Watch the Common Chords online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Country Guitar 4: Rhythm Approaches

Common Chords - Rhythm Concept 1 is a video guitar lesson presented by Jason Loughlin and is sourced from Focus On: Western Swing.


Here we'll learn common chord qualities that you'll come across in western swing. Let's take a look at Maj 6th, Dom 7th, Min 7th, Aug the and Diminished chords. I'll show you two shapes for each. One with a root on the 6th string and one with a root on the 5th string. This will help us use good voice leading in our comping and not have to jump around the neck.
