Learn to play Guitar: Lesson # 6

Plotting of the chord notes in a guitar
Let's now plot for C Major

As learnt from the example of lesson # 5,The three notes for C Major are C,E,G

Now we'll plot the chord string by string, on each string we will calculate whether the string will be played free or which fret needs to be played

1st String E : Play Free
Let's take the first string which is 'E'
As the note is one of the note from C,E,G so this string will be played free

2nd String B : 1st Fret
Lets take the second string which is 'B'
Let's take the progression
Free     1st Fret
B           C

3rd String G : Play Free
Lets take the third string which is 'G'
Let's take the progression
Again as the note is one of the note from C,E,G so this string will be played free

4th String D : 2nd Fret
Lets take the fourth string which is 'D'
Let's take the progression
Free     1st Fret    2nd Fret
D           D#              E

5th String A : 3rd Fret
Lets take the fifth string which is 'A'
Let's take the progression
Free     1st Fret    2nd Fret  3rd Fret 
A           A#              B               C

6th String E : Play Free
Let's take the 6th string which is 'E'
As the note is one of the note from C,E,G so this string will be played free

I hope this illustrates well how to plot the chord notes in a guitar . But to further clarify more details will be given in the next lesson along with pictures of the plotting. So Stay Tuned!
