E Major – B7:
E Major and B Dominant 7th are two of the most common chords used for playing the blues. At the end of this lesson we’ll trace the blues back to it’s roots by learning how to play an old song of the South.
- Memorize the fingering for the E and B7 chords covered in this lesson.
- Learn how to move back and forth between the chords using your 2nd finger as an “anchor” finger.
- Train your ear to distinguish the difference between the sound of the E Major chord and the B7 chord.
- To be able to play through each of the exercises until you can move easily from E to B7 without missing the beat.
Playing a simple “turn-around” in the key E may be a little challenging at first. If you have difficulty keeping up with me, just pause the video and practice the chords at your own speed until you feel comfortable with them. When you’re ready, return to the video and try again. Accuracy is more important than speed.
