About This Class


This lesson is for early stage intermediate guitarists, or guitarists of any skill level not familiar with this formula. This course builds upon the D-A-F formula to show you how to use partial chords to play I-IV-V progressions in any key.

This course builds upon the knowledge first introduced in the course : Guitar Lesson : The DAF Chord Trick : Learn to Play chords all over fretboard with one easy pattern.

You do not have to take that course before this one, although you may want to explore it for further context. Thes simple chord shapes are an effective way of playing chords in alternative positions on the fretboard quickly, and easily. If you don't know this trick, you will find it an invaluable tool to add to your jamming and songwriting toolbox!

Students should have basic knowledge of guitar chords, and at least some familiarity with Barre chords

By the end of this course, you will easily be able to identify how to play I-IV-V Chord progressions in any key using A shape, F shape, and D shape partial chords.
