Practical Tools for Everyday Playing
Happy Traum continues his hands-on exploration of basic music theory, providing essential knowledge that every guitarist needs to become a more skillful, fully-rounded player.
This lesson is packed with invaluable information. You'll learn moveable three- and four-string chord shapes that can be played anywhere, in any key, up and down the fretboard, along with the basic chord progressions that bring these shapes into practical application. By understanding the degrees of the scale and where the notes of each chord can be found, you can use them to build arrangements and improvisations for any song. In addition, you'll learn scales and chords in major and minor keys; transposing from one key to another; using harmonized scales; building chord progressions; and learning other skills based on your new understanding of how the guitar works.
As you work through this course you'll gain new insights into your guitar and how the strings, frets, scales and chords all fit together in a logical, easy-to-grasp system.
