[Music] what we're now going to play is that same scale so the G major scale and with everything we do in this whole series we're going to be playing the G major scale but now we're going to cover it with the C chord now as I've been doing this exercise I keep my middle finger down on this G chord as we're playing this because the next court is going to be a C chord and we're now going to have a look at how to play that same G major scale with the C chord or the root note of a C and the next string down so if you just play a normal C chord now tirely standard way of playing a sequence we don't need the first finger we don't really need the thumb on top though if that doesn't hamper you that's fine you may wish to have the thumb a little bit lower to keep everything ringing out but I find it comfortable to play like this because I have enough curl in my fingers right at the end of the fingers and the tips for this not to be an issue and then we played that exact same G major scale that we learned right at the start of the series [Music]

but with the root note and then the next string down so string five or four of a C chord [Music] and that was exactly what I played at the start of this video and right at the start of all this series going between the G Major scale with a G cause and change into that Secord [Music] changing back now as I say this series of videos has really increased in difficulty at a much greater pace than I would normally do in my videos if you've been following them for a little while but this is so effective at really blasting through some brick walls if you really if you really persevere with it and practice it in the correct manner have the correct amount of patience but also have vigilance with your plane don't let those mistakes become solid solidified in your plane you know practicing is just solidifying whatever it is you're practicing really it doesn't just mean you get better and so that's something to watch out for and then the real trickiest thing will

be the change between the G and the C and I really advise giving giving that some some width for now don't don't go for it do the g-major as we just have already done which is exercise six cycle that twice or maybe even four times and then change to the C chord and then the same thing but with the C chord [Music] you and change back to the G or or cycle the C but could change back to the G there [Music] and it's only when you've really got that down that these two lift off when that little fingers gone down I move to the C chord [Music] [Music] [Music]
