  1. Practice transitioning between the chords G major and D major. Start slowly and gradually increase your speed. Aim for smooth and accurate chord changes.
  2. Strum a basic open E major chord using downstrokes. Then, try strumming the same chord using upstrokes only. Focus on maintaining a steady rhythm and consistent strumming pattern.
  3. Experiment with muting techniques while strumming an open C major chord. Try palm muting, where you lightly rest the palm of your strumming hand on the strings near the bridge. Notice how it changes the sound and dynamics of your strumming.
  4. Create your own drum pattern using simple rhythms such as quarter notes and eighth notes. Practice strumming a G major chord while following your self-created drum pattern.
  5. Improve your guitar strumming accuracy by strumming a basic open D major chord using alternate picking. Alternate picking involves using a downstroke followed by an upstroke repeatedly. Focus on keeping a consistent tempo and hitting each string cleanly.
  6. Bend the third string (G string) at the 7th fret to raise the pitch. Start with a half-step bend and gradually increase it to a whole-step bend. Pay attention to the amount of pressure you apply and the pitch changes produced.
  7. Strum a simple progression, such as G - C - D, using different strumming patterns. Experiment with patterns like down-up-down-up and down-down-up-down to add variety to your playing.
  8. Practice fretting clean and clear notes by playing a chromatic scale starting from the open low E string (6th string) up to the 4th fret. Use one finger per fret and pay attention to your finger placement and pressure.
  9. Work on your finger dexterity and speed by practicing a four-note chromatic exercise. Start on the 6th string, 1st fret, and ascend chromatically using your first four fingers (index, middle, ring, and pinky). Then, descend back down to the 1st fret using the same fingers.
  10. Create your own chord progression using open chords (such as C, G, and D). Strum the progression and focus on the flow between the chords. Experiment with different rhythms and strumming patterns to make your progression sound unique.
