Chords and their uses

The following is a more in depth description of several chords and
their common uses:
  • Major 7 - gives a fuller sound, often used in jazz
  • Major 9 - used in jazz
  • Major6add9 - used often in country and in jazz
  • Suspended chords usually resolve to the major, often used to breakup a static vamp (instead a playing C the whole time, switch from C to Csus to C, etc)
  • Minor - sad chord
  • m6 - used in funk
  • m7 - used in funk
  • m7#5 - used in fusion
  • m11 - used in funk
  • m(M7) - dark, moody
  • Ninth - used in funk
  • Augmented - connecting chord
  • Diminished - passing chord
  • 7sus2 - used in folk
  • m#5 - often used as a IIIm chord
  • maj13#11 - used in soul
  • 9#11 - chromatic passing chord resolving down a half step, or as a substitute for a IV7 chord
  • 13#11 - same usage as 9#11
  • M7#11 - dramatic ending chord
  • M7b5#9 - ending chord, or a passing chord to I
  • m7b5 - usually used as a IIm in a minor key
  • 9sus4 (11) - most popular substitution for dominant 7 chords
  • Augmented 7 - V chord in a minor key
  • Diminished - substitute for second half of IV chord measure in the blues, one half step higher (C = I, F = IV, F#dim would be used)
  • The V chord may be substituted on the weak beats (2 and 4) for a Im
  • 7sus4b9 - V chord resolving to Im, or as I chord in Phrygian mode
  • m7#5 - IIIm in the harmonized major scale
  • 13b9 - V7 chord Alternate from M6 to M7 and back when playing a static I chord.

The Circle of Fifths

                The next step in understanding any guitar theory is to understand
the circle of fifths.  Its importance is that it diagrams several
important concepts.  First, it is used in determining scales.
Second, it is used to determine which chords are in any given key.
Third, it is the basis for chord substitutions.

To begin with, I'll demonstrate how the circle of fifths is used in
a blues progression in G (something that hopefully everyone is
familiar with).  Twelve bar blues in G begins with 4 bars of G, 2
bars of C, 2 bars of G, one bar of D7, one bar of C, one bar of G,
and finally one bar of D7 (as shown below).  This progression is
also commonly known as

  • |G |G |G |G |C |C |G |G |D7 |C |G |D7 |

a I - IV - V progression.  If you are not familiar with this
progression, learn it.  It is one of the most basic building blocks
in rock music.  Traces of it can be found in everything from Led
Zeppelin to Doo-Wop to surf music to Eric Clapton.

The next diagram shows the chords that are in the key of G.

  • G A B C D E F#

As you can see, the G is the I, the C is the IV, and the D7 is the V
in the I- IV - V progression.  Any F chords played in the key of G
need to be sharped, otherwise they are considered to be out of key.

In the same way, the circle of fifths shows which notes need to
sharped or flatted in chord constuction.  To form a major chord, the
first, third, and fifth notes of the scale need to be played.  In
the case of Gmajor (or just G as it is commonly called), a G note
would be 1, a B note would be 3, and a D note would be 5.

  • e||---|---|-o-|---| G (1) As you can see, the open G chord
  • B||---|---|---|---| B (3) is made up entirely of G, B, and D notes
  • G||---|---|---|---| G (1) (I, 3, and 5). Note that any G chord
  • D||---|---|---|---| D (5) requires a 7 note to be played would
  • A||---|-o-|---|---| B (3) be an F#, not an F.
  • E||---|---|-o-|---| G (1)

For the third part, the Circle of fifths gives an indication of when
to play minors, etc.  The following chart shows some guidelines.
Later on

  • I = major
  • II = minor7
  • III = minor7
  • IV = major
  • V = dominant7
  • VI = minor (known also as the relative minor)
  • VII = diminished

I will show some substitution rules for incorporating more unusual
chords into a progression.  It is important to remember that these
rules are only general guidelines.  If you look at the chords of
some songs that you know, you will probably see that as a general
trend, these rules are followed, but on many occasions they aren't.

One thing to keep in mind: a chord progression may be in the key of
A (A is the I chord) without playing an A chord first.  Look at the

  • |E |E |A |D |

This the chord progression in Lola, by the Kinks.  In this case, it
is in the key of A (A = I, D = IV, E = V).  This shows that the
first chord played in a progression does not determine the key.
Another example is the IIm - V - I chord progression, which is one
of the most common in western music.  As you can see, it starts on
the IIm chord.

