Mike, I liked your little demo on Aug/Dim chords. One of my weaknesses as a plaeyr is learning and implementing these chords. Could you do an expanded version with the tab? That would be great. I know I am a little lazy and I will spend the next few days going back over what I have in books but that is why I subscribe to GT , you guys streamline some stuff.

Cool Joe, thanks for the suggestion - I'll look into getting an expanded version into production.

In the meantime, check out this tutorial - and specifically, the sections pertaining to Augmented and Diminished:

Mike's channel lesson was a great example of using those chords!

Here are a couple of other tutorials that show diminished & augmented chords & how to use them.

Extended Harmony Chords 1

Soulful R&B 1

Also, one of the best ways to learn & incorporate new chords is to find songs that use them so you can see how they work in actual music & build your repertoire at the same time. With that in mind, check out these tunes that use those chord.
