can someone explain the "base fret" in the need a chord thread? the chords dont work if the base fret doesn't say one, but thats because i dont understand it. can someone explain?
Schecter C-1 Classic
Peavey 5150 2x12 Combo
MXR 10 Band EQ
I think an example is the best way to do this.

"A... base-fret 5 frets 1 3 3 2 1 1"

Here fret "1" is actually fret 5.

So the chord is really 577655.

Make sense?
