Here's a little Sitting on Top of the
World that we have a backing track
And I'm gonna play a little bit, play the
melody first, and
then I'll do some improvisation for you.
Just to give you an idea.
And then this is one that I want you to
The only request I'll make though, of
is that you actually have the blues before
sending in this video.
And you know, I will know whether it's
true or not.
Let's have that little guitar.
Now, for those of you who want a little
extra spice in this tune, I'm gonna show

You guys know diminished chord yet?
It's very simple.
It's that sound.
It's the I'll save you sweet Nell.

It's 3rd fret, 2nd fret, 4th fret.
B flat E and C sharp.

6, 5, 7, it's the same chord.

10, and it's the same chord.
You can even go up to 12, 11, 13.
So we've all heard that sound.
So I'm gonna work this into Sitting on Top
of the World.
It goes right after the 4 chord.
That's where she appears.
your backing track with this, but that's a
variation you can do.
That's a beautiful thing about diminished

You got this one.
And it repeats, right, every 3rd fret.
And then you got the next one, a half step
Then you got the next one.
And then, guess what?
You're back at the one you started with.
So, very simple chord, there's only three.
I used that shape.
If you wanna get the 4th string in, you
can add the high G to that chord.
It looks like a star shape, but
oftentimes I just pay it with the bottom 3
