This is Part 4 of a four part series to help you expand your chord vocabulary.
In this 4th and final part we’ll put it all together with the Major 7th Exercise.
I’ve used this exercise with hundreds of students and it got great results. Part of the reason it works so well is that it’s a progression you’ll find in popular music. For that reason it makes sense in your ears when you hear the chords together.
By practicing this exercise you’ll not only get better at playing the chords but you’ll be practicing a smooth transition from one chord to the other.
Practicing exercises like this is a very efficient way to use your practice time and works better than either practicing individual chords or practicing songs where you only get to use the chord once in awhile.
