Guitar Stuff for 10.2.19

 

1) Warm-up: Permutations (below)

 

2) 7th chords -- "Golden Slumbers".  You can find the tab here and the song here. If you don't remember the chords, you can click on them on the tab and they'll show up.

 

3) Continue practicing "How's It Gonna Be".  You can find the chords here - please ignore the terrible commentary and incorrect tab for that lead part.

 

PERMUTATIONS

The purpose of these exercises is to isolate and correct any fingering, strength, or mental discrepancies in your playing.  Feel free to try switching notes around once you feel confident with these! Use a metronome and start at 60 BPM.  Try to do one five times with no mistakes before moving on.
