This lesson discusses several interesting extended and suspended chords that can substitute for the basic open position, C, F, and G chords. These unique chord voicings can be excellent for anyone who wants to play as a soloist, (with the guitar backing up their vocal parts).

The basic set of open guitar chords is an excellent place to start for anyone new to the guitar. And, learning them can be especially helpful for any musician who has already played other instruments. It is also a great help to any musician who is transitioning to the guitar for the first time from another instrument. However, what we lack with our open position group of chords is that of unique added extensions, as well as, the suspended or altered chord colors. In this lesson I demonstrate several different; chord inversions, extended chords, plus both the suspended 2nd, and the suspended 4th chords as well. On top of that, I'll be showing some basic Strum-hand techniques including; simple finger-style guitar plucking and some work with upper-three string harmony application.
