Hi Sinisa
I am just on the first video of the Staus Quo lesson. On the third beat of every bar does the C5 became C6? Is this the name of the chord?
If I am right , I should listen to the backing track, when there is the snare drum there is the small change mentioned above, right?
Thanks a lot in advance.
Kindest regards
Carmine

Hi Carmine smile.gif

Right man , on the every third play that C '6' ,(A tone ). The C6 power chord is also two note interval, similar to the C5 but with a major sixth instead of a perfect fifth.In most cases it is in addition to the basic R'n'R power chord, and is rarely marked.

Hi Sinisa
I have another question regarding the Staus Quo lesson.
Occasionaly in the tune you play the 5th and 4th strings instead of the usual pattern of the 5 chords. I am not barring, so I find difficult to play that notes. Do you keep barring with your first finger or you do the bar just for that notes?
Thanks in advance

Hey Carmine smile.gif

Yes, I must say, on your way is a little harder, you should hold barring all the time. Try to stretch your fingers a bit more! Another important thing: your wrist should be bent as much as possible ,to get a proper riffing !!! I hope that this help smile.gif
Feel free to contact me any time for more info, if you need it !

Ok man smile.gif , your shot isn't bad at all. On the first place timing is good but still shaky somehow. You are using the clean sound,and it is one of the reasons which create that impression ! Try to add some overdrive above-that kind of tone is simply sticking to the bit and is much closer to this style of playing. Second, chords transition are major problems, try to slow down the rhythm and practice a few days, you will see how fast'll thrive. You must be patient, it is the basic thing. Simple - there is no mystery about this, you doing all good,but you just were eager to finish this, and I bet you can better wink.gif
