Daily Guitar Practice 3 Happy Birthday
Today I will practice a really simple version of the song Happy birthday for ear training. And C scale is added to warm up after walking the notes.
A chord, D chord, and E chord are still on the list. Since these are my first set of chords, I’d like to spend more time on them. And the song I walk the line by Johnny Cash is a good practice for the chords.
- Finger stretch.
- Walking the notes.
- C Scale.
Revision: A, D, E Chords
- Left hand: positions of fingers.
- Right hand: all down strumming & base - down up.
Revision: I Walk The Line by Johnny Cash
- Chords: E A E A D A E A
- All down strum, 4 strums (1 bar) for each chord.
Ear training: Happy Birthday.
