Chords that Change Your World...

Knowing when to change your workout so that it includes new chords (that you 'do not know'), can be largely based upon the styles of music that you enjoy learning. Folk, Jazz, Country and Pop guitar players will often know more chords than Blues, Rock or Metal players. If this sounds like you - then it's probably time for a change...

Adding a larger array of chords to your practice routine is one of the most important things that you can do to get more harmonic variety when it comes to your musical training.

Changing from playing in just one music style is another way, (a way that too often is ignored - leaving you to sacrifice your ability to build the necessary foundation required for establishing a solid musical base on the instrument).

Not adding change into your guitar playing and into your practice sessions won't provide you with enough stimulus for your fingerboard knowledge to be able to expand.

In this video, I’m going to help you to realize that it is time to change your chord workout to include major and minor triad studies.


In this session we're going to talk about change. And, change specifically with how you’re thinking about chords.

For most guitar players “chord knowledge” can be very limited and often only functional at the head-stock area.

Open and first position chords are some of the only patterns that a lot of guitarists will know. But, for other guitar players, chord knowledge can be far worse.

In fact, a lot of rock and metal guitar players will have very limited chord knowledge, (because so much of those styles are based upon riffs, rather than chord pattern strumming).

So, in this lesson we’re going to explore learning how to understand one of the best ways that major and minor triad chords can operate all around the neck, in easy to play shapes.

These shapes are going to be great to learn because they can cover a lot of ground no matter what style of music you like to play...

So, let me perform a demonstration for you right now, to show you exactly how these triad chord shapes can be applied into a practice routine…

Chord Exercise Demonstration:

Now that you have an understanding for how this exercise functions as a routine, the next thing to do, is to break it all down in stages and learn more about it in a step by step approach.

I want you to learn all of the notes and also start getting a better grasp of the way these shapes can be applied. So, let’s get organized on the how to study this entire routine right now…

These triads are based within "E" Major. Learn the shapes and practice playing them as a sequence smoothly in time...

These triads are based within "E" Minor. Learn the shapes and practice playing them as a sequence smoothly in time...

If you spend the time studying this triad chord exercise, it will help you on many different levels.

First of all, these triad chord patterns are found within larger movable chords. Plus, this chord pattern drill can be placed onto other regions (off of other root notes), quite easily.

Further, once you work out where the root notes are, and you become familiar with how these chords relate to their larger chord pattern counter-parts, you’ll find yourself reaching a whole new playing level for how to use these popular triad chords on guitar.
