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

Folk Rock chords use the formula of D, D9, Dsus., D. - they’re “jingle-jangly” in D, good for big open rhythms in A, and can give you a tight pumped inner voicing in C.


We can also morph an A9 into the relative minor (A9/F#) with one finger for a smoky tonal switch.
