EAR TRAINING: Chord Voicing Dilemmas Andrew for FREE lesson Handouts.This Video: August 17, 2012 | Search Videos by Title/Date.GO TO: Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question...Q: One thing that drives me crazy is how I can start inventing a chord progression, and I get the first few chords fine. But then, I hear the rest of how it should go in my head only to be lost when trying to find it on the guitar. Can you suggest a way to practice finding the chords I can hear in my head?Terry -- Baltimore, MD. USAA: I would certainly like to begin by saying that the problem you're going through is one that is very common. I can remember having trouble with this exact same area of trying to play harmonies -- both simple ones and complex ones. I could find chord voicings that I could hear in my head, but for the life of me could not discover physically on the guitar! So, in this video I'll be discussing a few ways that you can practice getting the chord sounds you hear in your head to come through correctly on the instrument. In the limited time available for making an online video lesson, I can only cover a few of the ways to tap into discovering the endless number of cool riffs floating around in your mind. I would like to leave you with a couple of very important tips. #1). Spend as much time as you can figuring out other peoples songs. It doesn't even matter what style or artist, or if you like them or not. Just learn song after song, after song. This will both introduce you to new ideas and help to train you to play what you hear in your head. #2). Learn chords -- and a lot of them! The more chords you learn the bigger your harmonic guitar vocabulary will be & trust me when I say -- that's a good thing!MY TWITTER FEED: WASSON - Personal Website: postings - w/FREE Guitar Handouts)____________________________________Visit our Creative Guitar Studio Zazzle page: Creative Guitar Studio Products Website: CLOUD: Listen to some of my songs.
