Let’s review yesterday’s lessons and practice more strumming. Remember to first set yourself up properly with good posture and hand positions, making sure that each string rings cleanly when you finger the chord.
Then, go ahead and down strum with me. After that, we’ll do some down-up strumming together. Nothing will make this knowledge stick better than a little review, so get used to it! It’s not just a matter of mental memory, but muscle memory as well.
We’ll also add the E Major chord. This is also a relatively easy chord to learn, but unlike the A, your first finger goes in the first fret. The other two will be in the 2nd fret, but they need to shift strings.
