The Justinguitar Beginners Course...
Now we’ve got ‘air changes’ to work in, too.
At this stage, you need to pick five chords that you struggle to change between and just work on those. Everyone is different, and finds certain chords harder than others, so it is next to impossible for me to tell you which ones you should do!
1 Minute Changes
You have now learnt 17 chords, and there are many possibilities for changes now—in fact, over 100 combinations— so how do you choose which changes to do?
Well, what I would recommend is that you look for chords that you find difficult that appear in a song that you are learning or want to learn. That way
A A with barre E Am Em Dm G C G7 C7 B7 Fmaj7 A7 D7 E7 E7 with high D
you are working on chord changes that you will actually use.
So pick some chords, write them into your practice routine and off you go!
Usually I recommend a student can stop doing the One-Minute Changes once they reach 60 changes in a minute (playing each chord 30 times). The diagram below shows all the chords covered so far, so what I recommend is ticking them off when you have achieved the 60 changes per minute and then working on the ones you struggle with the most. Again, a very important rule for practice which definitely applies here is:
Next up we are going to look at a new kinda rhythm in BC-155 • Triplet Rhythms

I have four great beginners products that will help you make the most of this course. Most popular is The Justinguitar Beginners Songbook which contains 100 songs arranged by difficulty that perfectly match up with each level of the course. Many people told me they like books more than web pages so we've made The Justinguitar Beginners Course Book (comes with 2 x CD's too!) and many people found being online to watch the videos a pain so we offer The Justinguitar Beginners Course DVD which also means you can watch the vids in much better quality. Together they complete the whole online course and are perfect when there is no internet connection!! Also very popular is Practical Music Theory for those that like to know what they are doing and why!! It covers very basic theory in an easy to digest way and puts it onto the guitar!
