Use of Scale Tones to Connect Chords

When playing common chords you can use scale tones to connect chords. This makes chord changes much more interesting and keeps the listener’s interest from chord to chord.

Starting with a simple A major chord at the 2nd fret, strum the chord down once, then add first finger to 2nd fret on the A string – while holding the A chord pick the B note. Then use third finger 4th fret A string and pick the C# note. You can use this to go to the D major chord. Next time I will cover doing this technique with other open chords. With the use of a capo transpose to each position (register or fret) of your instrument, then to all 15 keys.
