Moveable Chord Resource

Postby rhapsodie » Mon May 30, 2005 2:49 am

I am looking for a damn good resource for moveable chord shapes in standard, Open G and Open D. I need shapes for things like dim7, Sus4, aug7, m9, 13, #7b5. Preferably with root on the E or A but D is ok too.

I have all the theory and have been working some shapes out but it's a mammoth task. Anyone got a fav resourse?

The sus4's easy enough. A barre, with or without slide, with the string tuned to the third fretted one fret ahead of the barre.

at [|] you can change the tuning on the virtual guitar, then pick any chord in the chord finder - shows inversions too!

for open G i mainly use the highest 3 strings G, B, D. Using a barre, (major chord) the b string can be fretted one higher to create a sus4 ( as Ricochet explained).
The minor is the mirror image (lowered third).
seventh is barre plus d string fretted 3 higher. These are using the g string as a root.
Using the d ( lower) string as a root, you can use a relatively easyshape to make a four - finger chord.
substitute bass strings when you want a deeper sound.

hope this doesn't confuse you more!
for more open g chords, check out some banjo sites as well.
