In this brand new installment of This is Why You Suck at Guitar, Uncle Ben Eller here is gonna show you all an easy trick you can use to find out what chords to use in ANY key, major OR minor, with absolutely NO theory required! It all revolves around a simple pattern i discovered years ago that will reveal the 3 major chords, the 3 minor chords, and the 1 smelly diminished chord that fit into every key. You can use this trick for any style of music, whether it be acoustic or electric, jazz, blues, country, western, rock, metal, whatever, It always works! We are going to cover power chords, major chords, minor chords, diminished chords, Major 7 (M7), minor 7 (m7), dominant 7 (7) and m7b5 (or half diminished) chords too! This is definitely going to help you become a better player, no matter if you’re a beginner or an advanced player. Is this as good as learning extremely deep and detailed music theory? Absolutely not. But is it supremely easy and useful? It absolutely is!!!! Good luck with this, i don’t think you’ll have any trouble at all getting this down and playing all the right diatonic chords in any key, in any style of music. Playing my PRS SE acoustic with the amazing ToneWood Amp on the back for some subtle reverb. So lovely.
