Guitar Basics, Applying Major and
Minor Chord Shapes.
Those chords I just taught you,
they're in hundred of thousands of songs.
So just by knowing, just actually in this
key, just playing these chords are like.
[SOUND] G, C, D, E minor, A minor.
This will make you able to play a lot,
a lot of songs.
So buy a chord book and
look for your favorite song.
And maybe you will already
be able to play it.
Or if it, it's in a different key,
you have to continue to watch these
lessons and expand your vocabulary.
But you can send me a video when
you play your favorite song
using some of these chord shapes.
You can sing if you like too.
You can just play it and I will look and
see that your rhythm is good and
that you are using the correct and
nice sounding voices.
Here's a little backing track for you.
This backing track [SOUND]
will use these chords.
[SOUND] This one chord I, on an E minor.
I have a little [SOUND] on the E minor,
I put the D in the base
on one chord just to make
a nice chromatic line and D is the 7th.
[SOUND] The 7th note of E, E minor.
this will be an [SOUND] E minor 7th.
The voicing will be like this.
you can even do it like this
just with open strings.
[SOUND] 'Cause I go from this chord.
Into C
So let's hear it.
G, D with F sharp in the bass, E minor.
E minor with D in the bass, C.
G with D in the bass, A minor, D.
changing the rhythm in my
right hand to play a bit more.
