just a game i thought we could play, please make sure it is a chord you can play, on guitar :p not piano.

i have this
F sus2 b5 /B
E-X
B-8
G-10
D-13
A-10
E-7
it pretty much killed my hand the first time i tried it, the D# on the B string and the B on the low E have to be barred at an angled, its messed, i got it from a local winnipeger's video.

Yeah, i tried, and there is just no chance i will be able to convince my fingers to make that shape.

I just always wind up muting the g and b strings with my pinky!

I didn't think I could do it but I did after half a minute of trying.
I've been trying out those 'crooked' barres once before, too. I think that comes in handy when you just don't have anymore fingers left.

whats the biggest stretch you guys can do? mine is with my index finger on the E on the B string (fret 5) and the pinky on the 13 on the high E string (F). That would be interesting to hear ^^

i could just play the chord. But try doing it in a quick jazzy chord progression ^^

Ah right, I get it now with the 3nps. Thats a good one. Gilbert has got a lot of wide spread string skipping in some of his songs.

That chord is just evil. You should realy transcribe it dude... I mean, there's no point struggling to play that chord when you can play the exact same chord in a different position.

Two chords I used to have difficulty playing when I first learnt John McLaughlin's 12/8 track... these are the chords:


E - 2
A - X
D - 4
G - 0
B - 2
E - 0

E - 3
A - X
D - 4
G - 4
B - 2
E - 0

And it's played like....



E |-------------0---------------0-----------------0-----------------0--
B |-------2---------------2-----------------2-----------------2--------
G |----------0---------------0-----------------4-----------------4-----
D |----4---------------4-----------------4-----------------4-----------
A |--------------------------------------------------------------------
E |-2---------------2--------------0--3--------------0--3--------------

E |-----------------0--------------0--|
B |-----------2--------------2--------|
G |--------------0--------------0-----|
D |--------4--------------4-----------|
A |-----------------------------------|
E |--0--2--------------2--------------| And Repeat!!


This is in 12/8 time signature if you didn't read above.

Hehe here is one I that came up for me one day.

C6 or Am7, its only hard when you look at it for the first time. Give it a try.

e - 3
B - 1
G - 2
D - 2
A - X (of open if you would like)
E - 3

Its a fun chord and can be great with some other sixth or seventh major chord progressions.

Yeah, you need you thumb to play it. I wuite often use my thumb to get some bass notes, i think it a great thing to do.
In Technical difficulties gilbert uses an evil diminished stretch, only minor thirds, but if played up to speed its quite hard to get them.

Right. Every time I start to think of a Mahavishnu Orchestra song that I think I can play, this happens! There's no such thing as an easy Mahavishnu song!
