And here's the progression used in this lesson vid above. The basic group chords above are rearranged to suit:
D C#mb7 Bm A G F#m Em D
Chord Number: 17654321
Soundwise or this piece I used a Chorus effect from a Zoom GFX-707 and a Boss DD3 Delay. You can use any pickup on your guitar for this one and see which one you like best. I used the Neck/Middle combo and recorded it into the desk with a SansAmp D.I. box.
I kept noticing that this progression reminded me of a Randy Rhoads/Ozzy tune but I couldn't think which one and it was annoying me :). Then it eventually came to me that it was the song 'Goodbye to Romance' from his excellent first album after the Sabs, 'Blizzard of Ozz'. This song has a similar descending chord/bass vibe going on and a Chorus effect is used too. I was happy to solve the mystery lol.
Very popular guitar key with useful and often used simple to add D embellishments such as and D sus2 (used in the outro) and Sus4 (covered later).
Two barre chords (finger 1 replaces the nut and covers a few strings at once) are used in this D group example (the F#m + Bm), and these can sometimes cause problems for beginners. But the key to getting these barres under your fingers is to constantly practise playing them on a daily basis. After a few days or weeks you will manage them no problem and wonder how you ever did without them :). They do take a bit of work and that is pretty much the norm for most players at the early stages.
Btw these chords CAN be played without a barre, but you lose the low bass note that way. It's well worth your while to learn the barre chord technique if you don't already.
