Major to Minor Crosspicking Workout

Lesson description: This warm-up was inspired by my study of Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings. It's basically a reminder to spend some time with our open position chords, and make sure that we've got little fills on the ready for all those simple structures that we thought we're too good for. :-)

What I've done here is made a little Do Re Mi melody for each chord, and used crosspicking to create drones for each. It's easy enough on a G or C, but as you'll see it becomes trickier as you move to D, Em, Am, and B7.

Remember, slow and steady wins the race, and good luck!
