Chord modifications, or mods, can elevate your rhythm and lead guitar playing. If you’re ready to transform your open chords into deeper, complex chords with just a few adjustments, stay tuned!
This episode will cover chord modifications by way of learning a lick. We’ll start by seeing how chord modifications come up in the guitar lick I call “cement mixer.” This lick reveals so much about playing within a chord shape.
“Cement mixer” is the perfect gateway into chord mods. There’s a perception that chord mods are an advanced technique. However, the sooner you can practice them, the more your sonic landscape will really open up. So, whether you’re a beginner or advanced guitar player, you’re going to learn so much from working on your chord mods.
Chord mods on guitar allow you to add melody to chord playing. It can add another layer of musicality to your rhythm playing. If you play just by yourself, I promise that employing some chord mods will spice up your playing.
In addition to learning the “cement mixer” lick and how chord mods can improve your playing, we’ll get a chance to hear from Darren, a TAC Family member’s experiences on building a guitar routine. It’s well worth your time, so don’t skip!
