Just a little more ear training...

The key to learning music well is to use your ears. Don't forget that music is about sound and listening so this part of your guitar study will help you a lot more than you will realise initially.

REMEMBER to stop the vid right after the chord you are trying to identify because...

The Last Thing You Hear, Stays In Your Ear!

Take it slow and don't expect results too quickly, it will take some time develop your listening skills.

Chord Quality Recognition (CQR)

It's going to get a little tricky now, because we are going to include sus chords in this exercise. You will need to play these chords a lot on your own and really try to listen deeply. When you have listened a lot, they will become very obvious because they have a very distinct sound!

Sound Pallete: Major or Minor, 7, Maj7 and also Power Chords (5th) and Sus chords.

Single Sound Recognition (SSR)

This exercise is also going to be tricky because we are including ALL chords we have covered so far in this so you have quite a few choices. Think of this as a little test. Can you do it?

Chord Pallette: Every chord we have covered in this beginners course! including slash chords and sus chords!

Chord Progression Recognition (CPR)

Now the progressions are a little longer: can you work them out? These are based on real songs. All I have all I have done is remove the strumming patterns which are best studied separately. Good luck!
