Ba rre chord ex­ten­sions

Learn 10 new shapes and get 120 new chords. How come? Thanks to the trans­for­ma­tional, trans­pos­ing barre chord sys­tem that’s all part and par­cel of play­ing the gui­tar, that’s how!

Total Guitar - - COVER FEATURE -

We’re not jok­ing ei­ther. If you learn 10 barre chords built upon one root note, then ev­ery semi­tone (one fret) step higher up (or lower down) the fret­board gives you 10 more chords in a new pitch.

Read on as we look at some new shapes (or, if this is all new to you, turn to p26 where we show you how to get started with barre chords). We’ve pro­vided an au­dio ex­am­ple of all of the chords so you can hear how they should sound.
