When playing notes the following rules should be observed;
1. Use the fingertips, directly behind frets.
2. Hold Strings firmly against the fretboard.
3. Use the correct fingering (i.e. 1st finger = 1st fret, 2nd finger = 2nd
fret, 3rd finger = 3rd fret, etc.)
4. Fret hand should remain close to the strings at all times (i.e. When an
open string is played, your fingers must remain in close proximity.)

EXAMPLE #4

The following uses root notes throughout.

Am G F E
|——2—2—2—2——|——0—0—0—0——|———————————|———————————|
|———————————|———————————|——3—3—3—3——|——2—2—2—2——|>
|———————————|———————————|———————————|———————————|>
|———————————|———————————|———————————|———————————|
1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4

EXAMPLE #5

Example five uses the same chord progression, but with different bass notes.
This is the first example so far, that uses notes other than root notes.

Am G F E
|——2—2———2——|——0—0—2—0——|———————————|————————0——|
|——————2————|———————————|——3—3—0—3——|——2—2—3————|>
|———————————|———————————|———————————|———————————|>
|———————————|———————————|———————————|———————————|
1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4

Remember that the progression finishes on an A Minor (Am) Chord, so you will
finish on an A note (root note of the A Minor chord).

Guitar Chords
Am = X02210
G = 320003
F = 133211
E = 022100
