We play the first Song: Rock my Soul

ROCK MY SOUL - Listen Audio Clip - Video Video Clip.



 C    /  /    /      /     /  /   /    C
 Rock my soul in the bosom of Abraham, So high, you can't get over it,
 G7   /  /    /      /        /   /    G7
 Rock my soul in the bosom of Abraham  so low, you can't get under it,
 C    /  /    /      /        /   /    C
 Rock my soul in the bosom of Abraham, so wide, you can't get round
 /  G7   /  C                                    G7      C
 oh rock my soul.                      of it, oh rock my soul.

The thumb is strumming the strings downward. This song is practiced cause there are not many changes of the chords:

If you feel pain in the hands, please stop playing! After some time the finger crests of the hand which sets the chords on the fretboard become harder and crusty. That's normal and no reason for being afraid. If no cornea is growing, that is perhaps an indication of to large carelessness when doing the exercises! The following songs are meant for practicing the chord change from C on G7.

Note: Many guitar courses begin with the chords D and A instead of C and G7. D and A are surely easier to seize and make fewer demands. But the requirements grow later if the more difficult chords follow. These fall then mostly into a phase of sinking motivation, which can sometimes lead to the finish of guitar learning before the first successes are obvious. Here in this course with learning the chords the requirements in the early phase of high motivation are more highly hung and lowered in the phase of sinking motivation. Thus the success experiences so important for learning distribute themselves evenly over the duration of the whole course and restore the motivation again and again.
