Lesson Two – Playing Chords All Over The Neck

This is a partial transcription of the text found within the video above. Welcome to this second lesson of drop two voicings series of lessons. We are going to be looking at how to play, as the question was posed, are you scratching your head when you have a one chord for a prolonged period of time? What do you do? Well, if you watched the last lesson you will know that we have taken these chords up the neck. What I really wanted to achieve in this lesson was giving you the ability to learn these chord shapes in many different keys. So, how do we do that? Well, for those that have the book Drop Two Voicings Uncovered. Hopefully you do have the book and if you don’t have the book you’ll consider buying it, because within it there is a whole bunch of backing tracks. There is about twenty one backing tracks and we are going to use one of these backing tracks in this lesson on guitar chords across the neck.

We are only going to study the minor seventh in this lesson, but obviously, the backing tracks and the book covers both major sevenths and dominant sevenths as well, so there is quite a bit of work in there. Now we are going to use something called symmetrical harmony. You may have heard this talked about if you know about chords, specifically diminished chords. On the screen right now you can see the cycle of fifths. That’s all the notes that there are in the musical world and you’ll see that it’s now showing you the four points that we are going to be looking at. We are going to be playing G, then B flat, C sharp then E. So these intervals are all what we call a minor third apart. So what we are going to do is use these four root notes and play minor seventh chords from them. This short extract is taken from the video on guitar chords. Make sure to watch the video and download the resources to get the most from this lesson.
