To get the kinds of sounds you hear on commercial tracks, you need to learn how to play up the neck of your guitar.
We’ll learn to take a basic chord – such as E – and play related chords at higher frets. We’ll add melody notes. We’ll learn some simple music theory that lets us play cool-sounding substitute chords.
By getting beyond the predictable, basic open shapes, we can add variety- and a touch of ‘polish’ – to our playing.
If you’ve ever wondered why a professional guitarist sounds more ‘advanced’, then this is the secret.
And it’s not that hard to get started!
