Watch the Common Chord Voicings online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from Country Guitar Survival Guide: Rhythm
I'll show you all the open chord otherwise known as cowboy chords and then we'll learn movable versions. These moveable version of the chords are what make up the CAGED system. We will leaning on this heavily to help visualize chords, chord tones and rhythmic patterns. This is a great shorthand approach to seeing arpeggio notes. We will also learn some jazz chord shapes so we can play country swing, countrpolitan and cowboy tunes. I'll show you maj 6th, dom 7th and min 7th chords. For each chord we'll learn a voicing off of both the 6th and 5th string. This will help our progression to have good voice leading and keep you from having to jump all over the neck.
