Whole And Half Notes

Now let's try combing the whole notes you already know with half notes. First let's grab our E minor chord and strum that twice as whole notes. Then we'll switch to our A minor chord and strum four half notes.

After that we'll repeat our two whole notes on E minor, then repeat our four half notes on A minor. After that we'll end on an E minor chord that we let ring.

Now let's try this together. I'll do a one-bar count-in (which you now know means 4 counts) and then we'll start the example. Feel free to just watch and listen before you start playing along, if you prefer.
