, you will learn to new chords, a new technique on guitar, some basic music theory, and you will learn to play through a song or court. You do not have to take 10 weeks to complete this. Course you can learn at your own pace are the faster or slower. I recommend that every second day you pick up your guitar for at least half a Knauer and go back through the songs in the last two lessons. This'll course is also extremely valuable for songwriters. If you have written some lyrics and want to be able to play guitar well enough to support your son writing, then this course is for you. 2. Week 1: Types of guitars: welcome to Lesson one. First, we'll look at the different types of guitar. There are three main types of guitars. Nylon string, still string and electric. There are, of course, many other types of guitars, but these are the main three general types. For this course, we will concentrate on playing an acoustic guitar. Acoustic generally means that it is not electric. This means the sand made by the guitar can be heard without having to play the guitar into anything or connected to electricity. Having said that, acoustic guitars can also be plugged in when you need them to be letter for a band or to perform to large groups. The two main types of acoustic guitars and nylon string and still string as the name suggests, a nylon string acoustic has nylon strings and a steel string. Acoustic uses steel strings from a beginner perspective and nylon string. Acoustic is a lot easier to play as it requires less pressure on your fingers to be able to play the chords and is often softer to strum. A steel string Acoustic is great if you have stronger hands and fingers to be able to hold down the strings. Here's an example of a nylon string acoustic attack. You can see it has strings might of a nylon material. The guitars can often be referred to as classical guitars. This guitar is a steel string guitar has still strings. Many steel string guitars also have a place to plug in a guitar lead to a lady electrify a steel string acoustic guitar. The third guitar is an electric guitar, which you can also use for this course. For your first choice of guitar, I would definitely recommend a nylon string guitar, then moved to a steel string acoustic once your fingers are strong enough. 3. Week 1: Parts of a steel string acoustic guitar: the parts of a steel string acoustic guitar, the main parts of guitar. Just like a person. You have a body, the neck and the head on the body. There is a bridge between the neck and the head. There's a piece called and not and on the neck we have an area called the Fretboard. There are also vertical metal bars that accord friends on the head or heads stock, as it is also called. There are tuning pigs, and these were used to tune the strings on an acoustic guitar to the right pitch. 4. Week 1: How to hold a guitar pick: I had to held a good topic. The guitar pick is used with most guitar playing. The pick is also often called Elektrim. There are many different types and thicknesses of guitar picks, depending on the type of guitar and starling music that you're playing, said the guitar pick on the top of your point of finger Kirk your finger in towards your thumb until you can comfortably rest your thumb down on the top of the pick. Make sure there is only a small. A man took a topic sticking out from your fingers to strum the guitar with the pick strong from the thicker string on a slight angle down towards the thinnest string on the guitar, make your hand back up and strum down again. 5. Week 1: How to strum a guitar: have to strum a guitar. There are two ways to strum guitar with a guitar pick or with your fingers. With a good topic, you need to help the pick correctly. Then when you strum down, angle the picks slightly back towards the top of the guitar so that the pick doesn't get caught on the strings strummed down on, move your hand back up and strong down again, practice strumming this way to begin with. You can also strum down, then strum back up again. Using the pick. You will strum down, up, Dan up. Angle the picks slightly so that you don't catch the peak on the inside of the strings strumming Damn up Dan up. You can also strong with that topic by using your thumb. Strum Dan using the soft finger part of your thumb. Then strong back up. He's the Nile on the top of your thumb. As you come back up again, you can practice strumming Dan Dan up, Dan up, down and up 6. Week 1: The strings on a guitar: the names of the strings on an acoustic guitar, the strings and named using letters of the alphabet and numbers. The thinnest string is the note E on the thicker string is also the note e. The thinnest string is string number one. On the thicker string is string number six the names of the strings. Starting at the six string is a fifth string is I, uh The full string is day. Ah, the third string is G. The second string is be on. The first string is E. 7. Week 1: How to read a chord diagram: how to read a chord diagram. To be able to play the guitar, you we need to learn how to read a chord diagram. A chord diagram shows you where to put your fingers on the guitar To read. This could diagram, which is an a minor chord you need tonight. How the fingers on your hand and numbered Looking at the diagram. Your point of finger is number one. Your middle finger is number two. Your ring finger is number three, and your little or pinky finger is number four. Sometimes you might also need to use your thumb as well. This is referred to as the letter T for thumb. The next task is to understand what a friend is. A friend is the metal bar that is spaced along the neck of your guitar. You'll see on my skull, Tars. There is a dot just before the fifth fret and again another dot before the 7th 9th and usually two dots on the tour fret can't them out to sea. Which Fritz have the dots on your guitar? Let's try an a minor chord. Place your second finger on the fifth string in the second fret. Take it slowly your second finger that your middle finger up to the fifth string, remember, we number the strings from the thinnest to the thickest, said the fifth string would be the second closest string to the top of the guitar. Then make sure your fingers sitting just before the second fret to make it easier. Instead of thinking of the second fret as the middle bar. Think of the second fret is the space between the fritz or the second space between the fritz. When she have your second finger on the guitar, place your third finger or ring finger on the fourth string in the second fret, your fingers should look like this, and it should match the chord diagram for a minor. Take your fingers off and see if you can put them back on again. Second finger on the fifth string in the second fret third finger on the fourth string in the second fret. Take them off, underpaid again. Nice and slowly this time. Make sure you slide your fingers up close to the middle part of the second fret. This will help stop the strings from buzzing when you're strumming the guitar. Another important thing to remember is to keep your thumb in the middle on the back of the neck of the guitar. Place your fingers back on the guitar again in the shape of the e minor chord. Now strum the guitar four times. One, 234 Don't worry yet. If the notes don't all san clear and clean, this comes with practice. Take your fingers off and repeat the process again. Make sure you think it's a close to the front of their frit to reduce the chance of the string, making a buzzing sand. Try again and strong. 1234 Repeat at least 10 times, you may find your fingers start to feel a bit sore. This is normal by the time it will become easier, you have just let your first a minor chord. 8. Week 1: How to play an A minor chord: we're now going to learn how to play an A minor chord. The I'm on record uses three fingers. Place your first or point a finger on the second string in the first fret your second finger guys on the fourth string in the second fret. Your third finger goes on the third string in the second Fred as well. An easy way to remember this is to play an aim on record. Then move your fingers down one string and at your first finger to the second string in the first, fret and take your fingers off and try again your first or point a finger on the second string in the fist front, your second finger goes on the fourth string in the second fret, and your third finger goes on the third string in the second Fret. Once you have your fingers in the right place, let's try and strum a minor and listen to what a sand suck Uber gay strum one Teoh 34 Take your fingers off, put them back on again and strum one, 23 You have no talent and a Monta court 9. Week 1: How to read a rhythm pattern: how to read a rhythm pattern. A rhythm pattern shows you why that you can strum when playing any of the courts that you are learning in this rhythm. Patton. We had just going to strum Dan four times. The rhythm pattern has the numbers for four. This is called a time signature. The time signature just means to count four times in each bar. The bar is the distance between the vertical lines on the music. To play this rhythm, we can't 1234 and then we strum. Dan, Dan, Dan, Dan, You've already been strumming this pattern while you're learning your a minor and aim on accords. 10. Week 1: How to read a chord chart: how to read a cord chat. You will learn a lot more about cord chats as you go through the course To begin with, I want you to understand just enough to be able to play through the cords that you have lent. In this chart, which is called Take One. We had the music divided into eight segments. Code bars. A bar is the distance between the vertical lines. So this is a bar. We also have a time signature that shares 44 on the left of the music. Then we have the cords written above H Bar. These are the course you have already learned a minor and a minor. To be our to play this music or we need to know, is that we strum down on the guitar four times for each bar while playing the chords written above the bar, in this example, will play a mata and strong Dan four times, then changed to an a minor chord strong four times and then back to a minor. This court shot repeats the same process over and over. You will also notice the double dots of the start and the end of the music these double dots mean to repeat the eight bars a second time. Let's try this. I will count in four and then you can strum every day. One to 34 a minor, a minor, a minor name on a change A mano a mano, a mano a mano change e minor e minor e minor human change A mano a mano a mano I'm Ana. I've given you some practice tracks. The music will canton with four clicks. Then play through the court changes from a mynah toe. I'm Ana. See if you can keep up The practice tracks are at three different tempos. Nice and slow for the first track than a bit faster and then fastest stool For the third practice trick. Try playing along with slight practice. Strike first. They want your comfortable move to the faster practice treks. Once you're caster will play in these court, You are now ready to move on to the next. Listen 11. Week 1: Practice track 52 bpm: Yeah. 12. Week 1: Practice track 62 bpm: 13. Week 1: Practice track 72 bpm: 14. Week 2: Introduction: welcome to Week number two in the course, learned to play rhythm guitar in 10 weeks. My name is Chris Richter. It's awesome to have you back again. Last week we looked at the parts of the guitar way. Also Lent had a whole a good topic, had a strong guitar, and we learned their 1st 2 chords E minor and a minor. By now, you should be very comfortable playing. That's two chords. This week we will look at the two new courts. G Major and D Major have to tune a guitar using an electric guitar tuner and how to play a new guitar rhythm to help you had a bit more. I'll also give you some hints to try and stop those annoying, buzzing sounds that happen when you're first learning guitar, Let's get started. 