- The next exercise we're going to look at here…with these three chord shapes…will be based out of the key of D.…We looked at G's…and so the next sort of important way, I think…to use these is to learn how to see this…out of the key of D.…And again, these are ways I look at the fingerboard,…and basic building blocks of how to approach…playing up and down the fretboard…and so this exercise, I'll talk through it first…and then I'll demonstrate the whole thing in time.…So the first bar.…
And the reason I chose these notes…again, they're sort of all based out of…I showed you how the major scales can apply to these shapes.…So it's just three simple musical ideas…based out of those shapes.…But again, it's more about putting…them all together in time.…And that builds the technique and how to use them.…So, here's the first measure.…And the next one moves up to the A shape.…
Right out of that scale form.…And then the next shape up here,…this F shape again,…now we're moving it way up here for the D.…For the D, there's your high D on the 10th fret…
