EBS Lesson One  Building a rock groove (using quarter notes)

Introducing the note of ‘G’

Playing an G on the E string at the 3rd Fret

Playing a G on the E string, at the 3rd fret.

We are going to just look at two notes in this lesson. The second note to learn is called ‘G’.

To play the G note you need to fret the note by using your left hand, placing your first (index) finger on the E string at the third fret. Look at the picture below.

Again, we have placed a red dot on our picture.

You play the E string again with your right hand as we did when we played the A using the fourth string. Again watch the video clip and then play along once you are happy you know what you are doing.

Play the G bass note on each of the four quarter notes in the bar, in the same way we have done with our A notes.
