1. Introduction - What are we going to learn?: Hi, my name is Alex and I'm going to share my experience. I'll to play a guitar. During this lesson, we will buy attention on the four basic chart. I will show you the fastest way altogether resolve and getting into magneto world. So be patient. And may the force be with you. 2. "AM" chord fingerprint: Hi, now we're ready to start with our first chart. It's a chart. Am. It sounds like this? So let's start with our finger pattern. So we're going to use this to tabs for this chart. And the first finger boot on the second Street and the first stop. Okay. Like this and tried to make the sound sounds like this. Not like this. To make it put your fingers not like when in this way, in this way above it. It's like this. To make the sounds clear. Let's call these sound like raccoon fart is incorrect again. So it's, there are conferences incorrect matrix, like this. Sounds clear and beautiful. So put your second thing, um, finger on the third string, on the second tab here. And also tried to make the sound sounds clear like this, not like this. It's our confirm. Okay. Like this. So the third finger tried to put all the thirds three ink on the second tab. Eats here. And also tried to make it sounds clear, nod like this. Like this. Okay, so let's read now to make it all fingers together. As you remember, the first finger at this first step, second string. This finger boot on the third string, second tab. And let's third finger put on the third string segments up and try to repeat it and repeat, boot it again and move out. Booted and move out like this. Just trained to make a gene for your fingers. You have to repeat it, believe me about the crime rate times to make it really sounds good. So booted, move it, booted, move it like this, you know, now I don't really think about how it put it. You just have to understand that your fingers have to make this muscle brain to do remember how it really works. So booted, First of all, I understand it will be very slow. You have to think, Oh, I will never do it fast, so forget about it. I know what I'm talking about. So put it here, here, here, and try to make the sound using only your one finger like this. Try to make the sound really clear. Like this. Not like this, is that means that your fingers are putting wrong. So the main, the most popular movie mistake that you, when you put your finger here, you put not only own one stream, you also travel with. You see what I'm talking about. You also touching your second string, it's incorrect. You have to put it like here, not to using only one string, Not like this. So here interrupts. The string gets incorrect. Sounds, okay, sounds bed. You know what I'm talking about? Like this. So just train. I will wait you okay. So repeat with me again. Booted. Booted. And one finger Boolean, one finger, wounded one finger. Okay. Okay. I understand that after this video you will not be able to play. It's really clear. And the first time, now, just train with yourself. Just pay attention that you have to make the sounds clear. It's very important. So just make you ten minutes to train this chart to make it sounds like this. Okay, and I'll see you in the next step when we're going to learn the next chart. 3. "C" chord fingerprint: So now let's talk about that c chart. C chart is using the three tops. So it's really build a gym for your head. So the first finger boot on the first step, second string here. The second finger on the second tab. First drink. It's here like this. And I'll try to not make raccoon fart as we talked before to make this sound nod like this. Like this. Not like this. It's a bad song like this. And the third finger boot on the fifth string on the third tab. It's yeah, I understand you it's hard. But in the future it will be the easiest chart ever. Trust me. So now you have just a train. You have to again try to repeat it again. Put your first finger in the second string, in the first step, these finger boot on that first third string and the second SAP. And these finger boot on the first string, third tab, and tried to make the sound inherits a very beautiful church. I really like this church scene and tried to make the sound clear, not like this is incorrect. This is correct sound. So move your fingers from that all the tabs and tried to repeat it again, the first finger and the first stop, Second String. And tried to make this sound like this. Now there are confined to silicon fires is bad. Tried to lag this server and this, these three, these finger on this third string seconds up and also try to make this sound like this. This finger put on the fifth string on the third top, tried to make this sound or deep sound. So, and tried to altogether, altogether just one you use just one finger. We will talk about this patterns, different patterns later, but now only use your one thing you're to make this sound like lists, okay? Yeah, yeah, yeah. Okay. Move your fingers out and now also repeat altogether. First step, second string, second tab, first string, and the third tab, fifth string. Okay. And tried to remove and booted, remove and remove and booted and tried to every time to do it faster and faster, that that's really matters. When you are sunk, you have to really fast from one shirt to other chart. Move your fingers so you have to make your technique really fast. So booted, move it. Booted mood. So like this. Up, up, up, up. Ok. I wait. I will wait. You just train training with me? Put out. Put out. Put out. Okay. Boot out. Okay. Cool. And tried to make this sound. Put out, boot out, boot out, boot out. So cool. If you feel that it sounds like this, then it's a great job. So you're ready to move to the next chart. 