After warming up with Caney Mi Macara and C'Etait Anne De Bretagne, we review the chords in a major key (pg 2 #2)
We then looked at an arrangment of the song Oh, How Happy You Have Made Me - a song sung by the Shades of Blue from 1966 (and later the Jackson 5). Below is a youtube recording of it. (I apologize if I overwhelmed you with this exercise but next week we will continue with the same chords and strum, and different songs).
In this song we are looking at the following things:
* Learning a Reggae strum
* Playing partial chords - we don't play the G string in the arrangment
* Using one major chord shape and one minor chord shape and moving them up and down the neck to change chords.
I have attched my workshop for this song (below). Please look at it even if you were in class because I have added or changed a few things.
For next week practice:
* Oh How Happy You Have Made Me
* Your F scale across the neck
* Hornpipe (pg 12)
* Chord changes on pages 7, 10 and 11 (The Ryans and the Pittmans)
