Okay, we're back here with
major scales around cord shapes.
We've just done D, now we're gonna do C.
And I'm gonna jump right in here and do C.
I've already told you enough about
visualizing, I think you get that, and
we're just gonna move on here.
We're gonna do C, I've done C open
in the beginning curriculum so
[SOUND] you should have that down.
We're gonna move into the second
position here, the bar chord.
[SOUND] We'll start on G,
with the middle finger,
[SOUND] and we'll work down here.
So that's C,
we'll do it one
more time.
Okay, now we're gonna
move up to this position,
the A shape, or as some people
call it, the G shape.
If you look at it like that,
which again, I'm gonna tell you,
I don't, but,
[SOUND] that's one way to look at it.
So I'm looking at it as the one
over three, the Hendrix shape, or
the full A shape.
So with that being said,
we'll start on the pinky on the E string,
C, and we'll go through this.
that will
go to the C
bar chord.
Starting on
the second finger,
the partial,
So that's right there.
And then your C shape,
[SOUND] which back is up to square one.
So that's
your C shapes.
And that concludes major scales
around the chord shapes.
Learn those the best you can, and you'll
start to see how they start connecting.
It'll help you visualize the chord shapes,
then we'll move onto some
other stuff here, thanks.
