Example One:
In this example we are playing a measure of G and a measure of C. Play this over and over again until the chord change can be performed without hesitating.
Example Two:
This is basically the same as the first example except that we are changing from G to D7.
Example Three:
Changing from a C to an F chord can be tricky because making a full F chord requires using your little finger. This one will require dedicated practice to make the change smoothly.
Example Four:
In this example we are playing half-measures. Measure one goes from G to C. Measure two switches from G to D7.
