Here's a little squib, a little bit
one of my favorite little harmonic tricks
for getting some color into
into the one chord again we're talking
we've talked about [INAUDIBLE] but.
One of just things I like to do is kind of
substitute a five
minor chord inside a one chord.
So if somebody is playing like a G chord,
a G card, a G chord and bluegrass.
I'm gonna be playing a five minor chord,
spelling that up.
So, maestro, if you could give, give us a
little bit of that nice G, just,
nice G, I'll show you what I mean.
I'll talk a little bit and play a little
bit, so it's like one, two three, and.
So, instead of G.
I'm gonna be playing, I'm gonna imagine
myself playing in D minor,
so that's very colorful.
Against the one chord,
you get that five minor
if we went into something like Nine Pound
One, two, three.
One more time.
One more time.