15. Week 2: How to tune your guitar - with a tuner: to tune a guitar, U N Aid to know the names of the strings, the strings and numbered from the thinnest string as number one to the thicker string as number six. It's easier to learn the strings. Counting backwards from the six string string six is the night e String five is the night a string for is the note. D String three is the note G String to is the night be on string. One is the night e notice that string one and six are both a nights, but string six sans lower than string one. They are known the same as in They're both the note e. But there what is called an octave apart Music uses the letters A, B, C, D, E, f and G and then the nights or repeat again. This way we can have more than one of any night. In the case of the guitar, we can have more than one e note. For this lesson, we use an electric guitar. China that looks like this Using a guitar tuner, make sure you read the instructions first. Check that the tuna is on the guitar, sitting as it could be on base or the chromatic sitting. Place the tuna on the head stock of the guitar and play the low, a string used to cheating pig that lines up with the string. Either tighten or loosen the cheating pig for the G string. If the tuna is showing a note higher than the E, then you would need to loosen the string by turning the Chilean pig in the direction that max history loose. Keep adjusting the tension on the string until the China choose a line in the middle with the correct name of the string below the line. In this case, it will be the night e. Now that the A string is in chain, we can move to the ice cream. It may take a little world to get it right. Persevere. Be patient and slowly you'll get H night in chain. Now let's move to the D string to the G string next to the base string on And finally, the thin a string. One important thing to remember is that you may need to get back through all the strings again and check that they are still okay. The reason for this is because as you talk, the strings on the neck neck can move slightly, and this would change the tuning on all the strings. So get back to the top back to the six string and quickly check through again and make sure everything is stating. Tune it or make a fine adjustment if you need to. Once you have all the strings in chain, it's time to play in a Monaco owed and safe. It sounds like this. It sounds a sign that it's golden chain. If not, get back to the start Dragon, you have now tuned your guitar using an electric guitar tuna. 16. Week 2: D Major chord: the next chord will look at is the D major chord. Remember, each finger in your hand is numbered. Your index finger is one. Your middle finger is too. Your ring finger is three, and a little finger is number four. The top of the court diagram is the nut on the guitar, and the horizontal lines are the fritz. Here we go to play a D chord, place your index finger on the third string in the second, fret your second or middle finger on the first string in the second fret and your third or ring finger on the second string. In the third fret, you'll notice the shape of this cord looks like an arrow pointing towards the body of the guitar. You take your fingers off, let's put them on again your first finger on the third string. In the second, fret your second finger on the first string in the second fret and your third finger on the second string in the third fret again. It should look like an arrow pointing towards the body of the guitar. Let's see if we can strum one important thing you need to remember before we strum on this card. You're night. It's a little X in the top left hand corner of the court shot. This X tells us not to play the string below the X so we don't play the six string when you play a D accord and it takes a bit of practice to strum without accidentally bumping the six string. But we don't play that string. So let's try and strum a D court. He'll be gay. 123 Take your fingers off. Put them back on again. First finger, third string second fret his second finger face string second fret and your third finger. Second string third fret. Don't strung the six string he every day. One, 23 for perfect, You've now lend a D major chord. 17. Week 2: G Major chord: we will now look at how to play G or G Magic cord. A J Magic cord is what I call the stretchy guitar chord. Place your first finger on the fifth string in the second. Fret your second finger on the six string in the third, fret, then stretch your third finger all the way down to the first string in the third. Fret just like these. You notice him much. You have to stretch to be able to play the J court that's try strum down four times he be gay one to 34 Take your fingers off the guitar. Let's try again. Place your fingers on a J code first finger on the fifth string in the second fret second finger on the six string in the third fret, then stretch your third finger all the way down to the first string. On the third, fret that strum again. Here we go, one to three four. Repeat this 10 times, strumming four times. Remove your fingers. Put your fingers back on a G chord and stronger game. Once you are comfortable with the J cord, try playing the a Monaco owed, then switching back to J. then back again to a minor, learning to change courts quickly while strumming It is a challenge that once master, less you to play so many songs quickly end in time. 18. Week 2: Songs that you can play: song. She comply with D G. A. Monta and I'm On a. There are so many songs that you can now play with just those four chords. There is a website that will show you which songs you can now play with those chords that you have lent. Let me share Hedwig's Go to this link. Www dot guitar player box dot com slash select slash chords slash find slash songs. Once you are at the website, choose the cords that you now and I had to play. G a Montana. I am honor and day thing. Click on the send button, scroll down the list until you find a song that you like, then click on the name of the song. The lyrics of the song will appear with the name of the cords written above the words to play this music. All you need to do is sing ho hum. The song ends from the court. The difficult part is knowing when to change the courts. Luckily, they made it really easy. You know that you have to do is change the cords when you get to the word that has the cord name written above it. If we chose you to. When love comes to town, it shows us the chord D and G a used in this song. If we look at the first line of the song, we start playing D. I was a sailor. I was lost. Is a G at sea back today. There's only enough time to strong twice before changing back to D from Jake, for example, Won t 34 d r wasa sail up. I was G at D. That's when we'll change the court. Choose a song that you know really well that you could sing or hum along, too. At this stage, don't try to play along with the original recording because it is very likely that the key you are playing in is different than the cave there. According will explain her case work in future. Listen at the moment, just hum along or seeing as you play, you are now really playing the guitar awesome and well done, and we'll see you in the next lesson 19. Week 2: Stop the buzzing: stop the buzzing as a beginner. One of the most frustrating things convey the buzzing noise that comes from your guitar when you strum the reason for this is that your fingers and not Harding the attack or tight enough or in the right place? Oh, uh, that you are touching other strings. So let's check each of these air before you go any further to show you what I mean. How your fingers on an I'm on record like this. Now play each string one of the time from the six string all the way to the first ring As you play, check to see if you can hear each individual string. Clearly. Here we go. Six five for 321 If a string is bounced in, the first thing to do is make your fingers closer to the front of the fret. So I move your fingers forward towards the body of the guitar. Let's try again. You okay? Six, five, 32 and one starting to Sam better. The next thing to check is that you're not touching another string with your fingers. Make sure you could your hand around. And if you have to maybe a wrist a bit further around the neck to make a bigger gap between your fingers and the fretboard. This will reduce the chance of you touching a string that you shouldn't be touching. Let's try again. He were gay using a mynah 65 32 and one much better. The last thing to do is make sure you have enough pressure on the strings, so keep your thumb tight on the back of the neck and put your fingers into the neck a little bit tighter. As you practice your cords, keep adjusting so that you can remove that buzzing sound. 