Watch the Chord Studies: Open String Chords Vol. 1 online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Chord Studies: Open String Chords Vol. 1
Hi, this is Brad Carlton. Welcome to this Guitar Lab edition focused on open string chord applications. Each individual edition of this Guitar Lab series features 15 studies focused on a particular application of chords. I designed this series to provide you with unlimited creative options for crafting interesting and compelling rhythm guitar parts. Across the series we'll explore essential and exotic chord voicings, all purpose substitutions, creative approaches, and performance techniques. This pack of chord progressions will involve open strings along with fretted notes. That's a unique sound that is a very important tool for us guitarists. You'll learn to play in a number of different styles and move up and down the string axis, from left to right, right to left. You'll also learn how to play different approaches for different sounds. I'll break down and demonstrate the chord studies over rhythm tracks in a variety of styles using chord progressions commonly encountered in that style. You'll also get chord diagrams that will clearly give you the left hand fingerings and you'll get the jam tracks for you to work with on your own.So, get your guitar and let's make some music.
