But I learned most of my chords by watching other people.

Here's another. Pick a chord and then select "Inversions" and it will show another 4-6 ways to play that chord without all of the other notes added in:

Ehh new question how does one "listen" to a chord and figure it out? I have a video of someone playing, not close up, and I just cannot get this chord, so I resorted to using the recordings of random chords and I still have no luck any help? Thanks

 

Well, first I listen to the lowest note in the chord to help me find the base. Then, I add the "flavour". You will learn to recognize major, minor, seventh, ninth etc. all by ear. For the complicated ones, you just strum the chord that is your best guess, then adjust the notes until they match.

 

You can also deduct which chord is being used by following along with the inversions that have been played previous. This can often be an indicator as to the current chord.

Well that's almost as convoluted written out as what Sas wrote.

Derrick learn the 9th shapes and the 7#9 shapes as well. Do you want me to post some chord diagrams for you? If I go to the effort I need to know you are going to work at it.

 

If so what chords do you know you want?

 

Do it. Just do it.

 

Speaking of - I've heard of CAGED. I understand the A shape goes up barred giving C, D, E and the E shape goes up barred giving G, A, but am confused on C, G and D. Do you just barre like the A and E shapes?
