Practice Tip of The Day!!

by Tim Fogarty on 03/02/12

When first learning how to switch between chords I advise to follow this simple strategy. 1. Choose the first two chords you are working on. We will say E and A for this tip. 2. Place your fingers on the E chord and then slowly lift your fingers and place them on the A chord. Try and do this with all fingers moving at once. One finger at a time switching will slow you down. 3. Speed is not important at this point. Accuracy and clean sounding chords are our goal. 4. Move back and forth between these two chords while strumming each one only once. Pay close attention so you can make sure your chords are cleanly played and each note is audible. 5. Get faster only as you get better at switching. 6. Once you can move freely between these two chords add more chords to the mix one at a time.
7. Next thing you know you will be switching with ease. 8. Ask any questions below that you would like on this subject. Thank!!! Tim

We here at Smith and Whitley Music would like to thank all of our customers for a great 2011.  In these tough economic times your loyalty and patronage has enabled us to continue to serve our community.  We have some great things in store for the New Year.  Kirby has expanded our Banjo and Mandolin wall to include some vintage instruments.  Many new products will make their appearences this year.  We are even redecorating a bit to create a fresh atmosphere in the store.  Our lesson program is as strong as ever, and we would love to teach you or a family member the wonders of playing a musical instrument.  Contact us for lessons in Guitar, Banjo, Mandolin, Bass, Piano, Uke, and Harmonica.  Lessons can be great for anyone.  Newly retired folks can pick up a great hobby, and kids can learn a skill that will last a lifetime.  Thanks again from the staff here at Smith and Whitley Music.  We are excited about 2012, come check out the new stuff. :)
