Here’s the first in a series I’ll be going through… Static Chord Movements #1! The idea of this series is how to create movement within a chord without changing the chord. This one will be going through “Country” and “Motown” type movements, essentially adding triads on top of the chord.

This one is the “riff-y-est” of them all and I use some hybrid picking to achieve some of these. I go through everything off of 6th string barre chords, so it should be easy to move to any chord! Dig.