20. Week 2: What is a time signature?: what is a time signature. The time signature is a simple way to explain to a musician how many notes and the type of note that there is in a bar. Remember, a bar is the distance between the two vertical lines on a piece of music. A time signature has two numbers. In this example, we have 44 The numbers are written one above the other. The top or first number tells us how Maney notes we have in a bar. In this case, it is a number four, so there's four nights in a bar. The second number, which is just it's important, tells us the type of notes that we have in about. In this case. It is also the number four. If you imagine the four at the bottom is being part of a fraction, for example, 1/4 so 1/4. Then this tells us that we must use quarter notes. In music, we have what is called a whole night, which is a semi brave. The half night, which is a minimum 1/4 night, which is a crutch, it in an ice night, which is a quiver. Did you notice the quarter night. Call the crutch it when we see 44 it's a time signature is telling us the bottom four means we Macias a crutch It as the top of night in a by so 44 actually means four Cratchit beats per bar. So we we can't 1234 Cratchit Image bar. So to do that, we would just get 123 full. It doesn't mean we can only play crotch. It beats in a bar. It means that when we can't the bar, we must can't for crutch abates. In this example, we could also use quivers, which are half the value of a crutch. It we still have four crutch. It's but because two quivers take up the same space as a crutch, it we can have eight quivers in a bar full for it is starting to get a little bit confusing . But the more you play, the more you get used to it and start to understand how it all fits together. Understanding here, time signatures work will become very important when we move onto strumming and extra them pen 21. Week 2: Strumming pattern: strumming pattern. This pattern is in four for which we now know means four Cratchit Bates per bar. The rhythm uses quivers and is counted as one end to end three and four. And when we strong this pattern, we're going to strum Dan, then up, Dan. Then up Dan and up, Dan, Then up nice and evenly you can see in this rhythm pattern that were streaming down with the arrows Point down, then up When the arrow points up by playing your a man Accord, Let's try this rhythm. I can't you in 1st 1234 Damn up, Dan! Dan, Up, down, up! The trick with this pattern is being our to change course without stopping. This is where you need to practice. Try again. Strumming an a minor chord Thin Switching to a mynah 1234 Dan up! Damn up, Dan, Down change, Dan! Damn! Damn! Damn! Came on it! Damn up, Dan! Damn Down came on a dam. Dam Dam, Dam up! Things will takes in practice. Take it slightly as this pattern will set you up for the rhythm patterns that you were learning the weeks to come 22. Week 2: Practice track intro: to help you practice this pattern. I have some practice tracks for you. This court shot is called Open Ocean and we hope you strum along using your new chords. G major in D major as the Willis accords you've already lent in the previous lessons. A mile and a manner. The practice track will give you four Bates counting. And don't forget the double dots mean to repeat the practice Trek has different tempos. Slow, medium and a bit faster. Few to practice along with good luck. 23. Week 2: Practice Open Ocean 52 bpm: 24. Week 2: Practice Open Ocean 62 bpm: 25. Week 2: Practice Open Ocean 72 bpm: 26. Week 3: Introduction: Welcome toe, Wake three. It's great to have you back here again. In this lesson, you will learn how to tune a guitar by year, how to play a C chord, how to play in Accord, how repeats work, had a strum and your guitar rhythm and, of course, had apply, along with the new piece of music called the Future Let's Go. 27. Week 3: How to tune a guitar by ear: how to tune a guitar by AEA to tune a guitar By E. M. You need to know the pitch off the lower string on the guitar. This is the string number six or the low e string To find out the low eastern pitch that you're need to chain the strings to, you can use an a pitch tuning fork. Or you can use a piano and play the night e or using your fine search for a nap that will play you the night e and help you with your cheating. Play the note E on your app, piano or tuning, Fork said. You can hear the pitch of the note now Play the low a string on your guitar, then turn the tuning pig for the low e string. Other tighter. To train the string up closer to the Reference Night or looser detective, string down to the Reference night. Keep adjusting the string tension until they sound the same pitch. You managed to replay the night quite a few times until you tune the guitar to the creek. Note. Let's have a guy. You the way you have the light, A string in chain you can use the light a string as a reference to change the next string on the guitar. The note on the fifth string is an A note. Also, the night that is made by placing your finger on the fifth fret of the six string is also I I. If you place your finger on the six string in the fifth, fret and play both the six string and the fifth string that should be the same pitch because they're both an a night try to listen to the beach difference. If you find the pitches different, you'll need to adjust the fifth string, either up or down until it sends the same is the note on the fifth fret of the six string, Let's try changing the fifth string way. Uh, now that the fifth string is in June, we can move to the fourth string. The night on the fifth fret of the fifth string is the Night D, which is the same night is the open full string. Place your finger on the fifth fret of the fifth string by the night, then play the fourth string again. That should sound the same. Chin the fourth string until it sounds the same as the fifth fret on the fifth string. Let's join the fourth string some way to third string. Place your finger on the fifth fret of the fourth string. Apply the night, followed by the third string. This is the night G. It's June 3rd string to train. The second string is a little bit different. Put your finger on the fourth, Fred, not the fifth on the third string. This note is B. In the bass string is the second string you can natche in the bass string, using the full fret on the third string. That's Jean B to Chain the Last A string. Put your finger on the fifth fret of the second string things night. He is a you can naturally in high a string now that you have the a string tuned play, the low E six string on the high, the festering at the same time, they should send like the same note, but two octaves apart like this. If the knights don't sound the same, then you need to start again at the six string check H night and check them slightly. It only takes one wrong night and every other string from then on will be at take it slightly is this is a school that many people struggle with and can take time to learn to do correctly. If you want to check your training, go back to your electric tuner and see how well you did. It is well worth learning. This skill is there will be times when you can't find an electric juna or the battery goes flat and you want to get tired of sending chain whenever you play. Each time you pick up the guitar, quickly run through and check the tuning by AEA. Fix it and then check with Katrina. Soon you'll be able to tune your guitar by ear confidently. Remember that the first note Lower East Ring must be at the correct pitch first, so always use a reference night glide first to check that the Liwei string is correct. As a helpful hint, you may find you can only get the note for a or concert I, as it is sometimes called because the second string is the night. I you can train the second string first, then use a second string to train the first ring. Once you've completed that, you can then move on as normal through the other strings 28. Week 3: C Major chord: how to play a C major chord. The next court to see Major. To play a C major chord, place your first finger on the second string in the first. Fret your second finger on the fourth string in the second fret and your third finger on the fifth string in the third Fret. Once you're ready, we will strong four times. Here we go. 123 Take your fingers off and let's try again. First finger on the second string. First front, your second finger on the fourth string in the second fret and your third finger on the fifth string in the third fret, ready to strum. Here we go. 1234 Hint is that a C major chord is only one finger different than an a minor. If you put your fingers in the shape of an a minor chord, then maybe your third finger up to the fifth string on the third front, you have a C chord. I probably should have told you this earlier to make it easier for you, but the and I you can get a A C major chord easily from an a minor. You have now lent a C magical, really well done 29. Week 3: A Major chord: The next court we will learn is the image accord. The A major chord is what I call the squishy cord. You have to squish all your fingers in together into the one small area, so place your fingers on the fourth string in the second. Fret your second finger on the third string in the second front and your third finger on the second string. On the second fret. This could be a bit squash e. If you've got fat fingers like mine to solve this problem, what you can do it? Swap your first and second fingers around like this. Most people should be able to fit their fingers in the creek shape there. Let's try again. First finger on the fourth string in the second. Fret your second finger on the third string in the second fret and your third finger on the second string in the second. Friend Strong four times. Ready? 1234 Take your fingers off and let's try again. First finger, full string in the second front second finger, third string in the second, friend, third finger on the second string in the second fret. It's from four times again. Here we go. One, 234 Congratulations. You have now learned, and I a magic cord 30. Week 3: Songs that you can play: songs that you can play with D G. A. Mina, I'm Honest C and A Let's see what songs we can now play with the cords that we have. Let's go to guitar player box dot com. Remember, you may not be able to play along in the right key to the original recordings that practice this again by singing or humming along while you play guitar. Our promise will look at how to play along with the original songs very, very soon. Here is a list of possible songs. Have a look through and see if any of them look familiar or you recognize the songs and start playing through the songs as many as you like. This is really good practice for changing your cords. 31. Week 3: Repeats: had dinner pates work in music, there are often parts of songs that are repeated. For example, a typical song has verse and the chorus, and the course is very often repeated to make it practical for the music we can use for Peyton Max that show us way a section is repeated in the music without having to write the same thing to us. This says having too many unnecessary pages of music and makes it more practical for writers. Repeat, Max is signified by double dots between either side of the middle line on the music staff. As you can see, we have repeat dots in the first bar and then again at the end of the fourth bar. This means you play the 1st 4 bars through to US bars 1 to 4, then repeat the same four bars again. The second line there paint looks a little different. Notice. It shows the number one in the bar with a repeat dots in a number two in the back after the repeat. What this means is to play the four bars here, then repeat back to the dots, then play through the three bars. But because this is the second time that we've played this section. We jump straight to the number two section, so to play this music play bows 1 to 4, then repeat bars. Wonderful play bars 567 and eight. Then jump back to bar 567 Skip over the next bar straight to buy nine to finish the song. As you start using repeats more often, you'll find it extremely useful. One thing to remember is that sometimes if there is more than one person playing, the music musician may forget to repeat a section. So be very carefully. Take notice of all the reports and follow them. Otherwise, you might end up playing different music than the rest of the musicians. 