  • In today's lesson we'll take a look at a new way to create chords using the whole fretboard. In order to combine different chord shapes, we'll use a sliding technique and open strings as much as possible to create a mellow ambient kind of sound. As always with this kind of lesson, I strongly encourage you to develop these ideas and include them in your own compositions.

    Make sure to study the fingering shown in the videos. There are sometimes more than one way to play these, but you should try the recommended fingering to make things easy for you.

    As you can see, we'll use the fingers of the right hand to play arpeggios. This technique can be tricky at first, so spend time getting you right hand fingers used to playing in that matter.

    Strive for a clean technique and have fun!
