It was kinda hard cuz usually I just play and not really give much thought on what fingers I use.  For this one I just played a chord naturally, then looked at what fingers I used.  I really do hope everybody is finding this helpful.  I sure wish someone had a post like this when I was a beginner.

Like I said at the beginning, these are the fingerings that I use personally. If u can use them, great.  If you come up with your own, that's great too.  Any questions feel free to ask me.


What's the best way to memorize the different keys: It's a lot & it gets discouraging - Is their a fun way & exciting way to learn each one by putting it to use with a gopel song that consist of each key, but not hard song starting off - just something to help us, beginners get familar with each key. Thanks a lot for the post of keys. Be Blessed

The best way to get familiar with these is to go through each one and practice it until it becomes second nature.  Once you get familiar with it, you will notice that your fingers will automatically start moving where they need to go.  

Another way is to practice those progressions in every key using these fingerings.  So, just put this post together along with the posts I did on basic and more advanced progressions and you should see a difference in a short period of time.

Let me start by saying hello to everyone.  I'm new to the forum and look forward to learning how to improve my playing.  I can see that this forum is annointed. This type of effort and dedication requires much patience and stregnth.  I appreciate all of you.
