Guitar Chord Theory

David Southwick's

Guitar ‘Scales’ Section Created

Play Lead Guitar

I have just created a new section for guitar ‘Scales‘. I will cover some scales and some tips and tricks I find helpful for lead improv. Let me know any feedback you have on this section, and any questions you may want answered.

Thanks!

New Barre Chord Theory Printout

This past summer I put together a two page handout for a workshop on Intro to Barre Chord Theory. This printout shows the pattern for the E major, E minor, A major and A minor barre chord shapes. It also provides a chart listing what chord you are playing in any of the first 12 frets, depending on the barre chord shape you are using. Page 2 shows how to group these barre chord shapes together in keys or chord families. This enables a guitarist to see how the major and minor chords in every key relate together.

Here is the Barre Chord Theory Printout.
