BE­YOND BA­SIC CHORDS

Get some new shapes sussed as TG looks at a mix­ture of cool chords

Total Guitar - - 30 LESSONS -

You prob­a­bly al­ready know more than a few ma­jor and mi­nor chords – these are made of three notes: the first, third and fifth notes of a scale. Sure, most gui­tar chords re­peat and re-or­der cer­tain notes. For ex­am­ple, an open D chord uses D (the root note), A (the 5th), an­other D and F# (the 3rd), but it’s still a D. Here we’re adding some ex­tra notes to ba­sic ma­jor and mi­nor chords to cre­ate more in­ter­est­ing sounds. These shapes are com­mon­place but why not ex­per­i­ment by adding some new notes to chords you al­ready know?
