Watch the Dominant 13th online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from 1-2-3 Rockabilly Guitar
In this segment we will learn a G Dom13 chord shape. We'll start by barring 1st finger over all the strings of the third fret. Next we will take our 3rd finger and place it on the fifth fret of the A string, your 2nd finger goes on the fourth fret of the G string and finally put your 4th finger on the fifth fret of the B string. This is a movable chord shape. In other words it can be played anywhere on the guitar neck. The chord gets its name from the root of the chord which can be found on either the high or low E string. If you wanted to make this an A Dom13 chord you would simply find an A note on the low E string and build this shape.
