Break Free from "Normal" Chords 4

This is a nice twist on the old C rundown to G routine.

I use my R/H thumb for the bass notes and 1st finger to play the arpeggio but you could play the sequence many different ways.

This piece is actually in a mode of F major - notice that the G5 chord allows you to stay in this mode by avoiding the B note in a G major chord (or a weaker sounding G minor).

Angle your 3rd finger to touch and damp off the 5th string when playing the G5.
