Playing Over Chords: Part 2

Live Guitar Course: Use Simple 3-Note Figures to Navigate Common Chord Changes

We return to the world of open position with this exciting follow up to the original “Playing Over Chords” course. This time around we explore simple 3-note figures, and show how they can be used to navigate chord changes in open position using several of the most prolific keys. Understanding these concepts is the key to developing your ability to write songs, improvise guitar lines and discover your place in a band or jam session.
