> IS THAT YOUR MAMA?

Nope didn't think so either. We all know parents don't get this.

I can show you how to be the virtuoso your folks could only dream about, but I first need your help:

* Pm me and I will show you where to start. I am online every day and I will help you out directly!

* Join my mentoring program. I will customize your learning experience in a way you haven't experienced before. We will have regular contact so that you can remain inspired every day and eventually reach a new level.

* Join my next video chat! GMC startpage holds a video chat schedule. We always cover a lot of ground and have fun. Remember that you don't need any previous knowledge, and you can be passive in the chat.

* Jam with me - you will find active collabs here.

* Post a topic on this board, guitar related or not - doesn't matter! You will find that chatting with instructors boosts your motivation to practice.

* You haven't missed my latest video lessons, have you?

* Oh and did you know that to become a killer guitarist you just need to focus on one thing? Everything
else is secondary. Pm me and I will explain.

Howdy Davenport!

This is your personal thread which we will use to work in together.

I will begin by inviting you at this evening's video chat session which deals with chord voicings - It would be great if you would make it man smile.gif

Otherwise, tell me please, what sort of gear are you using - can you downtune to drop D/ C / A etc?

Cosmin

D= DADGBE
C= CGCFAD
A= AEADGBE

Aye! Very correct! First things first smile.gif Since we are dealing with voicings in the video chat sessions, I will take the opportunity to direct you towards the following materials:

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...st&p=596286

These are a few charts which I have designed, dealing with chord voicings smile.gif

The system is simple:

1) For each chord type you need to follow the root note which is encircled wink.gif
2) All the positions can be applied to ANY root note and each one has a different note in the bass
3) Try to get them in your system and when I get back I will tell you about a mechanism to deduce them all by moving notes around starting in a given position

What say you my talented friend?

Cosmin

Good question mate smile.gif

In these charts you will notice that all the voicings have their root notes belonging to the A, D and G strings. I haven't included any of the ones having their roots on the low E string smile.gif

Those are the ones which you can use when dealing with dropped tunings - I will make up a chart and post it in the same thread where you found the other ones wink.gif I never took the time to think which ones are the most useful but usually when dealing with dropped tunings, I like to use 9th chords and really nice versions of the major and minor chords, while using the lowest string de-tuned.

In the mean time - have you managed to get acquainted with the ones I have provided already?

Cosmin

Not all just yet working through some chord progressions now and using the inversions to make the least amount of movement from one chord to the next as an excercise to get more familiar with each . These inversions are also really helpful with my soloing so also working with that thanks.

Great to hear this man smile.gif A good example of how little you can move on the fretboard is trying to play the CM7 Am7 FM7 G7 progression, using the CM7 having its root note on the D string and the Am7 having its b3rd in the bass (on the D string), the FM7 having its 5th in the bass (on the D string) and the G7 having its 5th in the bass...guess what, also on the D string biggrin.gif

You literally move 2 frets to go from FM7 to G7 otherwise all the chords are using C in the bass, the note having multiple functions.
