Guitar Basics, Using 7th Chords.
Okay, I've put together
a chord sequence for you.
Let me show you the chords first
using some of these major 7th chords,
minor 7th chords, 7th chords,
and minor 7th flat 5 chords.
So the first chord will be.
E flat major 7.
Second one will be D minor 7.
Next one will be C minor 7,
and then the bass we'll play.
We'll add the seventh note
in the bass like this.
'Cause just as with these trials,
you can put any of the notes
within this arpeggio.
Arpeggio is 1, 3, 5, 7.
And it could be one, minor 3rd,
5th, minor 7th for the minor chord.
It can be 1 3rd 5th, and the 7th,
the 7th chord, and one minor 3rd flat 5,
minor 7 for minor 7 for that 5 chord.
So here.
And sometimes you can use, here I am
using the 7th note, B flat in the bass.
'Cause I'm moving on to the next chord,
A minor 7 flat 5.
C minor, putting B flat in the bass
with this fourth finger.
A minor 7 flat 5.
A flat, major 7.
G minor 7.
Here's a chromatic thing.
It's, you don't have to use your thumb.
You can use this finger.
So from G minor 7.
One, two, three, four.
One and two and three and four.
And one.
And so I do a chromatic chord in between.
It's G flat, minor 7, before I go to F
minor 7, if you wanna play it up here.
And then, last chord.
It's the 7 sus.
It's like a A flat triad, over B flat
So it's a root.
It's a 7th.
It's the 9th.
It's here I have
the 4th, going into the 3rd.
Like this suspesh, suspension once again.
And instead of the 9th,
if you want to have,
want to have the 3rd,
you know you can have, do it like this.
But it's kind of nice with this sus 4,
kind of, 9.
9 sus 4 kind of flavor,
going into the B flat 9
One and two and three and four.
And one and two and three and four and.
Then back to E flat major.
E flat major 7.
D minor 7.
C minor 7.
The 7th note with the B flat in the bass.
Leading to A minor 7 flat 5 into A flat
major 7.
G minor 7.
G flat minor 7.
F minor 7.
This 9 sus 4 chord into 9.
E5 9 to E5 major 7.
You can add your right hand like this.
Playing the chorded notes.
This is a nice little progression
isn't it?
I just came up with it, I don't know how.
