Like lesson 5, here is a simple exercise using inside/outside picking. These lessons may seem easy at first glance, but don’t underestimate how important they are for a new guitarist. Developing proper technique now will save you hours of frustration later.

Chords and Rhythm:

Here we have two new chords and a whole world to explore. If you haven’t done so already, I would suggest that you start looking for songs that have a slower tempo and contain many of the chords you have learned up to this point. Keep the songs easy but enjoyable. Over time and as you progress, you will get closer and closer to sounding like your favorite artist.
