Continuing on with our right melody for our Blues in C!

We're going to do the exact same thing we did in Lessons 5 & 6 by playing a C major chord and an F major chord. But we are also going to add the G major chord.

For the new chord, again, use two fingers of your right hand. I suggest the middle finger on the B and the pinky on the D. But you can use any that are comfortable for you personally, with the exception of the thumb. Save the thumb for the low note of the right hand melody, the G.

In order to create all the chords we will use in our little melody for our blues song we will have to play all three chords in a specific order. You can experiment and make up your own orders, too! But for this exercise we will play the chords in this order: C, F, C, G, F, C.
