Ready to make that leap from basic open chords to flying around the neck and playing professional backup? Then this is the lesson you want. We start off with a review of the principles of good backup playing (things like using the "Y Position", when to play rolls, and muting the chords), and then move into using the three classic movable positions of Bar, D and F. These are the must-have chord shapes to move around the fingerboard and transpose into different keys. You'll get to practice each position separately, with complete backup exercises for Bar, D and F shapes, and then we'll mix them all together for full scale backup playing. We also go over transposing up to the key of A, and mixing in the forward-reverse roll as well. This is a monster lesson, and if you are wanting to get to and play in jams more (which you should be!), then knowing how to play backup is critically important. Get started today with real pro backup playing...

    This is a great starting place. I have spent over a week just on what this video contains. Priceless!