Since I don't have very good graphics capabilities here, I will
represent the circle of fifths in chart form, as would be read
clockwise from 12 o'clock.

  • C - no sharps or flats.
  • G - F#
  • D - F#, C#
  • A - F#, C#, G#
  • E - F#, C#, G#, D#
  • B - F#, C#, G#, D#, A#
  • F# (Gb) - F#, C#, G#, D#, A#, E# (F)
  • Db - Bb, Eb, Ab, Db, Gb
  • Ab - Bb, Eb, Ab, Db
  • Eb - Bb, Eb, Ab
  • Bb - Bb, Eb
  • F - Bb

Notice the spacing between chords is the same for each key.  Here is
the example again in the key of G.

  • G A B C D E F#

Notice that there is a whole step between all chords except between
III and IV, and between VII and I.  This will be true for all keys.

That pattern is also the same as that for the major scale.  The
above diagram shows the notes contained in the G major scale.

  • The VI chord is called the relative minor, because it shares many
notes with the tonic (I chord).  If C were the tonic, Am would be
the relative minor.  If you play one after the other, you will
notice they sound good together.  If something is played in an Am
key, you use the exact same chords as if it were being played in the
key of C.  In this way, you can determine all of the mionr keys as
well from the circle of fifths.

Difference between U and Ur Boss!!

When you take a long time, you're slow. When your boss takes a long time, he's thorough. When you don't do it, you're lazy. When your boss doesn't do it, he's too busy. When you make a mistake, you're an idiot. When your boss makes a mistake, he's only human. When doing something without being told, you're overstepping your authority. When your boss does the same thing, that's initiative. When you take a stand, you're being bull-headed. When your boss does it, he's being firm. When you overlooked a rule of etiquette, you're being rude. When your boss skips a few rules, he's being original. When you please your boss, you're apple polishing. When your boss pleases his boss, he's being co-operative. When you're out of the office, you're wandering around. When your boss is out of the office, he's on business. When you're on a day off sick, you're always sick. When your boss is a day off sick, he must be very ill. When you apply for leave, you must be going for an interview. When your boss applies for leave, it's because he's overworked.

A Doctor and a Lawyer

After dozens of very expensive tests and weeks of hospitalization, the rich old man was told he had only 24 hours to live. He immediately called his doctor and his lawyer to his room. He asked the doctor to stand by one side of his bed and his lawyer to stand by the other. After standing for some time, the doctor asked "What do you want me to do?" "Nothing. Just stand there." A while later, the lawyer asked "What do you want me to do?" "Nothing. Just stand there." As the hours wore on, the doctor and the lawyer watched the man weaken. When his time had almost arrived, the doctor and the lawyer again asked "Why are we standing here?" "Well," said the old man, "Christ died between two thieves, so I thought I'd do the same!

Power chords!!

Let's start with 2 note power chords with the root on the E string:

Guitar bar chord diagram Guitar bar chord picture

This chord is an E power chord or E5. The 2 note power chord uses only the root and the fifth (E and B in this case). Play only the 2 lowest strings and use only down strokes (strum the strings with your right hand going down from the fat E). If we slide this power chord 1 fret further, like we did with the bar chords, we get an F power chord:

Guitar bar chord diagram Guitar bar chord picture

If we go 2 frets further from here we get a G power chord:

Guitar bar chord diagram

I think you got the picture by now. Here's the guitar neck with all the notes from the E string:

Guitar bar chord picture

Besides 2 note guitar power chords there are also 3 note power chords. They use the root, fifth and again the root but one octave higher and they look like this:

Guitar bar chord diagram Guitar bar chord picture

The same principle as with bar chords and 2 note power chords goes for 3 note power chords: slide it up the neck to get other chords. If we slide 1 fret further we get an F power chord:

Guitar bar chord diagram Guitar bar chord picture

And this goes on, look at the guitar neck above for reference.

