Now,
lets do F major.
F major this is in root position, so
we're gonna start on the low F, and
we're gonna play the F major triad,
the Arpeggio.
And we're only gonna go up to C.
So, again we're staying in the lower
positions just to play these broken
chords Arpeggios,
in a way that gives you the feeling of
crossing strings with your right hand,
and being able to keep your position
as we cross over the diferrent strings.
Here's F major.
[SOUND] One, first finger on F.
[SOUND] Open A.
[SOUND] Check that C
with the fourth finger.
[SOUND] Fourth finger on F.
[SOUND] Second finger on A.
[SOUND] Fourth finger on C.
[SOUND] Back to second finger on A.
[SOUND] Fourth finger on F.
[SOUND] Fourth finger on C.
[SOUND] Fourth finger on F.
[SOUND] Fourth finger on C.
[SOUND] Open A.
[SOUND] Low F, first finger.
[SOUND] Fourth finger on C.
[SOUND] Open A.
[SOUND] And low F.
There's one other fingering I
wanna show you for this one.
Which is going up the D
string a little bit.
And this one goes like this.
It's low F.
[SOUND] Open A.
[SOUND] Fourth finger on C.
And then first [SOUND] finger on F.
[SOUND] Fourth finger on A.
[SOUND] And first finger on C.
[SOUND] Fourth finger on A.
[SOUND] We could play second
finger coming down on F.
[SOUND] And second finger on C.
[SOUND] And open A.
[SOUND] Fourth finger on C.
[SOUND] Open A.
[SOUND] F.
[SOUND] Now, I'm gonna play the original
fingering just straight through,
so you get hear the shape on
the sound of the F major.
[MUSIC]
There's F major.
