Have you ever seen a guitar player play something and thought “what kind of crazy shapes are they playing”? Well in this video, Nate Savage is here to show you twenty different ways to play the same chord. This is a great way to shake up your playing and give you the tools you need to play more interesting variations of the chords you already know.
One of the huge benefits of these new shapes is something you’ll notice when you’re playing with another guitarist. Instead of being stuck playing the exact same thing as the other player, you can now play a different version of the exact same chord. This immediately sounds a lot better since you’ll be playing two distinct parts designed to fit together in harmony.
Don’t feel like you need to grasp every single shape in this lesson right away. Grab a few and work on them until you know them as well as your other chord shapes. Every time you master one, add another. Before you know it, you’ll have all twenty shapes in your back pocket!
