VideoAbout the Lessons

1. Introduction If you start a chord on an unmarked chorus and play a small box, the result will be a minor chord. In this video, Steve also demonstrates how to play a minor major 7th chord and how to locate the harmonic minor scale.
2. Adding Suffixes to Minor Chords This video reviews what we learned in Video 1. Steve plays, one after another, the E minor Major 7th chord (Em Maj7), the E minor 7th chord (Em7), the E minor 6th chord (Em6), and finally the E minor chord (Em). He also tells in what type of music you are likely to hear each.
3. Review & Sunshine First Steve plays through the old familiar tune, "You Are My Sunshine,"using the "Utah" shape for the D, G, and A chords.
4. Adding Rich Chords First Steve played through the tune using the DMaj7, the GMaj7, and AMaj7 chords, Then he played through the tune using 6th chords. Finally (and this was my favorite), he used a combination of Major 7th and 6th chords.
5. Using Dominant 7th Chords We get a bluesy sound when the dominant 7th chord is added.
