We'll get started by learning these chords: G, C, D, A7 and E minor. We'll note good hand shape and discuss techniques that will quickly build independence and accuracy.

We'll go into detail about building muscle memory and dexterity by taking a good hard look at the 5 chords we are working with today. We'll be thinking about how to use our fingers (the thumb too!) wisely.

Let your fingers do the walking, your whole left side will try to help, but don't let it! We are training the small muscles in the hand for dexterity.
