Having Trouble With Chord Changes! Tips!

OK, so we invited Juice back onto the show to show us MORE strumming tips, questions, and answers! When changing chords on guitar there are a few ‘tips and tricks’ to keep in mind. Watch the video below for more:

Here’s help for switching between Chords:

1.) Slow down the tempo of the song. Alot of times the song will sound better. Learn to walk before you run! Then as you get comfortable slowly increase the tempo. It helps to use a metronome.

2.) Leave the first chord earlier, and play the second chord a tad later. Don’t FORCE yourself to play it like this, but its OK if you need to use this as a crutch. Don’t be afraid to play the open strings in between chords.

3.) Don’t stop. If you mess up during a gig, you should NEVER let your audience know. Likewise, if you make a mistake in strumming, simply keep on going. Don’t let your strumming hand stop – create a smooth transition!

4.) Everyday. This is the most important of all the tips – practice EVERYDAY! And have fun with it :) And pay it forward! Not once a week, not Monday, Wednesday, Friday. Do it EVERYDAY – because you get out of it what you put into it!
