hey everyone
progress is going well
thanks so much for the help thusfar
my instructional video thing said, that to help eaze the transition between chords liek A, D, and G i should/can hit the open string up in between switching chords
and it sounds "fine" when transitioning fast

do u guys recommedn this?
i feel like its something that gets dropped after lots of practice
what is your guys take on it?

you shouldnt be doing it by accident. Like anything, if you mean to do it, and it sounds good, then keep doing what youre doing...it adds character to your songs, or covesr...but if youre doing it cause you can't switch fast enough and youre kind of half assing it, then by all means learn to do it proper, then add your quirks later.

Sounds like rubbish to me - depending on what key you're in it could sound ok, but at other times it won't. It's just over complicating the issue really, effectively it's makling you play 3 chords instead of 3 - when you're starting you're picking hand is a bit clunky too and it's hard enough to play the chords you want without attempting to stick an extra one in, albeit momentary.

I wouldn't bother, it won't actually make things any easier to play, just more difficult.

Sounds like you're just looking to excuse a lazy technique. If the open note sounds good, then it can add to the song but you should definately not do this every time you change chord.

I put yes, but i do it for a sound. If i dont want the sound, then i dont do it.
If you want to jam in/around Mooresville NC message me.

hmm
so i guess learn it as a technique if i want the sound?
but not if i wnat to just transition...
i guess that makes sense
thanks everyone