There's an alternative way to fret 3 note power chords: instead of using finger 3 and 4, use your little finger to fret 2 strings at once. This example is an F power chord fretted in the alternative way:

Guitar bar chord diagram Guitar bar chord picture

Let's have a look at 2 note power chords with the root on the A string:

Guitar bar chord diagram Guitar bar chord picture

Play only strings 4 and 5, don't play the low E and other open strings. We can slide this up 2 frets, what gives us a B power chord:

Guitar bar chord diagram Guitar bar chord picture

One fret further gives us a C power chord:

Guitar bar chord diagram

There are also 3 note power chord with the root on A:

Guitar bar chord diagram Guitar bar chord picture

Slide this up and we have a B:

And ...

Here's the guitar neck with all the notes of the A string for easy reference:

That was it, now plug in you axe, turn on the distortion, turn that volume up and start banging those guitar power chords!

What is a power chord ?

Guys this Lesson is for Beginners "a introduction to power chords"!!
  • Here power chords are also called as 5 chords(G5,E5) , normally Slash chords.We usually recognize them theoretically as major or minor where a note is removed, called as "3rd".Its sound much heavy and is played mainly in heavy metal,rock/metal music.I love it as it is the easiest and impressive way for accompany.
how about trying a G power Chord(G5)... use your index and ring finger on the strings!
  • e|-----|
  • b|-----|
  • g|-----|
  • d|-----|
  • a|-5---|
  • e|-3---|
"where index finger is on the 3rd fret and ring finger is on the 5th fret"
  • And when you move it up two frets ,you play A power chord(A5)..
  • e|-----|
  • b|-----|
  • g|-----|
  • d|-----|
  • a|-7---|
  • e|-5---|
  • Here is a diagram which shows 'E' scale power chords we can extract from it!! Its on 'A' and 'E' string.
E minor power chords

E minor/aeolian scale

  • Combine all the shapes and try to come up with a real riff...

Glossary of music theory terms!!

