Overview

Whether you’re just picking up the guitar for the first time or you’ve been playing the guitar for years and want to take your playing to the next level, Guitar Chords 101 will help you develop a deeper knowledge and understanding of chords. Guitar Chords 101 presents Berklee’s approach to constructing chords, a method that focuses less on the shape of an individual chord, and more on the notes that the chord is based around. You will learn to construct and play triads, basic 7th chords, inversions, and different chord voicings—the basic foundations guitarists use to write or perform in any number of different styles.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

– Look at a lead sheet and play chord voicings
– Construct triads, 7th chords, and inversions
– Play and know the voicings of various chord qualities such as a major triad, minor triad, dominant 7, and gospel chords
– Play triads over bass notes
