Now we are ready to try our chord progression using E major shaped barre chords along with a backing track. The progression uses the chords G major, C major and D major.

Again, prepare to count 1, 2, 3, 4, slowly and evenly. We will play each chord on the downbeat of each measure, the count of 1. We will play each chord twice in a row. The progression will be G major chord twice, C major twice, G major twice, D major twice, then repeat the whole thing.

Again, remember to keep counting! It is very important to the learning process. And it will help you eventually make keeping time and a background rhythmic pulse an automatic process for you. It will eventually become second nature to you. The tempo of this backing track is 80 BPM (Beats Per Minute).

You can play or download the backing track as an audio file (MP3) near the bottom of the page.
