Just because the music calls for a certain chord doesn’t mean that you have to play it the way the chord chart tells you to, all the time, without having some fun with it.
There are all sorts of simple tricks you can apply to your playing that can make it a bit more interesting and fun, too.
Here is a video demonstration of what I like to do with two of the simpler chords: C and G. (More to follow – stay tuned.)
Remember – jazzing up your playing with tricks and scales are fun, but don’t forget that the rhythm is key to sounding good and holding your listener’s attention.
Let me know how you do with this. Have fun.
