Check this old thread for some excellent rhythm notation from Zapped and the link I posted to an excellent video.

Hi all.

I'm struggling a bit getting my 7th chord changes down, and I know why!

I'm just not practicing them enough. I'm happy with the shapes but speed is very slow (especially G7 and B7). I find it hard to get enthusiastic about 1 min chord changes and other practice exercises. I am highly motivated when using songs to practice.

I've never been a great fan of blues. Can someone recommend some songs to practice 12BB please? If it can be something less "bluesy" that would be good. Or just some other songs using 7th chords?

Thanks

Here a few I like....

Nobody knows you when you down and out
Dock of the bay
Killing me softly

All B7.

Never came across too many G7...maybe just not my key.

@DavidP

Thanks for the reply. I've been practicing Killing me softly (that B7 always catches me out). I'll have a look at the other 2.

Thanks

Hi OrangeDog.
For songs like Killing Me Softly and Dock of the Bay where the B7 follows a G, try playing the G with fingers 234. This makes the transition from G to B7 much easier as finger 2 stays in place 5th string 2nd fret as an anchor.

@sairfingers

Good idea. I'll give that a go. I often play "big G" so my little finger is getting better at behaving itself around the top E string!

Thanks
