Reply To: Learning Chords on Cluck Old Hen
Joanne, you sound really good and steady, and that’s a Great first attempt as you describe it! This is certainly not an easy skill. I’ve been working on chorded double stops as well, and it’s a challenge.
I feel so bad that I missed Saturday’s student hangout session with you guys!! Would have loved to have heard the chord chat you mentioned. Been on a crazy hectic schedule lately and somehow I got it in my head that the fifth was on Sunday. After really practicing for the hangout, when I went to sign in on Sunday I couldn’t believe it had happened on Saturday. My mistake.
Anyway, your chords are great and thanks for sharing this. By the way, I’ve watched people playing together who do just what you did on this tune, alternating between the melody and the chords.
