  • Hello GMC!
    In this lesson I try to explain how to play a chord progression with fingerstyle technique.
    I chose a set of chords that are common in jazz music. As you know, in this style chords are often extended.
    This means that a chord should contain four or more different notes.
    So, this lesson could be useful for beginners that don't know this type of chords.
    You must play lower notes with your right thumb: in this way, you can obtain a kind of "walking bass" effect.
    It's important to play with triplet feel (swing eighth notes).
    As usual, I made a Guitar Pro file with chord diagrams.
    Also, you can find three backing tracks with different tempo.

    Time signature: 4/4
    Tempo: 120 bpm