32. Week 3: Strumming pattern: This is your first complex guitar rhythm. The rhythm is written said that you can count it in two different ways. You can can't the rhythm as Dan up, down, up, down, up, down, up where you can can't one end to end three and four and oh, use both so that you can get used to the sand and feel of the rhythm. To play this rhythm, you must keep your arm moving in an even motion down, then up, down, then up with that speeding up or slowing down, we'll use a name on record for this example. This rhythm is in 44 which means four Cratchit Bates in a bar, and the rhythm is played using quietus. You'll get used to this terminology. As we keep going. You will notice that the fourth quiver and the eighth quiver are skipped. This means that we don't touch the strings on the way back up. We're skipping the fourth and eight beats in a bar. We create quite a different standing rhythm. You can camp by saying, Dan, up, down, living up, down, up, down Live a gap. Sometimes it's a Zia to say the word up in your head. Dan up, Dan! Dan up. Damn! Or you can use the word rest. Dan up. Dan risks Dan up, Dan Wrist The up is where you move your hand, But don't touch the strings So your hand is still moving down and up evenly But skipping the string for the fourth and I up to strum this all we're really doing is that Dan? Up down, up, Patton. But on the fourth bait, we move a hand up and don't touch the string. And again, on the eighth beat, we move their hand up. Don't touch the string. It sounds like this one. End two and three and four End down, down. Risk. Damn Out down wrist one end to wrist three and four. Wrist down, up, down. Wrist down, up, down. Wrist one and two, Wrist three and four rest. Let's keep it nice and slow and I'll start again And it's your turn. You can use whichever would you prefer. Do we go? One and two and three and four. End down, up, down, Wrist down, up, down! Risk one and two. Wrist three and four. Wrist down, up, down! Wrist! Damn up, Dan. Wrist one and two. Wrist three and four Wrist. Well done. Go back and play it again if you need to. And keep practicing. And this rhythm your use in the next song. 33. Week 3: Practice track: the song The Future uses the new rhythm that you just lent as Willis the Chords G major C major, a major in D major. Now, just to repeat marks that we learned this week follow their repeats as you play through the music. I've provided you with three different tempos. As you get used to the chord changes and there are picked signs you'll be able to move to the faster temper. Good luck. 34. Week 3: The Future 56 bpm: 35. Week 3: The Future 66 bpm: 36. Week 3: The Future 76 bpm: 37. Week 4: Introduction: in this lesson, you will learn some exercises that you can do that will help with your fingers and with your picking. You'll also learn the cords in Major and the Court, a major seven. You will learn more about crutch, It's and Cuevas and you strumming rhythm and a practice track called Blue to play along with Let's Go. 38. Week 4: Finger and picking exercises: There is some simple exercises that will help with your guitar playing. The first exercise used to get used to using your pick and you strum you run the pick all the way down the strings. But what we're going to do is learn how to pick individual strings in what is called an alternate picking technique. Using your good topic. Play the first string by picking down number two. Pick back up and play under the fist ring again. We're going to repeat this iva at least eight times. I will Can't in the new play The A string. Here we go. One to 34 Dan up, Dan up, Dan up, Dan up. That was ese de. Let's try again. A little bit faster. Same string on the thin A string 1234 Damn! Up, down, up, down, up, down, up! Try to accidentally not touch any of the other strings. And again, 1234 Dan Up, down, up, down, up, down, up Now you accountable picking down than up? We're going to look at the second part of this exercise. This involves combining picking with playing the notes on the guitar, using your fingers on the left hand. Place your fingers on the low E string in the first fret pick Dan and then back up again. Place your second finger on the second. Fret Big Dan on back up again. Place your third finger on the third fret Big dam and back up again and the most difficult part, your fourth little finger on the fourth front. Pick Dan on, then back up again. Let's try this again, picking it and see if we can do it to a tempo. You go. One, 234 Dan up. Dan Dan. Up, down, up. You'll find the most difficult Fret is the fourth fret. With your little finger, you will take some time to get strength into your little finger. Make sure you place your fingers close to the front and keep them held and us and taught. Let's try a little bit faster. Won t. 34 Dan, Dan Dan Up With this exercise, you can add to the same prices on every string. Here's the demonstration of playing through all the strings. Here we go. Won t three full, Dan Up, up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down up. Down, up, down, Up, up, up! Damn up, Dan! Up, up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, up, Down, up The UK Now it's your turn to see if you can play through all the strings on the guitar. Picking Dan that up using all four fingers in the 1st 4 friends. 39. Week 4: E Major chord: the next chord is called a major. You may notice straightaway that an E major chord looks very similar to an a minor chord in the shape, except that it's moved up one string. Place your first finger on the third string in the first. Fret your second finger on the fifth string in the second front and your third finger on the fourth string in the second. Fret. By now, you should be getting quite comfortable reading a court shop. I'll Canton Fist won t 34 Dan, Dan, Dan, Dan, Take your fingers off back on again won t. 34 Dan, Dan, Dan And there we have an a magical will them. 40. Week 4: E7 chord: ruin and look at an E seven chord. A seven is extremely easy because you already and I had a plan. A magical. The correct name for a seven is a dominant seven, but we would just call it a seven finance place Your first finger on the third string in the fist. Fret your second finger on the fifth string in the second fret and that's it. That's from the court. 1234 Down, down, down, down! Take your fingers off and back on again. 1234 Down, down, down, down! You may have noticed that an E seven chord is anyone note different than an e chord. We complain e chord and take 1/3 finger off. And that gives us a seven The Navan. Easy way to remember this court. You have no talent and e donot seven court 41. Week 4: Crotchets and quavers: it is important that you start to understand hand notes in music work. What night lengths are in the different types of nuts? Remember in 44 that we learned that this means four Cratchit beats per bar crutch? It looks like this and can also be called a court tonight. By looking at the values of the different nights, we can see how they all fit together. If we divided by into four segments, like, say, you can see that a semi brave, which is called the whole night last for the count of four or covers or four boxes in the bar. If we use to minimums or half nights in a buy, you can see here that take up half of the body by quarter nights or crutch IDs you can see here they take up 1/4 of a bar. Each H night lasts for a specific amount of time. Win played, taking it one step further. We could divide the buy into ites instead. We can add a whole night or semi brief that will last for the Khobar because it is a whole night and minimum will still take up half the by because it's 1/2 night. The crutch It, which is a coordinate, will take up 1/4 of the bar and a quiver, which is called an eight night, takes up one box speech or an eighth of the bar if we were to mix them up. What we would need to do is make sure that if the time signature is 44 that all the nights we use add up to four Cratchit Bates in a bar, for example, if I use a minimum, that's 1/2 night plus a crutch. It that's 1/4 night plus two quivers. That's +28 nights, then this all equals the same as for crutches in a bar, you can see it lined up how it all titles for if H by adds up to the time signatures requirements of four. For that music is pliable by a musician. We will stop there with the note names, and we'll come back to this further along in the course. Hopefully, you started to see how music is very mathematical in how it's represented and how it is all starting to fit together. 42. Week 4: Strumming pattern: Welcome back. This time we are going to learn and you guitar rhythm, and this one is very simple. But because of where the rest is, it may take some time to play confidently. The only place we don't touch the string is on bait three, which will feel very strange to start with because you are so used to strumming down on this bait. Take it slowly. Let's go through the pen, strum down, then up Dan thing up. Let's keep the strings on the white Dan strong back up then Dan and back up. Really simple. Let's try this at a temple using an a minor chord. One end to end three and four end. Damn, Dan. Wrist up, Dan. Is it that I'm? It's your turn to practice now. We got a little bit faster this time one and two and three and four and down. Damn risk Risk risk. Damn wrist. Keep practicing this rhythm and you'll get to play this a lot in the years to come 43. Week 4: Practice track: now that you have learned to new rhythm and some you chords a major and e seven, we'll use these in their next music champ. This practice Chad is called blue. Remember to follow the repeats, practice the slower tempo first, then move on to the next. Make sure you hold your fingers on the strings up close to the fritz to stop the buzzing sand and keep your strumming nice and smooth and consistent. And now it's time to play blue. 44. Week 4: Blue 62 bpm: 45. Week 4: Blue 72 bpm: 46. Week 4: Blue 82 bpm: 47. Week 5: Introduction: Welcome back to Week five. We have where there and I hope you've enjoyed the course so far. You should be getting used to the process and becoming more comfortable with playing the guitar. In this lesson, you will learn how to use a cape, the court be seven and a seven. You will also learn and your guitar rhythm. It's a little bit more complex, a swell as a practice track to play called Road Trip. Keep up the practice and let's get started. 