Since we've now covered all the basic open chords,
plus power chords, and now the B
minor chord, there are a countless number of songs to tackle. This
week's songs will be focus on both open and power chords.
a Rolling Stone - performed by Bob Dylan
NOTES: Try strumming this one as Down, Down, Down, Down up. Some rather
quick chord changes in this song will keep you on your toes!
Tonight - performed by Eric Clapton
NOTES: Here's a nice easy one. Strum chords 8x downwards
each, with a few exceptions (use your ears to tell you which ones).Instead
of D/F#, play Dmajor. If you're brave, you can try the lead guitar part
(it's not that hard).
California - performed by The Eagles
NOTES: okay this one is tough... since it uses a Bminor,
and many other chords. There is also a new chord: F#, which you'll play
like this: play an Fmajor chord, and slide your fingers up one fret
(so your first finger is barring the first and second strings, second
fret).. only play strings four through one for this chord. When you
see Bm7, play Bminor. Good luck!
- performed by The Red Hot Chili Peppers
NOTES: This song is surprisingly easy. Learn the opening
single note riff, and the chords (don't worry about the notes below
the chords for now). Strum chords: down, down up, up down up.
