Minor ronroco chords

We continue the chords lesson with minor chords. Knowing these chords will build a good foundation for playing a wide range of songs.  Play the minor chords, individually, then practice playing the following sequence of chords - A, B, C, D, E, F, G. 

As a reminder from the first lesson on major chords, the ronroco is tuned three steps down from a charango. This means you can use any charango chord bible to play a ronroco. Just use the following table as a guide. So for instance an F chord on a charango corresponds to a C chord on the ronroco, etc. Charango (English) F G A B C D E Charango (Spanish) Fa Sol The Yes Oj Re Mi Ronroco  (Spanish) Oj Re Mi Fa Sol The Yes Ronroco (English) C D E F G A B Practice by playing major then minor chords.