48. Week 5: How to use a capo: This is what you've been waiting for. A Cape A is a piece of equipment that's used on a guitar to change the length of the guitar . What this does is make the chords on the guitar seeing higher and allows you to do what is called changing key. Were there having to learn new or more complex courts, let me show you how to use a cape a fist. Then I'll give you an example of how you would use it to play. There are many different types of K pose. The cape our have here is placed over the top of the neck of the guitar in position just in front of one of the frets. What this does is change, where Fret one is on the guitar and new frit one is the first fret after the cape. Now what does this really mean? Let's play a G chord with that. The cave. I have listened to the sand nap with Cape A on the second fret and play a J court again, not just the sand difference. That's because what you are really playing is a G chord two times higher than G, which is really the tone of an accord. If we play at G Chord with the Caper one, then we take the cape off playing accord. Not as hell. I have very similar in the sand. Have the same pitch you confused. Yet let me explain in different way. In fact, let's save the confusion and start using the caper in a practical use and in a further listen or teach you more theory behind how capers and keys work. For now, we want to use the Cape A to help us play our favorite songs. So let's go to your guitar player box dot com. Choose the cords D G A. A minor and a minor. You may have noticed before in guitar Player box dot com that there is a C on the right, a letter C and right beside it, there is a number. What this means is to put the cape out on the second fret and then play the chords for the song. What this allows you to do is play along with the original song on YouTube or Spotify or wherever you play music and your chords will be in the same key as the original recording Let's give it a go with four non blondes or a song of your choice. It says. The caper goes on frit to, and the cords are G. I am on a, C and J By following the Cape phone number, you can now play along with your original video or audio with songs, and it was seeing correct. That's pretty awesome run. So let's get to it. Find a some Put the caper on the correct number, fret and see if you can play along with the recording of the song on YouTube or on Spotify or I change or ever you listen to your music. 49. Week 5: B7 chord: had to play a Bay seven chord to play a B seven chord. You can see the chord diagram has a string gap between your 2nd 3rd and fourth fingers. There's so Michael bit easy to remember, but it made you have to be more careful in not touching the fourth and second string with your 2nd 3rd or fourth finger. Let's try bay seven. Place your first finger on the fourth string in the first. Fret your second finger on the fifth string in the second. Fret your third finger on the third string in the second fret and your fourth finger on the first string in the second fret, Give the guy 1234 Take your fingers off that gun again. Let's drum again. 1234 Notice E X above the six string. I'm actually don't strum. The six string thing is back on again. Strum 1234 You now have a B seven chord 50. Week 5: A7 chord: how to play in a seven chord I seven is a very simple core deplane you've already learned. I'm mija. I seven is just removing your second finger from an accord and you're applying I seven. Let's play it and see what it sounds like. You were gay strong. One, 23 Take your fingers off back on again and strum 1234 Try strumming an accord for four. Bates, then I seven for four and back again to hear the difference in the sand. 1234 A 234 A seven 234 I 234 A seven 34 You've Neyland had to play in a seven chord. 51. Week 5: What songs can we play now?: Let's see what songs we complain now. Goatee guitar player box dot com. This time, select the cords a minor, a minor de g. C I. You should come up with a massive list of songs that you can play, and near the end, I had to use a cape. You can also play along with the originals as well. Helpfully, you'll find a good choice of songs and will be out of place some of your own. Look the songs up on Spotify or You Cheap and play along with them and show your friends just how good you are playing guitar. 52. Week 5: Rests in music: rests in music as you have lent. There are different types of nuts. We have semi Braves minimums, crutch. It's in quivers. There were also risks that match each of these night lengths. Looking at the chart, you can see that a semi bree of Rest looks like a rectangle hanging from the second top line of the music and minimum wrist looks like a rectangle sitting on the middle line of the music. A crutch at rest looks like a funny squiggle, and the Cueva rest looks like a why, with the dot on the top left, we were stopped by using wrists in a rhythm pattern. For example, a previous rhythm that we looked at was written like this, where bait three was where we didn't strum the guitar. But with the rests in the correct place, it would look more like this where bait three shows an actual rest instead of a night that is the Cueva Night and the quiver wrist. As you go through the course, you'll start to see rest used in music, which just means not to play on that particular bait or for the length of the bait. The night is representing so minimum risk means to not play for two bits. Crutch Arrest will be template for one and a quiver. Don't play for half a bit. Keep an eye out for more rests in future lessons. 53. Week 5: Strumming pattern: this new rhythm pattern might look a bit complicated, but it's actually really easy to play where we use a mantra to practice. The rhythm is countered by saying, Dan Wrist, Dan, Wrist Dan up down. Rest or one rest to rest. Three and four. Wrist plans slightly. It sounds like this one. And two and three and four and down. Risk down risk. Wrist down. Wrist, wrist. Wrist. OK, your turn. Can't you in one and two and three and four and down. Risk down. Risk. Down, up, down Risk, Risk risk Down, down! They risked their wrist. 54. Week 5: Practice track: the next practice Trek is called Road Trip. Road Trip makes use of all the seventh chords that you've learned so far. Remember, follow the repeats and start with the slow version first enjoy. 55. Week 5: Road Trip 62 bpm: so. 56. Week 5: Road Trip 72 bpm: uh 57. Week 5: Road Trip 82 bpm: 58. Week 6: Introduction: this week, you will learn how to play basic finger picking. Our pigeon had a play D dominant seven and the major seven. You will also learn about some new music symbols and a new guitar rhythm that will be applied in a 68 time signature. 59. Week 6: Fingerpicking arpeggios: when playing guitar, it is often not just enough to strum. Sometimes the song would be greatly improved by picking through the strings one of the time to give an arpeggio sand. It sounds a bit like this thing is a style of finger picking off in Houston classical guitar. The first step to be able to play this is to place your fingers on the right hand in the correct position. Place your thumb on the fourth string and your next three fingers in between each of the other strings between the second and third, the first and second and below the first. Now pick the fourth string with your thumb. Then the third string with your point of finger. The second string with your middle finger on the first string with your ring finger. Let's try this together, all canting. 1234 Some finger finger. Think from finger thumb finger. Let's try this with a D magic cord. Get your hands in a day. Magical position. 1234 Thumb finger, finger, finger, thumb finger from finger finger from finger thing. An important part of this technique is it the night we play with the thumb is the bass note for the court that we're playing from changing your guitar. You already know that the fourth string is a day night when we play a dick ord were playing the D Night with their thumb. If we change to a G chord, we need to know what the G night is. G Night is the third fret on the six string said. To play a G chord, we would play the six string with their thumb, keeping the rest of the fingers back where we had them before. Let's try this. 1234 thumb finger finger finger, thumb, finger finger, thumb finger thing I think we owe provided chat for you that shows you the mess common cords and they're based nights to help you decide which string you should play with your thumb before we finish with arpeggios. There is one extra pattern that we can play. You'll find very useful for many songs. Instead of just playing four notes, we're going to play at nights. The pet Inis thumb, third finger, second finger, first finger, second finger, third finger, thumb finger looks and sounds a bit like this. I'll canteen fist 12341234567812345678 Playing a decode, see if you can play along with me a little bit faster. 123412345678123456781234567812345678 60. Week 6: D Major 7 Chord (DM7): how to play a D major. Seven Chord a day Major seven Chord is a little bit different. T a Day seven or what is correctly called a day dominant seventh Chord. This is the sand Off a D chord now at 87. Chord on the one we're going to Learn a D major. Seven Chord D major. Seven. Chord is often used in jazz style songs to play a D major. Seven. Place your first finger over the 1st 2nd and third strings on the second front, and that's it. Let's give it a game. 1234 Dan, Dan, Dan, Dan. Take fingers off your finger off. Place it back on again across the 1st 2nd and third string on the second front. 1234 Down, down, down, Down Now Let a D major seven chord but uses in your first jazz pace. At the end of this lesson. 61. Week 6: D7 Chord: has to play a D seventh chord. A day seven chord looks like an arrow pointing the opposite way to a decode. To play a day. Seven chord means you need to stop your fingers around from a D. Accord de seven is also called a D dominant seven, as opposed to a D major. Seventh or a day seven. They're all three different chords. Place your finger on the second string in the first. Fret your second finger on the third string in the second front, your third finger on the first string in the second fret, Let's play D seven canteen. One, 234 down. Take your fingers off first finger on the second string in the first front, your second finger on the third string in the second front and your third finger on the first string in the second fret one 234 now had a day seven court to the list of chords that you can play 62. Week 6: What songs can you play?: songs. We complain. What songs can you play now with these new chords Gated guitar player box dot com and Johnny Accords. By now you can play D. G. I'm Ana, a Mina Si, I de dominant seven, the Major seven I seven, Base seven, a seven Day seven and A. There will be hundreds of songs that you can play using a cape. A. You'll also be a to play along with your YouTube or Spotify visions of the songs. 