EXAMPLE 7 Buddy holly style
AExample seven uses the I, VIm, IV, V chord progression (A-F#m-D-E) which was very popular in the 50s as a rock‘n’roll canvass. The rake stroke on beat two of each bar may take a little practice to perfect. This is simply a slightly
DEslower strum that spreads the notes out. You may need to experiment with how fast or slow the pick is swept across the strings to get the desired effect. How many 50s songs can you think of that used these chords?
