E Form Components & Mods
For each of the 5 chords we will move [CAGED], we learn [memorize] the chord components within each.
We already have the low strings [R-5-R]. We now fill in the rest…3-5-R.
I’ve include the extra fret ‘behind the nut’, because once onto the board, and it helps us build more voicings, plus can be used when playing melodic arpeggios.
Once we know the components, we can use formulas to modify the chord – build other types.
It’s not infinite, the changes we can make, yet there are a whole lot of them. Some common ones follow.