4. "G" chord fingerprint: So moving forward, now we have to understand how we change our fingers from c chart, do G chart. So I will show you the best way how to learn it. So we have at the start position, start moving your finger. This finger. Move the smoothing. Yeah, and put it here. After this finger put on the second tab, first string here. And this, this finger boot in the third tab, first string here. So repeated again. Our initial position is this c chart. First of all, moving these finger here, these fingers second, our fifth ring. And these finger put on the FEF, first string. The third, tap. This. So I'll show you how to do fast. Initial position, second position. You see at the first time I'm moving this finger. This finger is moving my whole hand. So like this and tried to repeat it on your own after when you put these chert, tried to make it a clear sound is very important to understand how to make your sound sounds really clear. Not to make this mistake. Don't make the raccoon foreign liking this sounds must be clear. So these position, this finger will be first these position. So now train on your own 50 times, trying to make it faster and faster and faster and faster language, yeah. Okay. If you feel that you're ready that move to the next step. 5. "E" chord fingerprint: So now let's start with our last chart in this lesson, this chart is calleds e, sounds like This. Sounds like a harp in heaven. So it's a very simple chart because we already know that I am chart. It's like this, but now we have to just jump one string about like this. So it is very simple. If you know these, these, you don't have really changed your finger pattern. Just jump over, just jump over. So let's talk about our fingers. The first finger is the first step, third, third string. These finger boot on the second top fifth string. And these finger boot on the second tab for string. And tried to make all sounds really clear with other confides. Yeah. Like this. Yeah. Just move your fingers out and again, put it and make a sand color. Move it out. Boarded may the sounds could move it out, booted and make the sounds clear and tried to repeat this about 50 times to practice. Okay. Move it out. Boot. At the first time, you boot your fingers step-by-step. It's like these, these, these, these sound move it out. These, these, these sound move it out. After that. You'll be able to build it all together. And try to make your right fingers, fingers to make the sound like this. Movie it out. Boolean, move it out and put it. Ok. So after this video tried to make the 50 times, this charge sounds really clear with other confines game. So in the next video, we will combine all our already known charts to make your first real song. 6. Conclusion - What's next?: Hey, now you know that basic for charts. In the next lesson, I'm going to show you the right arm technique and it's going to sound like this. So see you in the next lesson. 7. Introduction - STRUMMING PATTERNS: Hi, my name is Alex, and today burgers alert three very popular and simple strumming patterns. These last or will it be useful to understand how to choose the right streaming plots are for each song that was a reader. Bonus. I will show you how to use the term P and in which cases it's useful. We will make detailed analysis all that, each striving Popper. And maybe you'll find your favorite one. You knows, you'd like. And let's start. 8. Strumming pattern theory. Tips and hints: So let's talk about the theory first. Strumming patterns involve us traveling down. Traveling up. Strumming guitar itself, creating a very solid freedom. You need to think like a drama or your main job is to keep up the groove down an app. And you should be able imagine in your mind, what is strumming Three, sounds like tip number one. Keep, lose, raised. Firstly, make sure you're not locking your weakest. Usually keep it nice and loose. Most of the movements will come from the rotating your lower arm. So you can say boosting your greased and letting your hand and the Murray's tank loose to follow that motion. Deep number to never stop moving your strumming hat. You will need to keep our storming head moving all the time. Even if you're not heating the shrink. By doing this, you will no longer have to think about when you need to move your strumming cat. It's moving all the time. These motion also makes it much easier to keep the time. Tip number three, don't heat all strings in Evers thrum. You might think that you need to heat all the streams in ever Strom, but usually it's not true, you just need to heat this sometimes three, sometimes four streams. So how do you think the stream same for independence. Remember that it's your main job to keep out the group all the time. 9. 