Welcome to the fifth in the series of Chord Changing Rhythms with G, Cadd9, Dsus4, G/F#, and Em7 chords for Guitar and Ukulele.

These 5 chords are heavily used in pop and alternative music and are a fundamental set of chords to learn and be comfortable playing together in various sequences and with different strumming rhythms. They are also often used in different Capo positions on the Guitar.

In Exercise Sheet 5, we re use only 3 chords from the previous exercises,G, Cadd9, and Dsus4. The exercises are getting harder though! There is a very quick rest after beat 3 on each bar, for only a quarter of a beat (16th note), and followed by 3 quick up picks with a 16th note speed, which then leads into a quick chord change to go into the next bar. The chord choices and style of playing was inspired by the song "We are never getting back together" by Taylor Swift. That song would be great to learn on the side of this series of chord changing with rhythm. The only other chord that it uses is Em. The picking is more complex than this, and the rhythm is different, but the chords are similar (in a different order).

The rhythm is the same in every bar. Beginners might want to listen to the audio to pick up the rhythm rather than trying to read this one.
