Watch the Sonora Spring: Intro & Chorus online guitar lesson by John Jorgenson from Gypsy Jazz Journeys: Sonora Spring
So, you just heard me play the intro to my song "Sonora Spring", which is also the chorus. Let's go through the chords that you'll need to know:
It starts out very simple, there's only four chords you need to know: E minor (which I think everybody knows), open D, then C, and then B7. In the beginning, you'll notice that I'm doing whole note strums with the chords, and as the rhythm picks up, I play the chords up on the neck, using different shapes.
