AN INTRODUCTION TO USING CHORD SYNONYMS FOR GUITAR
This is a really powerful lesson and it’s all about chord synonyms! Why would that be? Well, currently you have learned minor seven, dominant seven and major seventh chords. The great thing about this lesson is that you will be learning about a new chord, but you don’t need to learn any new shapes. How can this be? Well this is to do with the power of synonyms. You will be learning more synonyms later in the course, but to ease you in this one is quite simple. It might help at this stage though to look up the dictionary definition of what a synonym is.
This is from Wikipedia: “A synonym is a word or phrase that means exactly or nearly the same as another word or phrase in the same language.”
What we will be doing in this lesson is using chord forms that we already know, and then regarding them differently. What this means is that you think of them in a different harmonic context. The chord that we will be studiying is the minor seventh chord. We will change how we think of this chord and will regard it as a major sixth. How can we do this? Well the best thing to do is to watch the video. All your questions will hopefully be answered by doing this. If they are not, feel free to send a question to the course lecturer Ged Brockie.
