This lesson is a progression using the strumming pattern we learned in the previous lesson.

We are using two E formation barre chords, and the strumming pattern will be the same in this one. The first chord is the A barre chord, also known as the (1) root chord in the key of A. The other chord is a G barre chord, also known as the flat 7 chord in the key of A.

Play a half measure using the 1 chord, then a half measure using the flat 7 chord. Then go back to the one chord for the last measure. After you get used to this, you can play it anywhere on the neck using E formation barre chords. Just make sure you keep the distance of 2 frets in between the first and second chord.

You'll hear this quite a bit in bluegrass, country, and other styles of music from time to time.
