In this lesson we'll review our major scale from the previous tutorial and locate the 1st 4th and 5th scale degree which will form the basis for our 1 4 and 5 chords.

Let's do a simple example where use our 8th note downstroke strumming pattern and play our I-chord, A, for 2 bars, then 2 bars of the IV-chord, then 2 bars of the V-chord E, and finally 2 bars of the I-chord, A.

Let's try this out with a simple backing track. This is simple stuff, so make sure to put all your attention on the function of each of the chord changes. Here
