How To: Play a G, Em, C and D chord progression on the guitar

Play a G, Em, C and D chord progression on the guitar

This video teaches a simple chord progression consisting of 4 simple chords, G, Em, C and D to learn up to 5 songs. The principle I will illustrate in this video is that popular music often is based on standard chord patterns, or intervals. To demonstrate this, I will play the end part of Led Zeppelin's "Stairway To Heaven" and go right into Jimmy Hendrix's "All Along The Watchtower" -- without changing chords or tempo!

I will show you 3 strums to use with the chord progression, a regular strum, a bass note strum, and a strum that adds a droning note that is carried throughout the entire progression. I will also discuss fingering techniques to add to the chord progression as an exercise to train and add dexterity