1st pattern analysis: So now we're ready to start with our first ceramic pattern. But first of all, we have to talk about our right hand position. How we can use our right-hand when we're swimming down and streaming out. For lease, you have to put your thumb printer DOM, finger on your point finger like this. And when you are streaming down, you have to heat the strings using your nails like this. But when your strumming up, you have to use your DOM finger like this. And altogether, down, up, down, up, down, up. Trying to do it with yourself, and down, up, down, up, down, up. So the first timing patterns sounds like this. For down and one, up, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down. So it printed whereas slow, down, down, down, Dan. Now. So as it can hear, when we're going to make our down down, you'd have to make it a little bit faster when you're doing your down, down, down. So you just have to hear it. Down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down. To make it easier for you. Try to repeat this. Down, down, down, down, up, down. When you make your, in your, in your brain these connection with your hand. And it will be easier for you to make this strumming pattern. And again, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down. Now don't try to make any charts. Just open strings, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down. Tried to make this exercise to avoid that your finger can stack in between the strings like this. It's incorrect direction. So tried to make that your fingers glide over like this. And also when you are going up, tried to avoid this situation when the stock in the strings that sounded gonna be signed like this. It's incorrect. Just to drive the glide strings like this. Next month. I went to recommend to you this strumming pattern. If you're blaming some balanced song. For example, I'm going to play right now using this strumming pattern with the charts from the previous lesson, part one, when we were learning the right shirts. Now it's going to be sound shorts, M, C, G, and D. And altogether it sounds like this. Then an up, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, up, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, up, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down. 10. 2nd pattern analysis: Here are the second string pattern, and it sounds like this. Here. We're going to use the worried cool trick, Sounds like a strumming mute. And we're going to learn it. So first of all, let's talk about our right-hand In this strumming pattern. Mostly we're going to use our down finger for going down and foregoing. So also tried to avoid the situation where you're heating, stacking in between the string slightly, just glide the strings blight. And the third part is striving commute. So here you have to use your nails for going down. And also in this situation you have, at this moment you have to use your of Tom Finger phone muting. So here you can see you're going down and at this moment you're using Jordan Tom finger like this. So an altogether it sounds like down, down, down, down, up, down, down, down, down. So let game, let's start where slow. Show your game down. Down with muting. Down, up, down, up, down, up, down, up music. And what if you train to do it's slow. Tried to do it fast. Down, up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, up now. And of course, the most difficult part in this strumming pattern is our palm muting. It's a trick that you have to understand how to do is show, I will show you a game down. Down. At this moment. Use your nails, heed the strings and after this moment, boot your finger over it like this. In the end of the position, your hand have to look like this. Open opening your pal. I would recommend to use this strumming pattern if you want to play some funky grazes songs. So let's play this strumming pattern using the ASM chart C, G, and E. Also go to the part one to learn how to play his charts. 11. 3rd pattern analysis: Here is the third strumming pattern. And I say that it's most difficult from these freelance, but it's more universal and it sounds like this. So let's talk about our right arm position. Already null position. Because for when we are going down where using our nails, when, when we are going up, we're using our finger. Sounds like this. But also again, drain like this. Do not stack between the straits. Just glided. And also when we're, when we're going up, also don't start between the strings. Just live it. Okay, now we're ready to practice. First of all, our show you. It's very slow. And also with comments. Tried to repeat after me. Down, down, up, up, down, down, down, up, up, up, down, down, up, down, down, up, up, down, up, down, down, up, up, up, down, down, up, down. And now we'll showed how it sounds fast. Down, down, up, up, down, down, up, down, down, up, up, up, down, down, up, down, down, up, up, up, down, down and down. So talking about the right arm position, it's not very difficult because we are not using any strumming, muse or something like this. Just an ordinary striking down using car nails and strumming up using our finger. So again, repeated very slow. I can instead that these strumming pattern, it's not easy, it's, but it sounds really cool is you can see. So again, down, down, up, up, down, then up, down, down, up, up, down, down, up, down, down, up, up, up, down, down, up, down, down, up, up, up, down, down, up, down. Now, up, up, down, down, up, down. I would recommend this strumming pattern for any song. I'm reusing this strumming