Have Lapstick will travel – Los Angeles

Well, there’s not much to do in Downtown L.A. so after an early dinner I settled down with the guitar and tried to make the most of the free time I had before my jet lag kicked in.

Through TGP I found this great video with accompanying charts that homes in on learning some of the most useful chord shapes (48 shapes in all that would pretty much cover most of your regular) plus how to connect them with walking bass lines.

Spent about two hours getting some of the fingerings down.  You can find the original chord charts here courtesy of MattRod.

  1. Hey thanks, this is actually a really useful idea.

    One thing though, those chords are titled “root 6” whereas they actually mean the lowest not is on the E string. The pattern is easy once you realise that whats happening is just inversions with the lowest note on the E string, then the A string, then the D string.

  2. yeah – you’re right – it’s not actually the root tone
