Open Chord Drills A7-D7
Don’t strum the sixth string on either one of these chords.
This open chord drill is for the A seven and D seven chord. Begin this exercise by strumming an A seven chord and letting it ring for a whole note. Switch to the D seven chord and let that ring for a whole note.
The exercise continues by moving back to the A seven chord for a half note, and then the D seven chord for a half note. The last measure of this exercise is one quarter note on each chord back and fourth.
One helpful way to switch between these two chords is to move your second and third finger first to the D seven chord, then move your first finger to the first fret on the second string. With time you can turn that into one movement. .
