Tracing the 1-4-5 on the Inside Strings
When using double stops to outline a basic chord progression, you may notice that there are no new double stop shapes. Each shape we are using here is one of the three learned in the previous lesson. The difference is the order in which the shapes appear and the fingers used to play them. Pay close attention to the video for suggested fingerings, but you can use whatever works for you and your hands. Pause the player and practice these slowly. Make sure you are applying enough pressure just behind the fret to get a clean note. Don't apply more pressure than is needed. When you feel comfortable, start using some tremolo and playing with the metronome.
Quick theory lesson The reason this chord progression is called a 1-4-5, is because the chords used are based on the 1st, 4th, and 5th note of the G scale. The notes in the G scale are: G A B C D E F# (G). Therefore in the Key of a G, our 1-4-5 is G, C, and D.
