What to practice: Listen to Thunder Roll and try to figure out bass notes and even the chords. Secondly, name all the triads in the C major scale and if you have time the F major. Lastly, find every C, F, and Bb note on the fretboard.

How to practice it most effectively: Listening to the Thunder Roll a lot can be helpful and really try to zone in on the bass since that is the most important indictor of the chord. You totally have the triads down but maybe practice with a metronome to get consistency with rhythm.
