In this lesson we are going to use notes from the C major scale to get back and forth between two more chords: A minor and F major.

We are gradually going to build up to using the C major scale notes in between a total of four different chords. In each case we will use notes of the C major scale that help us "walk into" the root note of the chord we are targeting.

Notice that with the C major and A minor chords we used the single notes to "walk down" to the open A string. That gave us the right root note of the next chord, the A minor chord. Now on this current lesson we are using the notes D, E and F to "walk up" to the note F. This is the root note of the F chord, the chord we are targeting.
