Chord strumming with metronome
To strum along with other musicians, it's important to be able to play in tempo. A metronome is a common training tool for improve your tempo feel. Here you can play with an metronome that instead for the somewhat boring click sound uses sounds from a drum kit.
Some progression (you can of course replace these with other chords):
F – G – C – E
Em – Bm – C – D – G
D – Dmaj7 – G – Gmaj7
D – D/B – A – F#m – Em7 – A7 – D
F – C – A – Dm – Bb – C – F
C – Caug – F – Fm – C – G7
Chose a tempo with the metronome, bpm is abbreviation for beat per minute.
|120||hi-hat (8ths), bass drum|
|120||hi-hat (8ths), bass drum, snare|
|120||hi-hat (8ths), bass drum, bass (E key)|
|120||hi-hat (8ths), bass drum, snare, bass (E key)|
|140||hi-hat (8ths), bass drum, snare, bass (E key)|
It's recommended that you start in a slow tempo and gradually increase. This is a great way to learn and conquer progressions.
The last metronome examples with bass can be used for rock and blues foremost.
