10/7 Class Summary


Today we talked about what a measure is, and we practiced our chord transitions in the key of D.


What is a measure?

  • A measure is a segment of time that contains a certain number of beats (usually four). In written music, it looks like a box with notes written in it. Dividing a song into measures allows us to break up the music into manageable chunks to learn. When we do a count-in at the beginning of a song, we typically count one measure. Ex. “1-2-3-4”

Practice Goals:

  • Work on switching between chords in the key of D. For example- switching between D and G, or D and A, or A and G. Our goal is to be able to transition smoothly from chord to chord while maintaining our Boom-Chuck with an Alternating Bass.
