What really make a good chord progression is the rhythm you play it with. You can make a standard Am C F sound amazing with just the right rhythm.

Yeah cool, huh! And then make that 2nd chord a sus2, grab your capo, and you can be a successful guitarist in CCM land.

I like classic metal songs like 'Dogs of War' off of Built to destroy album by Michael Schenker (MSG) but at the first of the song he's just hitting
e--------------
b-----8-----------
g-9---7----------
d-9---9---------
a-7---7------
e-0---0-------
Just E5 to the old Emin7 but over a loud distorted amp,and then the lead and the way he
just adds the layers to the song to build it up is just cool..great vocals, great Lead phrasing=Rocking song! No mindless noodling on that album,"Red skys" is cool..this is the same album that has "Captain Nemo" too..dated perhaps,yet classic I still like Ten Years After songs too..to me it's more than just some cool progression.
It's the rhythm,lyrics,production,tone, but yeah if you ain't got no riff,you ain't got no song!

Just a little piece off of the tail end of the main riff to
"Bark at the moon" what is neat is this little passing chord
Jake E.Lee uses. here it's used as a chord partial to take up
two beats instead of one.
But you would want to have it already fingered and not "FLAM" the chord.
Not sure what you would call the chord "G7add 9"?

e:-----5-----------(5)------
b:-6---6-8/10------(6)------
g:-5-4---7/9-------(4)------
d:-3-5---5/7-------(5)------
a:---------0--------------
e:------------------------

G7add9 is simply G9. If the b7 (F) were absent, then it would be Gadd9, AKA G2.

oh cool well now I know.. I really like that chord you listed Jazztele, the G7alt..are you using you using your pinky to hold down "B" and the "Eb" on the third and second strings?
either way it makes a cool 5th chord..The Mickey Baker book teaches that chord but he doesn't add the high e so yeah cool extension. I'm thinking

heres some cool bits..dont ask me for theory..dont know...im an ear player.....079900...079800...057700...057600...022 100..

You might have fun with this:
02010x...02020x...05040x...04020x...back to the 02010x and repeat

then shift up to
x02020...x02030...x05050...x02030...repeat and back to the above.

I like to travis pick the triads (xx201xx...xx202xx...xx504xx...xx402xx etc.).
Lots of simple variations, travel on up the neck, work it into a blues prog etc.

It's really simple, but it's the one that comes to mind... Just a Dm7, C, Bb, A. Sultans of Swing by Dire Straits. That III chord just spices it up.

jbmando

What III chord?

Ridge runner
August 11th, 2012, 02:27 AM
I think this is a clever example of using cowboy chords..and while the guy sings ok and plays ok..it still leaves a lot to be desired When compared to the Syd Barret classic..Still you can learn the song from this first video,and there's even this kid doing not a half bad job on youtube using a zippo lighter for a slide lol.. anyways here it is..cool song,clever progression. or you might try his other hit song "Have you got it yet?":roll:

Maybe he meant the third one, as in sequence

jbmando

Well, I wanted to see because it leads to a discussion of the key for stuff like "Sultans." If you look at it as in F, starting on the vi, the III would be A. If you say it's in Dm, the III is F, which is the key the chorus goes into.

Yeah, meant the major "3" chord as in A major, like it was in F.

Used this for a song I wrote, though I played it arpeggiated 3/4 time using thumb and 3 fingers on acoustic guitar, one bar per pattern and thumb over for the F in the bass, 6 notes per bar.

xx0231...xx0535...xx3010...xx2010
xx0231...xx0535...xx0230...(x32030 - 4th string not played when arpeggiated)
xx0231...1xx230...xx3330...5xx030
xx0231...1xx230...xx3330...xx2220...x4xx020...xx02 31

Here's a cool Ed Bickert chordal lick discussed here (http://www.mattwarnockguitar.com/jazz-guitar-lick-video-lesson-ed-bickert-chord-turnaround):

http://www.mattwarnockguitar.com/images/2012/06/Lick-of-the-Day-Ed-BIckert-Turnaround-Im-Old-Fashioned-JPG.jpg

One thing I noticed about this was Ed's note choice. There are eight chords and if I break down the note choice:

#roots = 0
#3rds = 8
#5ths = 2
#7ths = 7 (sole exception was the 9/6 chord)
natural extensions (9, 11, 13): 5 (1, 1, 3 respectively)
altered notes (b5, #5, b9, #9): 8 (0, 3, 2, 3 respectively)

The lack of roots and fifths is really smart -- stay out of the way of the bass player.
