Chord Changes: G Em Bm C - What gives a fairly simple pattern such an interesting and pretty sound is to group the notes into 3, 3, 2 instead of regular 4, 4. This puts an accent on the offbeat in the middle of the measure. We’ll also find some pretty ways to alter the chords. Sometime I’ll keep part of the previous chord down and move to the bass note or one of the voices of the next chord. This works beautifully with the open Bm voicing, sliding into the C in the bass.
