Chord Anticipation

Let's start in the simplest end of the spectrum and explore a very common example of a chord anticipation.

We play an A minor chord, then switch to an E minor chord. Normally we'd switch on beat 1 of a new bar or on beat 3 of the same bar.

Instead let's strum the A minor chord on beat 1, then hit the E minor chord on the 'and' of beat 2.

The most important part of this exercise is to count out loud. It's not enough to just strum along with me, because then you may not have the rhythm fully internalized.
