Guitar Lessons: Beginner
After you know the 1-4-5 chords
what do you learn next?
In a song, I know that you play the 1,4,5 chords, but what if there are also minor chords in the song, how do do know what minor chord to play?
That's a great question ....... in every key, when as scale is harmonized the scale produces a series of chords (three major chords 1, 4, 5 chords), (three minor chords 2,3,6 chords) and one diminished chord (the 7 chord).
For example the key of C would produce:
chord 1 = C major
chord 2 = D minor
chord 3 = E minor
chord 4 = F major
chord 5 = G major
chord 6 = A minor
chord 7 = B diminished
chord 8 = C major
We have a special section of our Express Guitar Course to specifically cover this important area in great detail in all keys etc., (Express Guitar - Design Your Own Chord Shapes)

Rave Reviews for Express Guitar:
|As a student of Mike Hayes since 1999, I have found his teaching methods and products to be first class. Whatever style or area of music I have been interested in, he has provided me with useful information, advice and study materials. His style of teaching and teaching products enabled me to progress through his guitar course far quicker than I ever imagined. He also helps in teaching yourself to find and develop your own style of music. Mikeís teaching gives his studentís the ability to become useful musicians, not just guitarists.

This course teaches us how to learn, how to retain, and how to recall information quickly. This entire program is built around "connected learning" with key phrases, picture words ( yes there is such a thing ) and the most dynamic personal motivator I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.
