💬 Chords in a Key Lesson Description
When I first learned how to find guitar chords that sound good together, and finally understood WHY they sound good together, it was seriously a game changer. Since then I've developed an approach to clearly finding and seeing chords in a key on the guitar and I'd like to share that approach with you today. This fourth episode of my series called "How to Learn Guitar Chords" is about playing chords in a key, identifying chord degree numbers, and how to construct and practice a specific, moveable, triad chord voicing that I can promise will come in very handy. Don't miss my song examples near the end where I demonstrate how these chord shapes and this theory knowledge can be used to play and understand countless songs.
I hope you enjoyed this lesson about finding the chords in a key. Let me know what you thought in the comments.