pattern also in all songs because if you're Blaine gets slow, it's more lyric. Look, if you're blamed, get fast. It's more, it's Dr. songs like this. It sounds lyric gay. And now I'm going to show you how to play it fast. So villa difference is wearing universe, so strumming pattern, I will recommend to use it, it every song q plate. But also it's a great to learn the new ones. 12. + BONUS. How to use a pick?: So as I promised, as a bonus, I will show you how to use peak playing, these strumming patterns that we have learned already. First of all, let's speak about our position, how to hold the beak, both a beak on the point finger position. And after that, hold that Tom finger like this. But don't hold it for a solid, make it to move it easy like this. So when we are going down, just John to hold this big wears strong, just relax and make it the glad the streets like this. It's jumping from the first three to the second to the third. A DC. If you're holding the beat too strong, it going to sound like this. It's incorrect. Just make it. The light is 3x. So when you're going up, just rotate your hand like this and don't hold a beaker strong. Also relax your hand and live this, glide the string like this. When you change your position, also rotate your hand and go down. For a date. You go up or go down. And altogether, it sounds like this. It's the right position. If you're doing it, incorrect is going to sound like this. That means that you have to relax your hand. So now let's see how sounds our church, our storming patterns when we are using the peak. So the first one was down, down, down, down, up, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, up, down, down, then up, down, down, down, then up down. The third strumming pattern. For the second strumming pattern, where we are using cower moot streamed mute technique. We have to use our power to make this mute like this. So on signs like this, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down. You see, I'm using only the poem. It's harder to make this like this without the mediator, without the peak. When using beak, it's a little hard there, so we're just writing down, down, down, down mute. And fostered down, up, down, up, down, up, down, up mute. Okay. So when we are going to use this peak as it can inherit, beak makes our sound more deeper and more louder. And also it can hear the sound of plastic that's touching our streams. And mostly me dinner is using on the concert to make sound more deeper. If you're not on the concert. First of all, I tried to make the strumming patterns using only found the beak. It's that, I think that it's a next level. So first of all, practice without the peak. And after that tried to make this already known strumming patterns with a peak. 13. How patterns work in "Toss the coin to your witcher" song?: Now we know three strumming patterns that can be used in every cell. For example, we can play the song, does the coin to your, Which using these three are already known pathways. Johnson the coin to your, we'd show the meal plan to plan to who was the coin to your region while the plan, the Wiley or plenty, who does the coin to you? We choose while the two little rally or plan to, oh, whoa. So as you can here, you can choose the ever strumming pattern as we wrote. It just sounds a little bit different. I hope you learned something. You have a good day and good luck. 14. Introduction - FINGERSTYLE: Hi, my name is Alex. And today we are going to learn three basic baking batteries. And the first one sounds like this. The second one. The third button. Also. After that, I'm going to show you that wear beautiful melody using already now picking pattern. So, and it sounds like this. David guitar has, and let's do this. 15. First fingerpicking pattern (5-3-21-3): So if you're at the start, I am going to propose you to start with a beat loops thriving pattern. That's cause like for, it's called for because you are using only four steps for the speaking bothering. Sounds like this. 1234123412341234123412341234. Okay, analyst starts turning something. Let's go. So let's start with a theory. First of all, we're going to use our thumbnail finger for the 65 string. And these strings will be used for the boss in this spot turn that others strings so that we'll be using, it's streamed number three, number two and number one. But strings number two and number one, we will use at the same time like this. And this altogether sounds like this. 532136 bus, least rings, remember only as a bus. And altogether 5321363213532136, and tried to repeat it in every time a little bit faster. Again, remember that Tom Finger only for the bus and the first circle where using the five string, the seconds seven string, a sixth trimmed. And after that, again, five strings, 6353213632153236. And now I will show you how it sounds when you are changing the charts. They're already known charge a charge charts that we will learning in our first lesson. Check this out also. It's chart lambda m, c, g. And it sounds like this. I am C, G, E, G, B. And you're changing Gert shirt when you're hitting the boss strings, for example. And then you will change your fingers to the c chart and then use this G, E. And altogether. So now tried to repeat it on your own to make it in every time faster, faster and faster in game 532136321353213. And