Open Chord Drills E7-C7
This open chord drill is for the E7 and C7 chord. Begin this exercise by strumming an E7 chord and letting it ring for a whole note. Switch to the C7 chord and let that ring for a whole note.
The exercise continues by moving back to the E7 chord for a half note, and then the C7 chord for a half note. The last measure of this exercise is one quarter note on each chord back and fourth.
A helpful way to switch from the E7 chord to the C7 chord is to move your third finger to the third fret on the fifth string. Then build a basic C chord from there, once you get there add your fourth finger to the third fret of the thirds string. The C7 chord is really just a C chord with the fourth finger added.
