In the first half of a measure of 4/4 music, you'll play the standard bass note for whatever chord you are playing. In the second half of the measure, you'll play an alternate bass note.
On a C chord, your alternate bass note will be G (6th string, 3rd fret).
On an F chord, your alternate bass note will be C (5th string, 3rd fret).
On a G chord, your alternate bass note will be D (4th string, open).
On an D chord, your alternate bass note will be A (5th string, 3rd open).
For the purposes of this series, we'll stick with the bass/down-up strum technique as a backdrop for adding in these other ornamentations.
In the next lesson, we'll put these techniques to work in context. We'll ramp up the speed a bit, and play a song in the key of C with a country band.
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
