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!
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.
