Well after watching the video, whose link doesn't exist, I have no clue what you mean. SRV Solo Chords? Just like Maj and 7 Chords.
Yeah Dimebag is not the "Greatest Guitarist" of all time... Hendrix maybe... I must go get food to eat with my mouth

$250 for an amp? wow. is it worth it to invest that much in the amp?

what video, and by A B C D E F G chords do you mean major and minor chords, or just major, technically what you wrote meant just major, and power chords = 5 chord, root, 5th

Chords are basically every other notes

1,3,5...the basic

Example C,D,E,F,G,A,B,C

C,E,G.....are the note of the C chord


1,3,5,7... Maj7.................C,E,G,B
1,3,5,9 ....maj9..............................C,E,G,D

9=2
13=6

SUS= to omit the 3 with the option of inserting the 2 or 4

1,4,5......sus4

Min = play the 3rd 1/2 pitch down or flat
1,3b,5

Min7
1,3b,5,7

Min9
1,3b,5,9

diminish= play 1/2 pitch down...generally the 5th note
augment= play 1/2 pitch up....gererally the 5th note


Note..the plain 7 chord is usually the fith chord of the parent scale (dominate 7)
G7.....is the fith chord of key of C
Play the 7th note 1/2 pitch down or flat.

1,3,5,7b

G,B,D,F

You have to go back to the basic.....the 1/2 steps are between 3/4 and 7/8
This is your reference piont...it's also known as the Diatonic scale
or Major scale.

If you go look up the intervals, it'll clear it up....it's just terms that confuse most peaple. The interval state the 7 as a major 7, which = play the 7 as it is
to the diatonic scale.

A dominate is just the name of the 5th chord

To stay within the key, you'll have to play the 7th note of a dominate chord flat.
other wise it would be this...G,B,D,F# (which is a Gmaj7...which is the 1 or 4 chord)


You can also alter the base note (root)
Example......G/Cmaj
Play the G note instead of the C note while playing the Cmaj chord.

A power chord is just 1, 5

example.....

lay your index finger across the 5th fret...play the lower 4 strings (C6)

Put your pinkey on the 7th fret( small E string) with your index finger on the 5th fret
Now its Cmaj7
move pinky to 6th fret (1/2 pitch down)....C7