63. Week 6: Music symbols: There are many other music symbols that we can learn that will help us understand, hear music works and to help us play better. Let's look at a few more of these symbols we've learned about nights, minimums, semi braves, crotch, it's and quavers and the rest that belong. With each of days. They have a basic understanding off repeat sons. What we haven't looked at is this staff you have seen it before. The staff is the five lines and spaces that you will see that music is written on the lines themselves. I could ledger lines. We also have bar lines, which are the lines that separate each of the bars that the vertical ones double bylines, which you have seen used when we have repeats. Another new symbol is called a cliff, and you have already seen a cliff is, well, this squiggly line. It is called a G cliff or a treble clef. Another cliff that we have a swell is the base cliff. Or if Cliff the Cliff is used to tell us what the names of the ledger lines are on a staff , for example, a g clef or a treble clef. The very center of where the symbol starts, sits directly over the line that is G, so it's also called the G Cliff for trouble Cliff. It tells us that the second line from the bottom is the night G. A base cliff, which is called F cliff. The very start of the top left sits on top of the second line from the top or covers the second line from the top. It is called an F cliff, and that tells us that that line, the second line from the top, is if another type of legend lines or staff that you may see is called tab. And it's for tablature to teach you how to play lead pats on a guitar or basically time or any other string instrument. The lines in temperature represent each of the strings on the instrument, so if you're playing guitar the tablet, you would have six lines. If you were playing ukulele, the temperature would only have four lines. This thin shows you which fret and which string to put your fingers on. Two ply the nights have three. This is giving you a bit more of an idea of some of the symbols that he used in music 64. Week 6: Strumming pattern: This isn't your guitar rhythm, and it uses at different time. Signature. You may remember we discussed 44 as four crunchy bits per bar. This rhythm uses a time signature of 68 This means six quiet abates per bam. The ICT of the bottom shows us it's a quiver, and six is a number of base. Several years in the bar. When we can't see Excite, we can can't one and two and, uh, or you can count. 123456 Make sure the accent, the one and the four when you can't this way. 123456 To play this rhythm to strum your guitar Dan six times. Let's try this. Using an a minor chord, I will can't six in 1234 by 6123456123 Try playing this rhythm again, using a mana toe A and back to a manner. Hey, 1234563634636346 Well done. Taken notice of the time signatures in the songs on Guitar Player Boxed up come to see if they are in 68 your name. Be able to apply those songs with the correct rhythm pattern 65. Week 6: Practice track: It's now time to play, J. J. Feild said. Or jazz. This song is in six site, and it does have repeated the end. The courts were going to use our D Team Major seven, the dominant seven to J Your Trip. Eight story fairly easily and again. Start with the slow tempo. Work your way up to the fast tempo. Just be really careful with the D major. Seven Chord. Make sure your finger hold stand all three of their strings together at the same time. Let's go. 66. Week 6: Ja5Z 52 bpm: 67. Week 6: Ja5Z 62 bpm: 68. Week 6: Ja5Z 72 bpm: 69. Week 7: Introduction: in this lesson, you will learn about the importance of listening to music. Have to play a D minus seven chord as well as a new F back order way were gay into more detail about what Cliff is and how this helps us with learning the nights on the stuff had to strum a 34 rhythm and and next practice track called Take Some Time. 70. Week 7: Listening to music: because music is about sand, it is extremely important that you listen to music and take notice of what is happening in the music. There are three key things to listen for in music to help improve your playing. They are one the form of a song to the feel or rhythm of a song. And three. The court changes in the song, contemporary or modern songs I usually made up of verse, Chorus, Bridge, an introduction and unending. Sometimes they may have an instrumental or Salo. Somebody in the song you will already notice from playing some songs that the course of the versus out from the same and the cause to the chorus is also the same for each course. For example, the song Perfect by Ed Sheeran, which is in six site, has an introduction this a chorus of this chorus and instrumental. And then, of course, the form of the song is very simple. The cords in the this are the same for each vests. The chords in the chorus are the same for each course. So once you learn first here to play the vis and the chorus, then you know pretty much the whole song. So take notice of the form in other songs heavily versus There are how many choruses they used in the sun and check if the course is repeated. The end of the song is this is also very common. The second thing to look at is the feel or rhythm of a song, which is extremely important. This, along with the lyrics and the melody, are what separates one song from another. He may be using Executive Sound Court pattern as many other songs, but when you add the lyrics, the melody and a different rhythm, then you have a new song. As he listened to the song Tap on Your Knee, the feel or rhythm that the song has, this could be changed into a guitar rhythm. When you listen to a song that may be a very similar rhythm toe, one that you've already land or it may be something completing you. It doesn't take long to start to get a feel for how the rhythm in a particular song Sands. You can then start to make songs more unique by varying Hey, you strum the guitar to suit the feel of a song. The final part of music to take notice of when you're listening is where the cords change. So far, we have been changing chords once per bar. In reality, many songs change a different places in about you may need to change from a C chord to a J cord halfway through about were, you may need to change the cord just before the end of about instead of the count of one humanity change chords of the counter four. As you listen to music, listen for the court changes, so you can start to get a better understanding of when the courts need to change and where in the bar the courts will change. Listen to your favorite songs while looking at the court. John can help you find where the court Sanders should be. And this will help your listening skills to pick up the right places to change chords. When you play 71. Week 7: Dm chord: had to play a d Mont accord. A Dame Ana is a very action on a decoder. You will have noticed already that cords with the same letters very similar to the cords when we add 1/7 or my jack or a dominant seventh. This is because cords are made up of notes and 1/7 chord is just adding one extra night to accord. Place your first finger on the first string in the first. Fret your second finger on the third string in the second front and your third finger on the second string in the third. Fret. Let's can't listen. 1234 Dan! Damn! Damn! Damn! Take your fingers off first finger on the first string in the first front second finger on the third string in the second fret and your third finger on the second string in the third fret Kennedy. 1234 Down, Down, down! Damn! You have a new chord to add to your very large collection of courts. 72. Week 7: F Major chord: had to play in. If magical, this is the first court we might struggle a bit with hat. Apply the cord. This top of court is often referred to us back ord because she place one finger across all the strings on the guitar. I'll teach you two different ways to play this cordon. The first is the normal. By that you apply this cord. Then I will show you an easy way to plan. If magical, place your first finger across all six strings in the first front. Place your second finger on the third string in the second, fret, then your third finger on the fifth string in the third front. Finally, your fourth finger on the fourth string. In the third fret, try strumming. And if Magic Cord 1234 sprung from a stroke. Did you get a hint with this cord? Is that your first finger really only needs to hold down the night on the six string and the first and second string, your other fingers will be Harding down the nights on the 3rd 4th and fifth string's already for you tell it's dragging your first finger across all six strings in the first fret your second finger on the third string. Second fret your third finger on the fifth string in the third fret. And finally your fourth finger on the fourth string in the third fret Canton for 1234 down . Then Dan, Dan Dan. Negative thing is arrest. An easy way to play. This cordon is to not play the lower six string place your first finger across the first and second string only on the first front place your second finger on the third string. Second front, your third finger on the fifth string. Third fret, and finally, 1/4 finger on the fourth string in the third. Fret net winnings from Don't Play the Lie Sixth a string canting 1234 Down, down. Things called will take some practice. So be patient. Give yourself extra time to practice that if magical, when she had this court work, Daddy will open up a whole new world of chords that you'll be able to play 73. Week 7: The staff: So far, we have lent a few of the symbols used in music. Crutch. It's quivers, crocheting, Cueva wrists, repeat marks and balance. We looked at a couple of other symbols that are useful tonight. One symbol that we did look at is called a cliff. You might remember seeing this from an earlier lesson. We looked at the trouble cliff in music. Remember the lines and spices? I caught a staff. This is used to represent the different musical notes, and this is how people read music. So then I want night they're playing. The cliff is used to let you know what night should be used for the lawns and spices. A treble clef that looks like this shows us that the middle start of the trouble cliff drawing is a G night. This means if you can't age night up or down on the staff, we can work out what the other lands and spices air cooled. For example, the second bottom line, as shown by the trouble of J. Cliff, is a J night. The next space above that would be a the next line above that again would be B and so on going Damn from the J Night. The spice belie G is f. The line below that is E, and the night belie the bottom line is date. Often we had an extra night. Belie this with a line through it, and this is called C. You may have heard of it referred to as middle scene. If we use a different cliff called Basically for F Cliff, the