Watch the Swing Moves 3 online guitar lesson by Joe Dalton from 100 Twang Thangs

These three string 6th chords are much easier to play than the last two examples but they are just as effective. The first chord (G, B, and E minus the fifth D = G6th) slides up to the 13th fret. The same fingering now gives us a G9th chord (D, F, and A) minus the root (G) and third (B). Knowing all of your chords is essential. The next two chords are C6th chords. I use the same idea for the next G chord. The D chord run down is D6th, D9th, D6th, and D9th with chromatics. The chords forms are similar but the function changes from tonic to dominant as you move back two frets.
