What do you think of this one? Another COTD for y’all that was lifted (or at least inspired by) my jazz transcription today. This chord grip is missing the major 3rd for a full maj9 chord but sometimes we just don’t have enough strings and/or fingers. I love to arpeggiate through these kind of chords for a improv backing loop or just to get some inspiration and see what other chords will work with it by changing bass notes or intervals within the chord.

A new #COTD for you taken from my newest song lesson. This is the F#m7 (b5) (or F# half diminished) chord, used brilliantly in the The Beatles’ ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’. Look out for a bonus video coming later on how I like to think upon and learn these chord shapes by a better understanding of the intervals contained therein 💪🏻👊🏻🙏🏻
New COTD taken from my newest video lesson. I think upon this one as the power chord sus2 as it comes from the extended power chord grip with the octave Root note on string 4(D). Being a sus chord this can replace any major or minor chord as there is no 3rd 💪🏻👍🏻
This week’s lesson takes inspiration from the music of The Police and the technique of their guitarist, Andy Summers. I will show you how to embellish chord progressions by adding in the major 2nd. Doing so to a power chord creates a spread voicing (theoretically and literally for the fretting hand) of a sus2 chord. If we add the major 2nd to a major or minor triad we have an add9 chord. COTDs on their way, but go and check out the video lesson now over on my YouTube channel.
