Chord Construction - 3 Note Chords - Part 1 - This lesson will give you a basic understanding of how all 3 note chords are constructed, and how to apply that theory to the neck of the bass. This will include major, minor, augmented, diminished, sus2 and sus4 chords.
Once you understand the basic concept of what chord
formulas are and how to spell different 3 note chords, your next
step is to use this information to decode some of the chord forms
that you already know. Then you can use your knowledge of music
theory to alter them into other chord types. On the bass, chords most often take the form of arpeggios. An arpeggio is just the notes of a chord played individually.
Understanding this lesson is going to be very difficult if you are not familiar with the names
of the notes on the neck of the bass. So if this is a weak
point for you ....STUDY THEM. Knowing the names of the notes on
the neck of the bass is a prerequisite to being able to apply
Be sure and check out the Arpeggios section for some of the basic arpeggios shapes that will be used in this lesson.
