[MUSIC]
Okay,
we're gonna move on to D.
We're gonna change chords, we're gonna
use the backing track with this as well.
[COUGH] We're gonna go D to G to A,
that's one, four, five, in D.
So we'll start,
we're gonna use similar kinda ideas as
we did with each of these other chords,
as far as the positions goes,
what positions go with changing them.
So, we're gonna start with D.
[MUSIC]
Little
rhythm lick here.
So we're gonna hit the low of the middle
D string, open D string [SOUND].
We're gonna pluck the D note on
the third fret of the B string, and
the A note on the second fret of the G
string together with these two fingers.
So, [SOUND] And then with our
ring finger we're gonna go F.
[MUSIC]
So F
[MUSIC],
F sharp
[MUSIC],
these two together
[MUSIC],
and we're gonna hammer on
[MUSIC].
Well actually, this is not a hammer on,
this is gonna be a direct
hit with these two.
So
[MUSIC],
we're gonna go from the A note to the B
note with our ring finger.
[MUSIC]
And then we're hitting
this twice again, we're going.
[MUSIC]
Because just like in previous lessons,
we're peddling off of that D string
to keep this rhythm rolling.
So it's down
[MUSIC]
Pluck
[MUSIC]
Two down stokes with the pick.
[MUSIC]
And then,
[MUSIC]
Strike it again.
[MUSIC]
And then back to D again.
[MUSIC]
So
[MUSIC]
So that's our lick, and
I'll do it really slow.
[COUGH]
[MUSIC]
So that's that.
So now, when we move to G,
[MUSIC]
Up.
[MUSIC]
To A,
[MUSIC]
[COUGH] So you notice
when we're on D,
we're not using
really any blues notes
except that little
F walk-up
[MUSIC].
It's staying pretty major there.
[MUSIC]
But when we get to the fourth chord.
[MUSIC]
We're adding that little seventh in
there to give it the flavor
of that G seven.
[SOUND] On the four chord, makes it
a little bluesier and a little funkier.
So the D riff,
[MUSIC]
To A,
[MUSIC].
So that's those three together.
Now let's play this along with
the backing track together.
>> One, two, three.
[MUSIC]
