Content and Overview

Have you learned the basics of open and moveable chord shapes on guitar, but aren't sure how or why the individual notes within a chord work so well together? Are you unsure of the ways by which you can develop this chord knowledge to unlock the mysteries of the guitar fretboard?

In this course, I'll help you obtain a better knowledge of the guitar fretboard. We'll explore how notes relate to each other when they are combined. I will also guide you to understand how you can expand your knowledge and build on what you already know.

This will assist you to focus less on the shape of an individual chord, and more on the notes that the chord is based around. We will also pay close attention to the sound of each chord. This will give you more freedom and command of your instrument - the guitar!

By the End of the Course You Will Be Able to:

  • play various chord voicings up, down, and across the guitar neck
  • have a greater knowledge of constructing triads, 7th chords, inversions, and power chords
  • play and know the voicings of various chord qualities such as major triad, minor triad, diminished triad, augmented triad, suspended triads, dominant 7, and minor 7
