Overview
Here's a cool chord trick that incorporates open strings and octaves! You can use it for “licks” or “hooks” of songs and/or a way to outline chords!

In this video I talk about it being best over the keys of E, A, B but it works for B, F#... all sorts of keys! The E Major scale example I played through:
E – F#m – G#m – A – B – C#m – D#dim

The E Major Chord example:
E – F# - G# (G# is the 3rd of our E Major)

The E Minor Chord example:
E – F# - G (G is the 3rd of our E Minor)

The B Chord example:
B – C# - D#
