In The Beginning: 5
In this lesson, we practice our 6 chords in 2-chord pairs, becoming fluent with every possible pairing:
Pairing C with: F, G, Am, Dm, Em.
Pairing F with G, Am, Dm, Em.
Pairing G with Am, Dm, Em.
Pairing Am with Dm, Em.
Pairing Dm with Em.
Get comfortable with each of this, as shown in the video. Then just sit around and randomly go from chord to chord. These 6 chords are all derived from the C major scale, and therefore they sound good together. See if you can figure out which chords sound like “home base” (good “ending” chords) as you’re playing through them!
