3 Guitar Chords That Will Blow your Friends Away
Impressive Chord Number 1
You're sitting at the back of the movies and the opening credits for Casino Royale are mesmerizing you.
The twangy guitar of the James Bond theme is making you feel like you're a special agent, licensed to kill.
Then the credits are brought to an end by the stark chiming of one of the most recognisable chords in the world.
Can you hear it in you're head now?
It's one of those chords that can never be used again without people recognizing where it comes from.
What's it called? How do I play it?
It's a minor 9 chord with a major 7. That's right, you heard me. Min9Maj7.
Here it is in the key of A minor.
Impressive Chord Number 2
This is the Jimi Hendrix chord. Best known for it's use in Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix, our next awesome chord is the E7 sharp 9. (I can't find the wee sharp sign on my Mac keyboard. Don't they have guitar chords at Apple?).
Be sure to play this one only in E. You have to bang the bottom E string hard and hit the top 4 strings (much like the one above). Of course it can be played elsewhere on the keyboard but you miss out on the banging of the bottom E string.
You could call this a Pavlovian chord because when you strum it once, everyone listening will immediately start singing the same song.
Chickachaaaang . . . . . .it's been a hard days night . . .
What is that crazy opening chord? Well , in truth it's a combination of piano bass and guitar. To play it on the guitar, you play a G7sus4. The bass is playing a D and god knows what the piano is doing.
Here's the G7sus4 chord.
