A new Chord of the Day courtesy of @emanuelhedberg in one of his recent posts. He has a great progression in F major and this was the first chord. A nice way to add a little colour to the mini-barre shape (with the optional thumb over the top). Entirely moveable if you reference the note on string 6(E). You can get more on this and the progression on my IGTV 👍🏻👊🏻
@drippy_2x_29 arranged this piece himself . this video brings tears to my eyes , it’s crazy how talented this man is 🤯 i’m so grateful for the gift of music & what it has brought me through . (could never find this full video, thank you @everybodylovesraven_ !)
Following on from the previous Chord of the Day; how we can get more from our chords with a little theory. The previous chord was a major 7th grip. If we flatten the major 7th we get the chord tones for a dominant 7th (R-3-5-b7). Perfect for all you blues players 👍🏻👏🏻
CAGED Clarity G-Shape (6/9): From the major arpeggio we can easily visualise and play three different triad shapes. Here is the second of those. This is a first inversion major triad. A first inversion as the 3rd of the chord is the lowest note played.
CAGED Clarity G-Shape (5/9): From the major arpeggio we can easily visualise and play three different triad shapes. Here is the first. This is a root position major triad. Maybe not used so much in rhythm playing, but it’s important to know it’s there.
Who had this one in the chord bank already? Perhaps a lesser known grip for the major 7th chord, this finds the Root note on string 3(G) or a fret above the fretted note on string 1(E). This is what I consider as the maj7 grip in the the G-shape (a reference to our ongoing CAGED clarity series).
How about this one? A new Chord of the Day™️ courtesy of Mr James Bay for you. ‘Pink Lemonade’ came on Spotify today and I liked those chords, so transcribed it, shared it on IGTV, and here you are! A C-shape (CAGED FTW) Emaj7 chord.
See what I did there? Yesterday’s Chord of the Day, but played a different way. Always remember that the same notes can be found on different strings, which might help chord progressions or inspire you in a different way
What do you think of this one? Another Chord of The Day™️. This one came courtesy of @mateusasato. I was transcribing one of his videos on his YouTube channel named ‘Whatever London Brings’ and this one popped out. He is such an incredible player. There’s so much to learn from even a minute-long video of his playing. Check him out if you haven’t done so already, and I’m sure you’ll be adding him to your inspirations list. I know I am!
