thats cool, it doesnt seem as difficult as it originally seemed, diminished chords are usually just 003221 and augmented 002323 and its just a case of moving the shape up and down the fretboard ( i think ).
i dont really undersatnd what james is saying cause i dont know about roots and complicated stuff like that but hopefully i begin to understand the whole theory of music in time :) thanks...
The 002323 <-is a Diminished chord.
The 003221 >-is a Augmented chord.
You had them backwrds.
Most chords are all movable down and up the fretboard.
But some are not!
The chords obove are called (Melody Chords)
You also have (Inside chord) (Rhythm Chords) (Bottom 4
string chords) (Power chords) (Partial Bar chords ect ect.
A root note can be used to find your chords plus tell,
you what key your playing in.
To be a complete guitarest i mean not just be able to,
play simple power chords.
You should know all of the chord voicings or octaves,
of the chords.Plus know the notes on your guitar!
Learning 1 of each chord voicing=first position of each,
chord would be a good way to start out plus just learn,
your Major chords first then your minor chords second.
Plus take your time don't try to learn them all at once.
The main thing is ask alot of Questions when first ,
starting out !If you don't under-stand something don't,
be afraid to ask other guitar players.
This is very important in becoming a good guitarest.
I do recemend a guitar teacher when first starting out,
but you can learn alot right here on guitar-tricks!
P:S Ask lots of questions about things you don't understand,
plus practice and read alot but take your time. being,
a good guitarest takes time plus if you really want learn,
fast there's no fast way of learning you have to walk,
before you run.Most impotant have fun!
