6.3 Combining All Three Chords - G, C, and D video

Tunefox Mandolin Lesson #6

Now that you know three chords on the mandolin, let's put them all together!

The chord progression you're learning today is GDCD. Before trying to play with the tab, just strum once through that progression. Isolate the chord changes and smooth them out if need be. For this exercise, you'll strum four times on each chord.

Push the play button underneath the tab to listen to the chord progression, then play along. If you need to slow it down to get the transitions between chords smooth, then move the tempo slider to a lower speed.
