Transcripts

1. 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 . 2. 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. 3. 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. 4. 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 5. 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. 6. Thank you: thank you for taking this course. It is being great. Too heavy. He I hope it has been extremely useful four year and then you learned a lot from the course . Way to now, there are many options you can follow, depending on what tougher music you like to play on what type of Qatar you're interested in . If you would like to learn electric guitar, lead guitar and play guitar solos in a course on electric guitar with the focus on hand, apply lead specifically how to read guitar temperature would be a great pass. The following. If you prefer acoustic rhythm guitar, then you need to focus on guitar rhythms, court variations and structures. You may have found the note reading section the course Interesting. In which case, of course, on classical guitar could see you. Then he had to read music and had a play finger picking styles of music which ever way you gay? Thank you so much for spending your time with me, and I hope we can catch up in the future. Good luck with your music adventures and catching the next course
