I really like this lesson. It really teach you how to change chord mid strum. I think thats my biggest issues. I like four beats per chord but it does not work that way lol.

I am going to stay on this lesson but a bit longer.

Sounds good. Don’t be afraid to go back at any time and review. Sometimes the second time around is where you’ll see the biggest progress.

WOW Great lesson! Really like the new strumming pattern and the speed up on going through the measures. Tomas i kept my third finger anchored on the B string for the A major, just slid it over after making the G major, can we do it that way?
Thank You

Thanks, Rogelio. I don’t understand the fingering you described but in general, if it works it’s likely just fine.

This is great. Getting to know the chord families is making my playing much more coherent and I am a lot more confident. Thank you.

This is a great lesson series. I’ve learned so much more about chord families than I’ve ever been taught before. Thank you for the bite- sized pieces in these lessons! Just excellent….you are a gifted teacher, Thomas!

Thanks Patricia. Learning chord families and the next step, common chord progressions, help me make a big leap in my playing. I’m happy to share this with you. I squeezed a lot into the 5th adventure. Feel free to review some of the lessons from time to time.

If you’re up for it I recommend heading onto the course bar chords for everyone. I’ve applied the same “bite- sized pieces” technique. With the ability to comfortably play barre chords you’ll make another big leap.

Also, I recommend venturing into the Monthly Practice Sessions (Guitar Gym). You’re ready now. An important point is you don’t have to master each lesson. There’s a system that’s not obvious. I recommend reading this first. https://realguitarsuccess.com/secret-weapon-2-the-guitar-gym/
