Easy Chords And Melody 5


This is an old blues song also known as "See See Rider" and "E Z Rider".

With the exception of the "turnaround"[ the last 2 bars ] it uses basic open chords with the little finger getting some melody notes.

Here I am just strumming through the chords to get the melody notes but you could use the R/H thumb and finger technique discussed in the previous lesson.

In the turnaround use your 1st finger as a barre on strings 2,3 and 4 then add a finger on string 3 to get the diminished chords - in the tab it says to use finger 2 but you may notice in the video clip that I use finger 3 - Either is fine, use what feels best for you.
