My first attempts at strumming D major and E minor

Posted on Updated on

Here are my first attempts at playing the D major and E minor chords. Pretty bad. I’ll continue to practice slowly alternating between the two chords and then I’ll attempt to record an Asynchronous Jam with the Class Recording: Strumming D major and E minor. Then, I’ll learn A minor.

    Nice! Keep at it! The chords sound nice and clean, and the strings seem to be ringing out, such that I can hear each note for the most part. Keep working at the fingerings and switching from one to the other. It’s amazing how soon, you’ll not have to think about it, your fingers will find the positions on their own.

      Thanks Colin!
      The most challenging thing for me now is fingering and switching between chords. I’m also not if I’m strumming the right way either!
      o.O
      More practice!

    I’d say that’s coming along, Rowan – nice job! I agree, it sounds like you’ve got a good left-hand positioning (that makes each of the notes ring), and a steady hand on the tempo. As you say, it’s all about putting it together now: practice practice practice!

    Hopefully we’ll have some more recordings up for you to follow along with early in the week.

    Keep at it!
