guitar seventh chords

You can play only triads on your guitar? All other chords are a mystery to you? Do you want a bit more 'shine' on your chord progression? Or maybe you want some 'jazzy' polish on your playing?

For our video series "Back to Basics" today we cover exactly what you need: 7th chords. We are going a bit more in depth than the usual "here's the pattern, just play it" internet tutorial though.

That is to say, we don't see only the 'what' but also the 'why' of 7th chords.

This way, you can learn how to play them anywhere on the fretboard. Wherever you can play a major or a minor triad: there you will be able to play a 7th chord too!

Here we cover major 7th chords, minor 7th chords, dominant 7th chords and the elusive minor major 7th chords.

And all this is much simpler than you think. Have a look at the video below.
