Or is it an exercise in frustration?
This week we’re going to cover a basic ukulele chord that I think a lot of you have heard already, but may not remember.
I love teaching this chord progression when I teach guitar and there are times when I’m in a jam with my guitar and there are simply a ton of notes on the fretboard.
I think of this chord as a “free for all”. It works well for soloing, but can be a blast as a major ii V I chord in a metronome jam setting!
I can see this chord as a “guitarist’s nightmare”.
This chord progression has the same root as the one in the original R&B jam track “You Can’t Hurry Love” and it starts just before “I Love You”.
I hope you’ll be able to quickly pick this chord up for the rest of your guitar studies and you’ll be able to incorporate it into your own playing by jamming with an ukulele.
If you have a good understanding about the basic chords in the major scale, you’re probably already familiar with this idea.
Here it is in our popular scales tutorial.
When you find this chord in a song, you’ve got two options. You can either go in a few different directions with this chord or you can just keep the progression going to the end.
This is where I come in and I’ll show you how to add tension and a touch of color to the chord to make it more interesting.
This progression is a tad bit tricky to learn. It’s a common idea in some of R&B music and is easy to play in a jam setting, but difficult to solo with.
Here’s a clip where I show you how I like to add a “touch of color” to this chord progression.
Let me know what you think. I definitely think this sounds better in a different keys.
Happy jamming with you!
A video produced by Israeli military officials from Gaza showed the aftermath of a rocket launch from Gaza on Monday. The Israeli military said it fired seven shells at the rocket launch site and killed one of its members, according to AFP.
It was the fourth instance of Palestinian fire on Israeli soil in the last 48 hours, while the Palestinians were also accused of firing at them again. Israel had also claimed that Hamas was responsible for the attacks.
