Improvising guitar chords using the D chord - Part 2



As well as adding fingers to chords (See first guitar video) you can remove fingers from chord shapes. This is probably more used and useful. with the D chord each finger can be removed to make an interesting variation. Many chords in the first part of the fingerboard will allow you to play these "short" chords and get away with it.

These short chords also often form the basis of a riff or a song hook that you can work around into a song. Try this exercise with all the main chords and see what you can find.

Once you have played around with this exercise mix it up with adding fingers to make you own chord sequence up.
