Fingerings for C, F and G7
The video above breaks down the fingerings for each chord we will need for the next songs: C, F and G7.
Chord Changes Exercise for Next Song
Practise changing chords for the next song. We’ll use the ‘Rock Beat’ strumming pattern:
| d – D – d – D – |
||: C | C | F | F | G7 | G7 | C | C :||
You could also replay this video, but instead of the ‘Rock Beat’ strum we use above, try playing ‘Wimpy Strong’. Those two strums synch up perfectly:
| d u D u d u D u |
1950’s Three Chord Medley:
Includes: Rock Around The Clock, Hound Dog and Folsom Prison Blues
Thoughts on practising:
- I take it pretty slow in the video so try and play along with it a few times.
- Then download the PDF with the lyrics and chords below and give it a shot on your own.
- Sing or hum each song in the medley while playing the chords and the strumming pattern. Admittedly, this is alot to do at once, but with a little bit of practise, it will start to come together for you.
