But we figured since he's here, we might as well film some shorterlessons as well for everyone. And so today's lesson is titled,Seven Gospel Beats That You Must Know. And obviously this isn'tevery single gospel beat, but
this is just seven really important ones. gt;gt; Yeah.gt;gt; And before we get into that,how long have you been playing drumsé gt;gt; My goodness.LAUGH I started drumming when I was two years old. gt;gt; In churché gt;gt; No, not in church.
Started drumming in church at four. gt;gt; Okay. Great, and you areé gt;gt; 29. gt;gt; 29, so, 25 years. gt;gt; Yeah. gt;gt; Okay, so he's a pretty qualifiedguy to teach this lesson. gt;gt; LAUGHgt;gt; So this is gonna be an awesome lesson,

That kind of sound, that kind of pattern. And also, if you're looking fora sound or an artist or a group to check out thatcan give you that sound. You can look to groups like Mighty Cloudsof Joy, it's an older group. Or you could check out the Gaithers,that's another group that would definitely give you that kind of a country gospelsound or southern gospel sound. gt;gt; Cool. And so, let's hear this.

Common Chord Progressions Rhythm Guitar Lesson 7
Welcome to tutorial 7 of the Rhythm Guitar QuickStartSeries. In this lesson, we're going to put the bar chords that you've been workingon to use by playing through some of the most common chord progressions that you're goingto be exposed to as a rhythm guitarist. Being able to use your bar chords to play throughcommon chord progressions like this is going to be really useful when you show up to agig, where you're just jamming with your friends, when you're learning a song thatyou don't really know, or if you're playing a church gig or something like that.We're not going to get too much into the theory of this right now but I do want tomake sure that you have some basic things
down. For this lesson, we're going to bein the key of G. That just means that the G note is going to be our tonic home baseor root note. We're going to cover three basic chord progressions. The first one iscalled the 1, 4, 5; the second one is called the 1, 5, 6, 4; and the third one is calledthe 2, 5, 1. These numbers just refer to the chords in a certain key and like I said we'renot going to get too much into the theory of it right now but just be aware that everymajor key has seven chords available to you that you can choose from that occur naturallyin that key and those chords can be represented by the number one through seven.We're going to use the four bar chords that
you've learned so far to play through theseprogressions and this may seem a little bit foreign to you or a little bit difficult butstick with me throughout this and by the end of the lesson it will start to make more senseto you. Closer to the end of this lesson, you're going to start to see how being ableto move bar chords around like this through these chord progressions is really valuablebecause you're going to be able to do it, not only just in the key of G but in any keythat you want. This is probably one of the single most powerful concepts that you canlearn as a rhythm guitarist, so don't feel like you have to get all this down right now.Come back and watch this lesson as many times
as you need to.This first chord progression is the 1, 4, 5 chord progression. We've already kindof done this in the Rhythm Guitar QuickStart Series because we've been working on ourG, C, D chord progression, righté Just know that this is a 1, 4, 5 chord progression.When you're in a major key, the 1, 4 and 5 chords in that major key are all going tobe major chords. So, it starts off on our one chord, which since we're in the key of G is a Gmajor chord. Our G major chord, bar chord right here, sixth string root note, E shape, wouldbe 1. The 4 is going to be a C chord, so we need a C chord. Instead of jumping all around the fretboard, just move over to this A shaped
bar chord with our lowest root note here onthe fifth string, which is a C, so that's a C. That's our 4 chord. And our 5 chordis going to be a D, so we need to move up to our bar is on the fifth fret of the A stringright there. That's your 5 chord. It's a D. Play through that progression, G, C,D over and over again until you get those changes down. It may take a while for it tosound really smooth but that's fine. Try to listen to that chord progression and memorizewhat it sounds like too. The next chord progression we're going tolook at is the 1, 5, 6, 4 and this is a really popular chord progression that you're goingto hear in all types of music â€“ rock, country,
pop, all kind of stuff. And you probably noticedthat we're using three of the same chords that we did from the last lesson but the orderis a little different. We're going to start on the one again, a G using our E bar codeshape. Instead of going to the 4 this time, we're going to go right to the 5. If youremember, the 5 is a D chord, so we need a D bar chord and we use the fifth string shapebecause this is a D note right here on the fifth fret of the fifth string. So it givesus our 5. Now we need a 6 chord. What we can do for that is go up here to an E note andmake a minor bar chord. The 6 chord in a major key is always minor, so in this case we needan E minor and that's the third chord in
