time what we are going to do is ... we're going to do something
a little bit different with our right hand. I'm also going
to change the pattern on the right hand, and add what we
call an alternate base. So we're going to go from one base
note to another base note. So let's get into it...
so remembering we were going from our Am (A minor)
shape into our C shape, and we're going to just move
that third finger to achieve that shape. Let's take a look
at the right hand. Finger Picking Pattern No 1, we just
simply went base note, first, second, third, that's thumb,
first, second, third. What we're going to do this time around
is base note, first, second, third, second, first. So we
get this kind of a pattern happening on our Am chord....
Now if I change into my C chord keep that motion
going we get this... Am chord, changing onto the
to achieve an alternative base, all I'm going to do here
is just simply go: base note on the A, base note on the
D string, that will give me an E note. So that we got on
the Am chord base note, go to the D string, back
to the A string, down to the D string, change chords, C
chord, alternating that base, ...
let's take a look at it just a little bit faster and see
what it sounds like.
I've said before guys, the thing to remember here is we
want a nice even right patter, nice even left hand chord
change, so don't rush it, have fun and we'll talk to you