  • scale - A group of notes that work well together
  • chromatics - These are basically all twelve (12) notes in an octave. The naturals (7) and non-naturals (5) together make up the chromatics. (7+5=12).
  • naturals - The notes that do not have sharp or flat names (A, B, C, D, E, F, G). There are seven (7) of them.
  • non-naturals - The notes that do have the sharps or flats in their names (A#, C#, D#, F#, G#). There are five (5) of them. These notes are also often called the "accidentals".
  • octave - In traditional music there are only 12 different notes, then they repeat themselves. When you move up or down 12 notes, you will find a higher or lower version of the note you started on. This is an octave. Same note, but one octave higher or lower.
  • sharps - Sharp generally just means higher. Sharp of the note you are on would be one note higher. To tune sharp you would tune "up".
  • flats - Flat generally just means lower. Flat of the note you are on would be one note lower. To tune flat you would tune "down".
  • major - This is a type of scale or chord that sounds bright, happier, and more upbeat. It has no flats in it. This is kind of subjective, and will be explained much more in-depth in the lessons.
  • minor - This is a type of scale or chord that sounds darker, maybe more sad, kinda gloomy. Minor scales or chords do use flats. This is kind of subjective, and will be explained much more in-depth in the lessons.
  • root-note - This is basically the same thing as "key". The root note is the note that the music is centered on or built from. You could say its the "main note" in a song.
  • transpose - Transposing to another key or root simply means to move our scale, etc to another key or root note. It will be the same scale, etc. but now centered on a different key.
  • position - This would be the four frets that your hand is over at any given time. You have four fingers, one for each fret. Position also refers to the pattern of notes you would play at any four frets for your chosen scale, etc.
  • fret - Technically, the frets are the small metal bars across the neck of your guitar or bass. When you press your fingertip down between two "frets" you will fret the string and make the appropriate corresponding note. (you do not actually press your fingertip down "on" the frets, but between them)
  • interval - This is the space between notes. (see whole-step and half-step)
  • half-step - This is the shortest interval. It is the next note up or down from where you are. For guitar and bass players, this would simply be moving up or down one fret.
  • whole-step - This is a longer interval than the half-step. With a whole-step you would skip a note and play the second one. For guitar and bass players you would simply "skip a fret" up or down.
  • pentatonic - This is a type of scale using five different notes. Penta means five and tonic means tone. So a pentatonic scale is a "five tone scale".
  • mode - If theory is learned properly, the meaning of this would be different, but this term generally applies to a group of seven note scales.
  • melodic-interval - A single note.
  • harmonic-interval - Two notes at a time.
  • chordal-interval - Three or more notes at a time.
  • barre - The use of your index finger to hold down more than one string at one fret in a single chord, in order to build chords with that fret as the "nut".
  • barre chord - A guitar chord in which your index finger barres all strings at one fret, and the rest of the chord is built using that fret as the nut. For example, in an F# chord, the index finger barres the second fret, and the other three fingers make an E chord using the second fret as the nut.
  • bass note - The lowest note played in a chord, shown either by the chord name (e.g. E in E) or the note listed after a slash (e.g. F# in G/F#).
  • chord - Three or more pitches played simultaneously, usually a root, third, and fifth, though sometimes a seventh is added.
  • circle of fifths - A musical tool showing the relatedness of keys.
  • closely related keys - The fifth up and fifth down (fourth up) from any key. For example, the keys closely related to G are C (fifth down) and D (fifth up).
  • diminished fifth - An interval made up of two whole steps and two half steps. For example, the distance between D and Ab is a diminished fifth.
  • diminished chord - A chord consisting of a minor third and a diminished fifth. For example, a D diminished chord (D?) contains D, F, and Ab.
  • dominant - The fifth note of the major scale. The major chord built on the dominant, designated V, leads strongly toward the tonic.
  • fifth - In a scale, the distance between a certain note and another note four notes above it. The certain note is counted as I, the note four notes above that is V.
  • half step - The smallest recognized interval in Western music. The distance represented by one fret on a guitar is a half step.
  • interval - The musical distance between two notes, measured by the number of whole and half steps between the two notes.
  • inversion - The use of notes in the chord other than the root as the bass note (e.g. F# bass in a D chord).
  • key - The basis of musical sounds in a piece. Each key uses the notes and chords of the corresponding major scale. The key is named after the tonic (e.g. the tonic in the key of A is A).
  • leading - The tendency that certain notes and chords have to resolve to other specific notes or chords.
  • leading tone - The seventh note of the major scale, one half step below the tonic. This note leads strongly toward the tonic.
  • major chord - A chord consisting of a major third and a perfect fifth. For example, a D major chord (D) contains D, F#, and A.
  • major scale - A group of eight notes with the following whole step/half step pattern between them: W-W-H-W-W-W-H. For example, the A major scale consists of A, B, C#, D, E, F#, G#, and A.
  • major seventh - An interval made up of five whole steps and one half step. For example, the distance between D and C# is a major seventh.
  • major third - An interval made up of two whole steps. For example, the distance between D and F# is a major third.
  • minor chord - A chord consisting of a minor third and a perfect fifth. For example, a D minor chord (Dm) contains D, F, and A.
  • minor seventh - An interval made up of four whole steps and two half steps. For example, the distance between D and C is a minor seventh.
  • minor third - An interval made up of one whole step and one half step. For example, the distance between D and F is a minor third.
  • modulate - To change keys.
  • muting - Pressing your finger against a string while playing a chord to avoid playing that string. Muting is represented by an x in my chord diagrams (as in E/G#: 4x2400).
  • perfect fifth - An interval made up of three whole steps and one half step. For example, the distance between D and A is a perfect fifth.
  • resolve - A musical progression which brings finality to part of a piece.
  • root - The note a chord is built on.
  • seventh - In a scale, the distance between a certain note and another note six notes above it. The certain note is counted as I, the note six notes above that is vii.
  • seventh chord - A chord consisting of a major third, a perfect fifth, and a minor seventh. For example, a D seventh chord (D7) contains D, F#, A, and C. Major seventh chords (notated maj7) contain a major seventh instead of a minor seventh.
  • suspended chord - A chord containing either the root, second, and fifth (sus2), or the root, fourth, and fifth (sus4).
  • third - In a scale, the distance between a certain note and another note two notes above it. The certain note is counted as I, the note two notes above that is iii.
  • tonic - The note on which the major scale is based. The major chord built on the tonic, designated I, is the eventual goal of any song.
  • transpose - Moving the musical position of a piece, keeping all intervals as they were in the original piece. For example, if you have C, F, and G (I, IV, and V), and you want to transpose to the key of G, then use the I, IV, and V of G, which are G, C, and D.
