In this lesson we add the C Major chord to our repertoire.
This is as classic as it gets! Check out Skid Row’s, ”I Remember You” to hear how it’s applied to a brilliant song. They also add what are called “embellishments” to the chords by playing different notes in between the strumming. Embellishments are used to spice up your playing and you should definitely try moving your fingers around to try and create little melodies or “riffs” within the basic strumming patterns We will dig into this a little more later but it is crucial in developing a good musical ear to try and figure this stuff out on your own. This process is called “transcribing” which means to copy what you see or hear. Try transcribing the intro to the Skid Row song mentioned above..... you already know the chords