starting point of the cliff is an F night. This means the five lines and spaces, and they're all different notes than what they were for a dribble cliff. Now the spice above the F night is G. The top line is now I the night sitting on the top of the line is be and the night above. If we put a line through it is C. It is confusing. Let's try this all together. Music used to look like this. It was called the Grand Staff, but working at the nights with 11 lines and spices was an absolute not May. If you look at the night on the middle line, it is called Middle C By removing the middle line and having five lines at the top, a missing line in the middle and five lines at the bottom, we can add a trouble cliff to the top five lines in a base cliff to the bottom five lines. You can see how the grand staff was turned into something more readable by a normal person , so the trouble Cliff represents the top five lines and spaces above Middle C, and the base cliff represents the five lines and spaces below middle C. Simple. Now that's probably enough for decision. In this course, we will not be learning how to read all of the nights on treble and bass clef. This is beyond the 1st 10 weeks, but I hope this has been useful for you in understanding what the cliff symbols mean. 74. Week 7: Strumming pattern: this new rhythm. Patton uses a time signature off 34 You guessed it. That means three crutches beats per bar. To get this rhythm, we can't one end to end three. End one end to end three end you can also, I can't one risk to end three wrist. Oh, uh, Dan risk Dan up down rest. Let's try this rhythm on a C chord. All counting three, one and two and three and damn race down. Now we'll be playing this rhythm using the chord C, F and G and back to see one Byron H Keep going one and two and three and down. Wrist. Wrist risk rests. Risk. Well, then, go back and try again if you struggled, especially with the F chord, as you will need this for the next practice trick. 75. Week 7: Practice Track: this practice track is called Take some time because it has an F chord in it. It may take some time to perfect. Also, remember, the music is in 34 three crutch. It beats per bar. There are three different tempos. Stopped the slower tempo and work your way up. 76. Week 7: Take Some Time 66 bpm: 77. Week 7: Take Some Time 76 bpm: 78. Week 7: Take Some Time 86 bpm: 79. Week 8: Introduction: In this lesson, you will learn some of the nights on the guitar. You will land an aim on a seven chord and the demon of seven court. You'll also learn a bit more about night rating and more complex rhythm pattern to use on the guitar, which you will use with the practice track called Riel. Let's go. 80. Week 8: The notes on a guitar: is extremely useful to lend the nights on the guitar, especially the nights on the lower, thicker strings 45 and six. This will help with playing arpeggios and with knowing what notes you can play when we get into very advanced cords, starting with the light a string. The nights on the strings follow the musical alphabet, which is the notes A, B, C, D, E, F and G, which then repeat the night. On the first fret of the Light East ring is the night, if the night on the third fret of the light, A string is G. The next night is the open fifth string, which is I second fret on. The fifth string is being on the third fret on the fifth string. It's saying the open fourth string is day. Second fret on the fourth string is third. Fret on. The fourth string is back to If I notice. When I played these, I used my first finger in the first fret second finger in the second fret third finger in the third fret and forth little finger in the fourth threat. Try to do the says you practice. Remember, we're talking about notes not cords. Cords of what you strum and night is the individual sand that, combined with a few more nights, makes up the sand of Accord that's tried to play through the nights from the light a string to the night a on the full string. Follow the diagram and play along I Will Candace Seen Fist one Teoh three Full have been a string G i B C D A. Near played, an active that was eight nights in what is called a scale. Let's try this again. Can be seen one to three, for I've been a If g. I being seeing now play all the notes from low E to, ah, high active G using all the strings. See if you comply along and replay the exercise as many times as you need to get comfortable with where these notes are. Canteen one to three for pipe in a If G i B C D E f g. I have a B c D. A string. If Jay well done, go back and reply this if you need to to help practice through it, should the nights print out the notes sheet that are provided? Keep a copy in your guitar case, and that will help you remember what the notes are on the guitar. 81. Week 8: Em7 chord: to play an A minus seven or a minor dominant seven chord. As it is called correctly, There are two different forms that you can use. You can place your first finger on the fifth string in the second fret and that's it. Or you can place your first finger on the fifth string in the second front, your second finger on the fourth string in the second front, your third finger on the second string in the third fret and your full finger on the first string in the third fret. Let's listen to hear what that sands luck. Oh, accounting. One, 234 Strong, strong. It's thing is a really nice sanding court. Fingers often try again. First finger on the fifth string in the second front second finger on the fourth string in the second, fret third finger on the second string in the third front and your full finger on the first string in the third Fret. Here we go. One Teoh three, bore Strong's drums strong. You have talent, an aim on a seven chord 82. Week 8: Dm7 chord: D minus seven or demanded dominant seven is a simple cord to play. It's a slight variation on the demon accord that you learned earlier. Place your first finger over the second and fair strings in the first front, then place your second finger on the third string in the second. Fret. Let's play 1234 Strong, strong, strong, strong. I can't fingers off back on again. First finger over the second and fair strings in the fist front. Your second finger on the third string in the second. Friend. 1234 Strong, strong, strong, strong. Well done. You will use this chord in the next practice track. 83. Week 8: Reading notes: Now that you are extremely comfortable with cords, let's look a reading nuts before you can stop playing knights on the guitar. You need to know how to read the nights on a sheet of music. Although this course does not get into detail on night rating, it is useful to have an understanding of what is involved and the potential for you. If you can read some nuts, let's look at the G or trouble Cliff Fist. Remember it showed us that the middle line on the staff is the night G. This matches the J string on your top. If we look at this collection of notes, you will see that it has the notes. See de E. If n. G written on the music, they are all written as crutch. It's if we now look at the nights on the guitar, you can see we have the night See which is the fifth string. Third fret. Apply this with your third finger, followed by the night D, which is the open four string. Next is E, which is the fourth string second friend. Use your middle finger for this night, then F, which is the third fret on the fourth string on, lastly, the Open J String, which is the third string way. If we can apply this piece of music, it would look and sound like this. Won t. 34 c d E f g That's dragon. See if you can play along one T 34 Seen Dean. It's now try a more complicated piece of music reading the Nights We Have a C, which is a crutch, it D and A, which quivers de as a crutch. It A and F, which I quivers then G if a d a quivers and see as a minimum to play this replace. See on the third fret. Fifth String D is the IAP in fourth string E second fret on the fourth string back to D, which is the open string again. A second fret on the fourth string F eyes. The third fret on the fourth string G is the open fourth string, then F A C E o. Timing of the Knights would sound like this. 123412 and 34 and one and two and 34 It's your turn to play this melody. One T 3412 and 34 end one and to N 3412 n 34 and one and two and 34 This try once more and see if you can play along again. One T 3412 and 34 and one and 234 12 and 34 and one and two and three. For A Zaken, see, it's not too difficult to Lynn Hatter. Read music. With some practice, you can become faster at reading the nights and more proficient but finding the nights on the guitar as well as playing the correct timing for the nets, Make sure you practice. One thing I have not mentioned is a difference between single nights and nights with beams to cuevas beside each other can be written by drawing a line between them. This means exactly the same thing as two single Cuevas, but joined together. We conjoined them with a beam across the top 84. Week 8: Strumming pattern: and next rhythm to learn may seem a little confusing, but once you start playing it a faster tempo, it becomes easier. Let's walk through it slowly. We have down wrist wrist notice again how we move their hand up, but don't touch the strings on both beats two and beat three. Here it is playing to accounting of four 123 for Dan. Wrist, wrist, wrist, wrist. That's if you play long Won t 34 down. Wrist, wrist, wrist, wrist A faster tempo won t 34 Dan up wrist, wrist, wrist, wrist up thistles The rhythm that will we use for an ex practice track called Riel. 85. Week 8: Practice track: this song uses your new cords D minus seven a minus seven, and it also has the difficult F barcode in it. Practice along slowly to the first practice track and then move on to the next faster practice trek. As you get more comfortable with both the rhythm and the chord changes. Because this pattern ends with a quiver upbeat at the end of each bar, you don't have much time to change chords, so take it slowly first, so that you get that chord change nice and smooth before you go to the faster tempos. 