All right.
So, we've covered, playing some single
notes, just one note at a time.
And now we'll just do a quick overview of
playing multiple notes at the same time,
also known as chords.
But this, we're just gonna demonstrate
playing two notes, and
then three notes at the same time.
So, there's a couple different ways you
could do this.
You can do a pinch, [SOUND] which is using
all three fingers, [SOUND] like so.
Or you could do a strum.
[SOUND] Or maybe you just use your thumb
pick and strum three notes.
[SOUND] They have a little different
[SOUND] That's the strum, [SOUND] and
there's the pinch.
So, [SOUND] you can practice just using
these two fingers.
For instance, if I'm gonna play two notes
together, I might do something like this,
these two fingers, [SOUND] or these two,
[SOUND] or all three together.
So, we're gonna cover this,
a little bit more in depth later.
But I just wanted to show you a few
examples of how we might use
multiple strings, to play multiple notes
at the same time.
