Watch the Slow Playalong: Variation 2 online guitar lesson by Tierra Negra from Magic Gypsy Chords & Rhythms

Am9 – 1st position

This is a very nice Am9 chord voicing. The tone B, the 9th, and the minor 3rd, the tone C, are only a half step apart in the same octave range on corresponding strings. This half step dissonance makes the beauty of the chord. Perhaps it will take a while to get used to the wide fingering, but you will learn to love this chord the more you play it.

G6 – 2nd position

To change from Am9 to G major 6 is very comfortable. You only need to put the 3rd finger on the E-string and lift the 1st finger away from the B-string. I hear this chord as a G major 6 chord yet there is another possible interpretation of it as an E minor chord.

Fmaj7/#11 – 1st position

This chord is an F major barre chord without barre. It is relatively easy to play. Let both the B- and the E-string ring.

E-Phrygian – 1st position

This E-Phrygian chord is maybe the most well known flamenco chord of all.