86. Week 8: Real 60 bpm: 87. Week 8: Real 70 bpm: 88. Week 8: Real 80 bpm: 89. Week 9: Introduction: In this lesson, you will learn how to read by sick guitar. Tablature had to play a C ad non cord and here to play in a minus seven court. You will also learn a new rhythm to practice, along with the practice track called Rapid Up. 90. Week 9: How to read guitar tablature (TAB): had to read guitar, tablature, guitar tablature, or tab is a special form of music notation designed especially for string instruments instead of the lines referring to a particular note, The lines on Tab refer to a particular string. The nights then have a number written on them to show what for it to play. This is an example of the guitar part written in Guitar Tab called Funk. It notice the numbers on the lines in the first bar of music. It tells us to play the note on the seventh fret on the fourth string. We don't need to know that this is an a night tab is just telling us way to put their fingers to play the night. The tab also has a trouble cliff and the timing of notes so that you know when to play the night. This is where learning the night lengths and the types of notes could become extremely useful. Let's look at a simple pace of music. As you can see, this tab shows a simple melody. We don't need to know the names of the knights to play the space of music. The tab tells us that the first night is to be played on the full string in the second Friend. The second note is to play the fourth string in the third Frighten. The third night is an open G, or ripened third string, not just zero written on the string. The next night is the second fret on the third string back to the open, third string. Then the third fret on the full string. Second fret on the fourth string and finally back to the third. Fret on the fourth string. Apply this again for you. See if you can play along here we go second, fret on the fourth string. Third fret. On the fourth string, I pin third string second fret on the third string. Back to the open, third string thin, the third fret on the fourth string. Second fret on the fourth string, and finally the third fret on the fourth string. This time, I'll play it through at a tempo so you can hear how the rhythm guys. One end to end three and four and one and 23 and four and 123 for not just the last night. Guys for the cantor. For Bates, you've now played your first guitar tab. You can find guitar tech music on the Internet for many songs, especially for guitar solos, but also for more classical or acoustic arrangements of songs. 91. Week 9: Cadd9 chord: a C add nine Chord is a useful court to play as it's easy to transition from a J cord to a C and non cord. The name sounds complicated, but it just means we're adding the ninth notes starting from C, which is actually a day night. Give the guy place your first finger on the fourth string in the second front, your second finger on the fifth string in the third fret third finger on the second string in the third front and fourth finger on the first string in the third. Fret I can't you in 41234 sprung from Thing is off back on again. First finger on the fourth string in the second front second finger on the fifth string in the third. Fred third finger on the second string in the third fret and four finger on the first string in the third. Fret. I can't in one t three for strong spring practice discord. That is a great court for singers. Some writers 92. Week 9: Am7 chord: a name on a seven or AM on a dominant seventh chord is very similar to, and I'm on record or you need to do is remove your third finger from a name on Accord to create a name on a seven chord place your first finger on the second string in the first front, your second finger on the fourth string in the second front. That's it. I'll canteen won t 34 Strong, strong, strong, strong fingers off back on again. First finger on the second string. First fret second finger on the fourth string. Second fret. 1234 strong, strong, strong, strong on. That's how you play and I am on a seven chord. 93. Week 9: Strumming pattern: this new rhythm is a little different in that it is to bowels long to play the rhythm. Dan Wrist. Then wrist Dan up. Wrist up den wrist Dan up. Dan Wrist Dan Wrist. That's why it three slightly I'll canting one and two and three and four and Dan, Risk, Risk, risk, risk, Risk Risk and again a little bit faster will go through twice this time. One and two and three and four and down. Risk and risk there a risk up, then risked, risked and risked and risked and risk risk Risk risk. Damn breast. We use this pattern for your practice trek and remember that you'll be changing chords part way through the pattern. 94. Week 9: Practice track: to play the practice trek. Wrap it up. I've included the two part rhythm pattern to make it easy for you to follow notice. We have a first and second repeat by in this arrangement. Start with the slight temp, a move up as you get more comfortable playing the to bow rhythm. 95. Week 9: Wrap It Up 60 bpm: 96. Week 9: Wrap It Up 70 bpm: 97. Week 9: Wrap It Up 80 bpm: 98. Week 10: Introduction: in this lesson, you will learn about court groups. You were Lin had a play of the mine accord and be barcode had a strumming you rhythm and we'll look at how to play your own son. And at the end of this week, you will need to submit your own recording of your own song, something that you've created by choosing the cords that fit together to make your own son . 99. Week 10: Chord groups: core groups when you play chords. There is a group, of course, that when placed together, make musical sense. They work together as a group in this lesson. Or Shea, which cords work best together, said that you can guess which cause will be in a song just by listening to the song. A detailed explanation of how this works is a whole nother course of its own, but generally cords of grouped in What Accord? Keys? The cave. See my job has the cords see Day Mina a Mina if J. And I'm Ana. What this means is that song written in the key of C were typically use this group of courts. In some cases, there may be other chords added to the song, but the majority, of course, used in a song in C major, will be this particular collection of chords. If a song was in the key of D major, then the core group would most likely be d Aim Ana if shot Mina, which you haven't let it G. I and Behm Ana. I've listed here the six most common keys and the groups of course, that go with each one. The groups are see d minor a mata if G and I'm ana in the cave day We have a d a Mona if shop minor g I inveigh Monta. If the sun was in the cave A, it would be a if shot minor G sharp minor i B and C sharp minor If we in the cave if we would have. If J. Mina I am on a B flat c and M r the K G would be a g chord and I'm on Accord Bay Mina see de and aim on a code And in the cave I we would have I beam Ana c sharp minor de A and an f sharp minor chord. Looking at these groups of cords, you may now recognize the cords from songs or from the practice treks, and you'll notice that often these courts applied together in a group. Often the first chord in a song is the first courting the core group. If the fist caught in a song is a minor chord, then often it is the six chord in the core group. For example, if the first chord in the song is a minor, then it is common that the core group is from the Sea Magic Core Group. Because I'm honor is the sixth chord in the same age group. This is just a guide to help group cords. You'll find that many songwriters would try to vary the cords by adding something different into their songs. If you're writing our own song, you could just pick a core group and choose the cords from that group to write your son. This makes it very simple and easy to choose What chords to use. I've met a printable sheet, a valuable future Dan allied with the court groups in case you would like to keep a copy in your attack. It's when you try playing an X song, have a look and see if the chords in this song are all part of the one group. 100. Week 10: B minor chord: similar to an F chord baby monitor could be played in two different ways. The first shape. It's a place, your first finger across all the strings on the second front. Then your second finger on the second string in the third front, your third finger on the fourth string in the fourth fret and your fourth finger on the third string in the fourth Fret. You will need to hold your first finger down very tight on the neck to stop any buzzing. Let's play won t. 34 strong, strong, strong, strong things off back on again, fish finger across all the strings on the second front second finger on the second string in the third front third finger on the fourth string in the fourth fret fourth finger on the third string in the fourth. Fret. Let's play one, 234 strong, strong, strong for the second shape. Just put your first finger out of the first and second strings on the second fret second finger on the second string in the third. Fret third finger on the fourth string in the fourth fret fourth finger on the third string in the fourth. Fret, don't strum the fifth or the sixth string's that's playing one 234 Strum strong sprung from things off and back on again. First finger over the fist and second strings on the second front second finger on the second string in the third front third finger on the fourth string in the fourth. Fret fourth finger on the third string in the fourth fret. 1234 Strong, strong, strong, strong You've near lent the to be monarch chord shapes. 101. Week 10: B Major chord: to play a B chord, you need to place your first finger over all the strings on the second fret second finger on the fourth string. Fourth Fred third finger on the third string in the fourth fret and fourth finger on the second string in the fourth. Fret, Let's play the court. 1234 strong, strong, strong, strong fingers off, back on again. First finger over all the strings on the second front, your second finger on the fourth string in the forefront. Third finger on the third string, fourth Fred and fourth finger on the second string in the fourth fret. This bay cord is called a bar chord, and it's used as the basis for many other chords that you may use later. When you start playing more advanced cords, let's play 1234 strong, strong, strong, strong. Well, that 102. Week 10: Write your own song: in this lesson, you learned half court groups worked together. What I would like you to do now that you understand core groups, is to put together your own song, course structure and form and even lyrics and melody. If you're game enough, choose one of the case from the core group Shade, for example. Day mija, I've provided a sun God shade here, boy, your verse will have eight bars, and your chorus will have another eight bows. Choose the cords that you would like to use from the D major Chord group. As an example, I might use D as the 1st 2 bows. G is the next 2000. This a minor for the two bows, then A for the last two hours. For the chorus, I much use G for two bars. D for two bars, thin a minor D. G and A for marriage. I have the course and Marvis. If I play through this song, I could add lyrics and the melody or just by the courts through this one chorus. Best to then maybe the course three. Twice record yourself playing your own version of your own song and sending a copy. If you playing your music. You could just record on your fine and submit the video. I will say in your video, make sure that you show a copy of the course that you're using, said I can compare that to the cords that you're playing in your song. Good luck with your music writing, and I hope you enjoy. 103. Thank you: thank you for taking this course. It is being great. Too heavy.
