You have just learned how you can play any I, IV, V song, in ANY key that exists - in 2 different ways: when the I chord has a 5th-string root, and when the I chord has a 6th-string root.

Why would you choose one configuration over the other?

The quality of the chord sound is different, when placed in different spots on the neck. This opens up options for you to vary the mood and tone of a chord, when placed in context within a song.

The ease and convenience of some placements of the ‘L’ on the guitar neck will help determine which is the best starting point for you.

You’ve also learned how to locate notes on the neck of the guitar, and about the important concepts of whole-steps and half-steps, sharps and flats.

This will make our upcoming tutorials on scales and chords much easier for you to understand!