faster and faster N Let's go. 16. Second fingerpicking pattern (5-1-3-2): The second picking also called the four, because of yours only for positions for this building. But it's a little bit modernized and it sounds pretty cool. Chairs out. 123412341412341. And let's go. So here now let's go to the second pattern that also called for, because you use also for steps. But here it's selling, there'll be modernized. It sounds like this. So what is a difference? Here? You are using as a bass string, the five string. And at the same time you also using the first drink like this. It's a big thing like this. Try to repeat this is example. And after that, 5-1, 3.2.3, firewall 323513231234123412341234. Again, start tried to repeat it slowly. Do make our detrital great. And after that, you'll be able to make it faster and faster. 51323513235132, free Fire1, 3.2.3. And now I'll show you how it sounds with already known shirts. I see gene B. 17. Third fingerpicking pattern (5-3-2-1-2-3): Okay, now, you know that to picking patterns, but now I will show you the third one. That is the hardest one. Yeah, but I can explain why because it calls that aid because you use the eight steps and it sounds spray cool, China's out. Also, this picking pattern, you have to pay attention because our melody that will begin next step using these baking altered. So bare attention on these labs start. So now is the most difficult pattern, but it's the coolest one because it's really using CAN almost ONE lyric songs that you want to play. And also these pattern we will be using in our melody that we will be and teaching in the next step. So the first time I'll show it really slow hotspots. So as you can see here, we're using the eight steps, so it's called the eight is also where changing our bass shrink. The first director of five string and the second time as the sixth string. So as now step-by-step, firstly, 5321 to three bus, 321 to three bus. And it AC tried to repeat pro slope, 53212365321235321236321235321236. And now I'll show you how it sounds with really no charts. And C, G and E, 53223632123532123532. Wild Truth, free, end altogether. It feel it sounds very alert. 18. Beautiful melody for BEGINNERS and intermediate: Okay, now we're ready to start with our melody. That is our main goal of this lesson. And now let me demonstrate this melody from the beginning. Okay, we can split our melody all the two parts. And the first part sounds like this. We are using the E chart on these step. And let's talk about the streams. Streams number 543234, Jew free, 543234 to free. And the first step tried to make it really, really slow, 543234 to three. And in the each step, try to do it faster and faster. Moves to the next step. When you feel that you can do this step where freely, you don't have to think what your fingers are doing. So in a perfect its mass be sounds like this. Okay, and the second step, or the first part, and sounds like this. So what changed here? Not so much. In the first step, in the first hour step was we were using the E chart. Here. We must use that II am chart and do the same things. 54323423. And altogether it sounds like this. We are using that E shirt after that M E chart. A chart. And altogether tried to do it really fast. A churn, churn, churn chart. The second tip that we already know how to play, the first part. And it was that each shirt and after that a m shirt in smell at a sounds like this. Yeah, but we make it sounds more cool when we're using the hammer on and now listen how it sounds with a hammer. All difference. So, and now I will show you how to make this hover own trick, a hammer on will doing when we're using the ASM chart, it's these position. You can see the TPP Houghton take this chart. And at the moment, one where heating the second S3. We, you have to put your finger out from the Second Street. And when you hear the sound of the stream, you have to hear this dream. To make this out. Why is this called the hammer? All? You have to heat the string like a hammer, like this. And then you will get this very interesting sound. And again, I'll show you how it sounds in our melody first, bart, predicting coup. And again tried to repeat this trick separately without our melody. And after that, included in our malady trad jazz, he, this shrink while you make this sound. And after that, include in these our melody part. Okay? Okay, well this second step over the first Barth and sounds like this. So what changed here? Not so much. In the first step, in the first hour step was we were using the E chart. Here. We must use that II am chart and do the same things. 54323423. And altogether it sounds like this. We are using that E chert. After that a M E chart. M chart and altogether tried to do it really fast. A chart, am chart, each chart, a majority. Okay, let's move to our second step of our second part of this melody. And it's gonna be super easy goes, we have to go back to our DMP chart, goes into the previous step who were stopped in the c chart. And just make this easy manipulation with your right arm, starting from the fourth string. And the right arm and the left arm using the DM chart, go jazz down 4321. After that left hand, go to the EHR chart. And starting from the five string also go down 543 x2 at altogether sounds like this. 4321543243215432 on the EM EN chart.
