Chord Guitar Lesson

 

 

by Taura Eruera

 
 This chord guitar lesson is a single pager, quick and dirty lesson. It explains to you how to make a scale using numbers. And then how to make chords using these numbers.

Explaining scales and chord by numbers is a useful technique. When you understand the concepts by numbers then you could learn chords and scales with letter names. Then you can learn them by sound too.

In the meantime you can get started with the numbers you know so well: numbers 1 to 8. Yes!

Prefer pictures and a human voice to numbers? When you click here for a free video course on chords and scales you will be offered an option to download a free course on scales and chords for melodywriters.

Don't let that put you off.  Chords and scales are the same for all musicians on all instruments. What works for melodywriters works for guitar players too. 

Did I mention the video course is free?

You can also supplement this free static lesson with another free dynamic lesson. With an interactive flash presentation Ricky Adams shows you how to create chords from scales.

When you know this information off by heart, you can free your imagination from unnecessary chains. No longer does your mind have to stumble over chords you can’t spell, scales you can remember, and note names you don’t know.

Your mind can now do its main job: give your body clear instructions on what to play. (This assumes you have programmed your body with guitar principles)

Not taking the time to know this chord guitar lesson robs your imagination of the ability and vocabulary to express itself creatively.

Finding another reason not to learn this stuff is like shooting another bullet into your foot.

So how easy is it to walk, let alone run, with a bullet-ridden foot?

So what does this chord guitar lesson provide you with? It provides you with the concept of a scale and how to use the scale to create chords. This is essentially a mental function. Like learning times table. Or vocabulary.

So what does this chord guitar lesson not provide you with?

It does not teach you how to the play chords on guitar. It does not teach you about chord voicings or how to arrange chords. (But it sure helps you to understand how to create chords on your fingerboard).
