Most musical chords consist of three tones; for instance, the C major chord contains the tones C, E and G.
An altered chord, like E7#9, contains the 1st, 4th, flat 7th and sharp 9th notes from its scale – adding tension and drama to your tune! This can add visual intrigue.
Figured bass notation provides musicians with instructions for playing on any given bass guitar fret. Every bass chord has a distinct sound, necessitating appropriate finger placement to produce its desired result.
Though most bassists opt for single note lines, chords can add variety and texture to your songs. Here are movable bass chord shapes to help expand your repertoire.
Blue Note Records has honored Norah Jones’ landmark album for two decades with a Super Deluxe Edition that contains both its remastered original album as well as 22 never-before-heard tracks – from original demos she submitted to Blue Note and First Session demos, to an unheard rendition of Seven Years from The Allaire Sessions – released over time.
