    Hi guys! Here's an awesome beginner-friendly lesson from Matt Dahlberg on figuring out how to determine the best fingering to use when switching from chord to chord. Here's an example of what this lesson will help with:

    We are usually taught to play the C chord (0003) with the ring finger; but depending on the context of the music, this isn’t always the most efficient fingering to use. Sometimes when we transition from one chord to the next, it may make more sense to use the middle finger to fret this chord. But how and when do we know to use the middle or the ring finger? That’s what we’ll be answering in this lesson.
