OPEN STRINGS AND HIGH FRETS

Total Guitar - - COVER FEATURE -

These chords com­bine open strings with fret­ted notes played higher up the fret­board. The nat­u­ral res­o­nance of the open strings con­trasts the brit­tle sound of the higher notes, which can de­cay quickly on an acous­tic gui­tar. Again, the chord names can be in­tim­i­dat­ing, but these are all quite easy to fret and sound great whether you’re pick­ing or strum­ming, so get stuck in. Ex­per­i­ment and try out your own ad­just­ments to these shapes.
