FUN G Chord Strength Exercise [beginner guitar lesson]


This follow along exercise is focused
on you making music with a single chord, the g chord, okay. And more importantly it’s going to get
you super comfortable with the g chord and get your fingers to develop
strength within this chord shape. One of the things that happened to me
when I was playing when I was first starting and learning chords is that
you learn one chord and feel really cool about it and feel, feel great, but it
kind of flat lines and it feels like, okay, well now that I have the
cord, what do I do with it? Well, this exercise changes that because it’s
going to allow you to play music with this chord shape. So this is just one lesson in a series
where I’ll take you from zero to guitar player in 30 days by teaching you the
four super fun skills that’ll get you hooked on guitar. Before you get started, you’ll need to download the tabs course
guide and 30 day checklist to get yours. Just click on the link in the video or
visit 30 days to play.com so what I want you to do is make the g shape.
Okay, beautiful. G shape, third fret of the high e, third fret
of the beat, second front of the, a third front of the low Eaton. Make
sure it’s nice and clean and clear. And what we’re going to do
with this exercise is we’re
going to do two strums on this shape. [inaudible] starting from the [inaudible]
going through the high e. Then you’re going to drop your index
finger one string and your middle finger one string. So your index finger is going
to move to the second fret of the d. Your middle finger is going to move to
the third fret of the A and you’re going to do two strums on this shape. [inaudible] your pinkie and your ring finger are gonna
stay in the same place for this whole exercise. Then you’re gonna
move your index finger down, one more string to the second
front of the g middle finger, down to the third fret of the d. And
you’re going to do two strums here. [inaudible] they’re going to do two strums on each
of these shapes and why it’s building strength for the g chord is because
your pinkie and your ring finger are operating as the anchor point and you’re
getting used to kind of moving your index and middle finger. One of the essential things that
every cord kind of has. Okay. You want to have the strength, the base and then you want to have these
fingers that well you keep them kind of nimble but in a way moving them is
actually developing strength as well. So two strums on each shape.
So we’ll go to strengths [inaudible] she was drums on the next shape,
who’s jumps on the next shade? And then we’ll go down, uh,
w rather, we’ll reverse it. So two more strums on that high shape [inaudible] too on the other shape.
[inaudible] and two on that final g [inaudible]. This is just one lesson in a series

four super fund skills that’ll get you hooked on guitar. Before you get started, you’ll need to download the tabs course
