About This Lesson

I have titled this course "Open String Universe" because the realm of information which combines open strings with fretted notes is astronomical.

As guitarists we all utilize moveable shapes which allow us to access tonal snapshots in any key. If we include moveable formations with static open strings the harmonic and melodic implications change with each fret shift.

In these 24 lessons we will take basic E or Em open string chord forms and move them up the neck. The first and second strings will remain open and therefore each position up the neck will present a different harmony.

My goal is to give you a comprehensive analysis of each chord voicing and the scales (modes) that are applicable to each sonority.
