Making New Chords With Familiar Fingering

This lesson will teach you how to make 2 different chords using the same finger positions. No, I am not talking about a movable barre chord. You will learn how to take an A and without changing fingering make an Augmented chord.

F Shape Into Augmented



NOTE: All red position markers are the roots of every chord in this lesson.

Use an F shape on the 5th fret to start with your A chord....


Now move every finger down 1 string but keep the same fingering..



And presto changeo you get an Ab Augmented. Now that you get the idea.....Next.

D Shape Into Diminished



The next chord is a SLASH CHORD. Nothing to do with GNR, Velvet Revolver, or a Snakepit. It's just a chord where the root is not the lowest note played. Ok, check it out..



If you look at the 3 top strings you get a D shape forming an A chord.The lowest note on the D string is just the 3rd holding down the bass note. The name would look like this A/Db. A OVER D FLAT. I can explain more if needed. Move these notes down 1 string and you get..



F Diminished

A SHAPE BARRE CHORD INTO MAJOR 7TH


Very familiar chord D Barre chord



Shift everything up one string for a G Maj 7



If you are familiar with the CAGED system, you can move this up to the G shape and get the same results D barre in the G shape...



Shift up one string you still get G Maj 7



Minor barre shape into minor major 7


Same as the A shape above but in minor form..D minor



and..G minor Major 7th



Diminished7 Into Minor7flat5


The Diminished7 has no root or are they all roots? Every note in it can be the key signature.




This chord when shifted is...




F#m7b5. The 7th chord of the Major 7th Diatonics.

My point is to show guitarist that are just starting to get deeper into chord structure that they shouldn't freak just because you see F#m7b5. It may be familiar to you after all.

EVERY EXAMPLE IN THIS LESSON IS DONE IN A MOVABLE FORM AND CAN BE PLAYED IN ALL KEYS

It's good to know this sort of thing.

Maybe, but I feel like I gave this one the wrong name. It gives the impression that the lesson shows NEW chords not DIFFERENT chords with the same finger positions. I don't believe there is such a thing as a NEW CHORD. Just variations of the same ones played for centuries.
