Jamorama Book 2, Lessons 8, 9 & 10
Lesson 8 of Jamorama Book 2 introduces minor key barre chords. It also stresses the importance of taking the time to really master the basics before going on to more advanced techniques – obvious really, but so many people want to get to the ‘good stuff’ asap, and end up learning bad habits that just take even more time to undo later. This lesson finishes with a fairly long jam track with a nice mellow vibe.
Lesson 9 is a short one, and is devoted to scales, with several new ones being discussed. Some might find scales a bit boring, bit I think that playing them can be enjoyable if you really focus on what you’re doing. Plus you need to learn them to progress as a guitarist, so it’s probably best to find ways of making scale practice as much fun as you can!
Lesson 10 discusses dominant 7 barre chords, as well as some more basic music theory.
