HI ALL,

I apologize for the dumb question but here it goes.In the videos as the teacher plays there are notes
in the top corner.These notes are constantly changing.Please someone explain to me what this means.
I expect that its something obvious so try not to laugh.I appreciate any help on the subject.

It's usually the name of the chord that the instructor is playing over.

Okay... Dude questions like this. I have only one thing to say.

This question would be stupid if you didn't ask it and ONLY then! Not knowing how to benefit from these letters is tremendously much more stupid than asking the question. Don't excuse your stupidity for not knowing everything because there's no need. I mean not knowing something doesn't make you stupid. Not trying to find out may qualify into that category though (some times) and appearently you don't fall into the category of stupid.

It is not dumb question smile.gif You pay for membership and are entitled to ask any question you want. Thats the way I see it anyways. Also the question you asked (regarding letters on videos) is perfectly valid because if you follow that harmony and analyze melody in relation to it, your lesson experience becomes much richer in my opinion wink.gif

Its good that you asked here in the open. Those are chords playing in the backing. I'm sure you are not the only one wondering that.

Whatever you need to ask, please don't hesitate, we are here to help each other out, not bash everybody cause they do not know something that we do.
These letters are usually chords that are within the backing, but on screen text can contain various other info as well, specially in the slow videos (videos that are not the main video in the lesson, marked 1, 2, 3, 4 etc).
If have any more questions please ask, we will gladly help you.

There are no dumb questions. Only bumb people who do not ask, and thus make wrong assumptions by themselves =)

You could count them if you like. Do you think you would benefit from it?

Yeah, totally. That's definitely not a stupid question at all. I hope I didn't come across as "yeah, that's a stupid question, but here's an answer anyway."

Like everyone else said, it's important to ask questions here. Not only do you get an answer, but you help everyone else that may have been wondering. I don't think that information is written anywhere and i didn't get it right away. But it didn't keep me from learning the lessons. So I just ignored them for a while. But it's so useful... If I found this post, I would have been able to learn from those chord indicators earlier and be ahead of where I am now. So thanks for bringing it up.
