Guitar Lesson 9

Open position chords and Guitar tablature Instruction

In this chapter we need to learn a little more about chords and tablature. Since we are learning the Am pentatonic scale, it's a good idea that we learn the chords that blend in with this scale. These chords will be used for our back up rhythm to play a few leads over. The first chord we should go over is the Am chord. The Am chord is the main chord in the Am pentatonic scale. 

The notes that make up the Am chord are A, C, E. All minor chords are made up of the (1st or root), flat 3rd and 5th notes. Remember in our previous lessons that I said the little (m) represents the minor chord. (Am) = A minor. The Major chord is represented with its letter name only. (C) = C Major.

Before we get into any progressions or rhythms, we need to learn the chords we will be using.
