Watch the Color Chords online guitar lesson by Denny Sarokin from Songwriter's Guide to Great Guitar

This segment is a bit of ear candy, helping you to identify the sounds and transitional qualities of the major chord groups: maj - maj.7 -flat 7th - maj.6 - aug.

We can mix, match, and break the chain to help identify chord changes by ear. For example, you’ll find a min. - maj./min. - min.7 - min.6 changes in the Beatles, “Michelle”, “Something”, and their early cover of, “A Taste Of Honey”.

Next step is experimenting to come up with your own new melodies, licks, and chord progressions.
