Some chords actually share a note in common.

This can often be tricky to spot, because we think of each chord as such a separate entity.

But if you can discover a shared note, be sure and leave your finer down on that note as you go from the first chord to the second chord. This will make the switch much easier to do.

Important: in some of the demonstrations in this set of lessons, I show my "shared-note" finger , and pull my other fingers out of the way so that you can clearly see what I am doing.

However, that "pulling away" motion is for demonstration purposes only!

Ultimately, you always want to keep your fingers as close to the fingerboard as possible, and watch NOT to develop a habit of letting them pull away from the neck. That will only end up costing you time, and orientation, as you go.
