Lesson notes

Just as the title implies, in this lesson you’ll learn how to take simple chord shapes such as A minor or D major and transform them using minimal effort into some awesome sounding, and very colorful variations. Don’t let your rhythm playing become dull and stagnant; learn how to change certain notes in a chord while keeping all the others in order to create a musical idea with your chord strumming.

·      Quick recap of simplistic major and minor chord shapes

·      Examples of alternate notes that can be added or substituted into these chord shapes to add more variety and musicality to your playing

·      Real-life playing example of how to use this technique within the context of a song.
