Description

Again, the open chords positions are typically regarded as the easiest and most basic patterns to use in order to play those chords. Each one of those chord shapes is a way of isolating only the 1st, 3rd, and 5th scale degrees from their respective scales. The A major chord shape is one particular way of isolating only the 1st, 3rd, and 5th scale degrees of the A major scale. So only those notes ring out and therefore it results in an A major chord sounding.


Likewise, all of the chord shapes we learn to play on the guitar are ways of isolating only the appropriate chord tones from the appropriate scale.


The B major chord shape is a way of isolating only the 1st, 3rd, and 5th scale degrees of the B major scale.

The C major chord shape is a way of isolating only the 1st, 3rd, and 5th scale degrees of the C major scale.

The D major chord shape is a way of isolating only the 1st, 3rd, and 5th scale degrees of the D major scale.

The E major chord shape is a way of isolating only the 1st, 3rd, and 5th scale degrees of the E major scale.

And so on.
