Cool Clean Chords
One of my favorite things to play on guitar are clean chords with some ringing open strings and a little chorus and reverb/delay. There really are a ton of chords you can come up with by just experimenting and learning what sounds good to you. In the following examples I started by using a progression in D minor and just changed a few notes here and there to get some cool voicings. If you compare these with playing the standard barre chords Dm C B flat you’ll hear a world of difference.
The last two examples are in the key of B minor. Most of these chords have many different names that could be used so I went with what seemed right to the key. I played each ex. using all right hand fingers and pulling on the strings as some jazz players do when comping. Try strumming with a pick or use other finger picking patterns to make things into your own. So turn off the distortion and listen to how great a good clean tone along with some awesome chords can sound. Sayonara!
