  • so i'd there is a $10 essential chords

  • that we need to get going if you don't know how to form any other shapes we

  • were unable to pick it up just their

  • I'm I've done a second video way right to a close up

  • and down show you how to form the cord

  • can step by step so I but it for

  • this first step on your page 1 is to learn your ten Essential

  • pretty open courts dinner next one

  • we have to go onto is so how to organize those courts

  • into system case it's no point in just learning

  • a bunch of random courts because you don't know how they work together all

  • what to do with them so on the way that we

  • actually organize court is by putting them into you keys

  • and key is basically like little family if courts the collection of them seven

  • seven courts where they all work together they all agree with each other

  • in kind of like

  • performs a little musical world that sounds good

  • and songs get written inside of keys

  • there sa 24 different keys but we can start of

  • just by learning to love them scandal we need to get going

  • for ski we're going to learn is keep see

  • and again this seven courts they're going to cover here

  • so I'm you starting off with a secord obviously cuz wen Qi si

  • 9 an important to me to use D minor nine

  • port number three-c_ mines

  • would force and if Mar

  • court 5g I'm

  • more than six team a minute on

  • in court seven is be diminished on

  • what results back and see

  • so we know all those courts except for the diminished one at the end

  • and Tom I'll show you how to do that now it's gonna be the second fret on 5th

  • Street

  • and then the second fret on the thirteenths you skipping over string

  • there

  • then you going coming here on the third federal fourth ring

  • and then the third fret on second stream

  • with the other two things has a very symmetrical shape on

  • on

  • would love tension because it has tritone intervals

  • inside oven

  • not all that tension energy gets resolved

  • on

  • into a place of rest when you resolve into semen

  • so once again you have seen its go through the Kenyan

  • night

  • be mine

  • mine

  • in

  • the NCI

  • be diminish even

  • C

  • some sure he could hear how we created little musical world

  • using those seven courts where everything feet in really well together

  • the Knicks key that we can 9 to you using the

  • courts we already learnt is Keith G sir

  • once again a stunning on the cheek was out on a squad number one

  • nine

  • 14 now would be in a mine

  • with 3 E's be mine on

  • court for C

  • board five years dean

  • 16 in mind

  • 17 is if shopped emissions

  • and hewlett engineering and in school is often

  • gene for F sharp diminished it's the same shade

  • as be diminished its just starting in a different place here

  • on the first fatal 243 see once you learn your be

  • munitions just transpose that entire shape

  • with the first thing you now starting on the first fatal faltering night

  • you can have your shop dimensions

  • these diminished shapes the 7th Court they really don't get used the whole lot

  • in pop songs although the Beatles did find some

  • really ingenious ways including diminished chords and

  • pop songs which is really really clever but genuinely

  • a you don't used them too much say

  • week using them all learning the mostly just to be able to complete the full

  • key on guitar so um that's kinda like step to you

  • once you have learnt your ten Essential shapes

  • the next step is to organize them into the two keys

  • though we've just been through the key of see

  • and Kiev G and make sure that you memorize those so that you don't have to

  • look at the sheet or not

  • like that you cannot display them from memory once you have

  • those two steps the next thing to adian to the mix is going to be the use of any

  • caper or capper depending on which way you want to pronounce it

  • I'm and they come in a lot of different shapes and sizes and price points

  • so my one hears

  • just an example I'm and what happens is that we can

  • placed this somewhere on our guitar say

  • here on the 2nd fret news 12 place it kind of just behind the Frick

  • and I am now we can take all the courts in

  • the two keys that we've learnt you play them in front of them

  • caper position and that instantly allows us to play in the Tana

  • new keys as I mentioned is 24 keys so for example now

  • we can have none

  • on

  • my

  • on

  • on

  • morph remove it same time one trip now in a different key

  • on

  • the

  • mmm

  • no word about up saying on 243 nine

  • I

  • done

  • my

  • do

  • on

  • see our handy DC don't have to learn any new court she simply

  • media caper two different positions up and down the neck

  • and playing in the QC and keep G now you have

  • I really extended-range keys that you complain and this is really important

  • because obviously

  • not all songs are written in the key of C you know the Kia

  • G they could be in something like a a flat or

  • see shop you know all these different he say using

  • the caper re and attain courts organized into those hoochies

  • using that combination gives us the power to play in a lot of different keys

  • in a lot of different songs

  • simply by adding in cable into the mix so I on the next page

  • we're going to out talk a little bit about

  • how to make you courts sound perfect so

  • what happens is that a lot or beginners

  • am will learn the shape accord but it still sounds awful

  • even though the fingers are in the right I place

  • so this three reasons normally for this

  • many fingers you kinda as a checklist so safer having

  • Corsi as an example alright saline

  • on can be that im I find that you have like a buzzing

  • sound on wanted the strings or perhaps one industry and

  • is meted out in its not sounding so wat

  • chip to check that is just to choose your court in and go downstream

  • questioning

  • nine

  • I

  • I want to make sure that every stream within the court is sounding

  • nice in clear Casey get a full sounding court

  • so the first thing is kinda obvious which means that you want to make sure

  • that you're pressing down hard enough

  • on each point O'Kane for beginners it hurts you know when you start learning

  • to play

  • and for this reason a lot of beginners avoid pressing down hard because hurting

  • their fingers

  • but I it's a something you have to persevere with little pain barrier to go

  • through

  • until the calluses build up a top city fingers and its gonna stop hurting

  • but until then you might find some you courts are working simply because

  • on certain points in our actually pressing down hard enough to make the No

  • come out

  • sets the first thing to check then

  • you wanna make sure that you're on placing your fingers

  • just behind the fritz wherever possible sir within this third fret I could place

  • my finger back here

  • at the back or I could play said at front and given a choice it's always

  • better to place your fingers

  • directly behind e-trade she can see

  • here behind the third here on a second here behind the first rights here

  • just behind for its own my C shape is pushed forward to the front rather than

  • being at the back

  • and on every chord is not possible but wherever it is

  • try to endeavor to que finished just behind for

  • 9 and that will help you to eliminate a lot
