Topic: Need suggestion for how to play a chord progression
I'm learning to play a song which has a three-chord progression in it that I can't find a suitable way to finger.
It's a run in A with an ascending bass line:
The changes have to be quick (it's the "4-2-3" in a song in 3/4 time), so I'm trying to minimize movement. Would really like to NOT have to mute the hgh E string because I need that note for tonality.
Late add: Here's what I'm doing right now:
A = open A chord using fingers 2-4 (which is the normal way I play an A).
A/B = keeping fingers 2-4 in place, drop index onto the A string on fret 2.
A/C# = CHEAT. Ring finger on A string fret 4, and index on B string fret 2. Mute the low E and D strings. The problem: This is actually a A7/C#. It works, but I'd prefer to have the full A.
How would you finger each chord in this case?
