I'm trying to learn the basics of theory. And i have a chord progression that i like, and would like to know how theory could explain it to me. Also a few of the chords i could not find the name to them.

All my G chords will be like the one PicknGrin showed us in his video, using four fingers

My C chord will be play regular and using four fingers like PicknGrin showed us.

So here goes.

G6/E

G

G6/e

G

G6/E, last strum add an F on the high E string.

C played with 4 fingers

C shape at the 3rd fret, played with four fingers

Em

C shape at the 3rd fret, played with four fingers

Am barre chord

C shape at the 3rd fret, played with four fingers

Em

C

C shape at the 3rd fret, played with four fingers

D

Em


I know how confusing this is, but when i looked up the chords at whole note.com i didn't get any answers. Probably cause i didn't know which strings to mark as muted.


So is there anyone who understands what i posted, cause i don't. I would just like to know the names of the chords that i had to explain, and how music theory could explain my chord progression.

Thanks to anyone who read my mess of confusion, and my apologize to everyone who had to read it.

And and added note, did you think it was decent.

G6/E < G6 is G B D E. So adding the E bass note will sound good for sure.

Is this the chord you mean by G6/E?

E-3
B-3
G-0
D-2
A-2
E-0

G < Obviously sounds good after a G6 because it is pretty much the same chord.

G6/e

G

G6/E, last strum add an F on the high E string.

This? It seems pretty hard. F is the minor 7th of G.

E-1
B-3
G-0
D-2
A-2
E-0

C played with 4 fingers

Do you mean A or B?

A B
E-3---
B-3--5
G-0--5
D-2--5
A-3--3
E-x---

C shape at the 3rd fret, played with four fingers

Em < C and Em have the same chord function as they share two common tones.

C shape at the 3rd fret, played with four fingers

Am barre chord < Am is the relative minor of C and also shares two common tones.

C shape at the 3rd fret, played with four fingers

Em

C

C shape at the 3rd fret, played with four fingers

D

Em


I can tell you they all sound good together because they are all chords found in the C major scale. You're right though, it's very confusing the way you wrote it.

Awe man i must of added the notes to the wrong place, let me try again.

Gm/G starting at the 8th fret

G

Gm/G at 8th fret

G

Gm/G

G5/ Dsus4/dsus

C

Dsus2/G (this replaces my C shape at the 3rd fret

the rest seems right with my first post.


I am so sorry for that. I'm new to using that function on that web site.

Does this help any, or does it still apply to the answer you gave me.
