Embellishments for the Chords & Rhythms You Already Know
Embellishing open position chords simply by lifting, shifting, or adding a finger can open up a whole new world of rich sonic treasures that sound fresh, contemporary, and unique to your style of playing.
Robbie Calvo’s Chord Moves & Grooves reveals the simple, yet very effective techniques that make the real difference between the songs you are just strumming along to and the way those songs are actually being played on the radio by your favorite artists and singer-songwriters.
”In Chord Moves & Grooves, I’ll show you a variety of chord moves for each of the basic major and minor open position chord shapes. We’ll then string these embellished chords and moves together to create a virtually unlimited palette of grooves and progressions.
Use these moves and grooves to enhance cover tunes you play, or better yet, use them to write your own original songs -- either way, I promise -- you’ll be creatively inspired!”
Robbie kicks off the course with a series of lessons focused on key concepts, approaches, and techniques: Why You Need This Course, Maximize the Grooves, Re-Harmonization, PDF Diagrams & Charts, Building Dexterity, Open Position Chords, and Using a Capo.
In the Major Moves & Grooves section, Robbie demonstrates and then breaks down 18 major chord moves and grooves that will greatly expand your major palette of chord and rhythm options. You will work through variations and approaches for A major, B major, C major, D major, F major, and G major chords. Each of the 18 studies feature a performance and a breakdown lesson video.
”If you are a singer/songwriter, this course is going to open up cool new ideas to inspire and motivate you towards writing fresh chord progressions, melodies and ultimately the next favorite song. If you accompany an artist, play in a band or record music with the guitar, this course will give you the additional flavors and spice needed to bring a classic song to life or an abundance of options for layering guitar parts in the studio.”
In the Minor Moves & Grooves section, Robbie demonstrates and then breaks down 6 minor chord moves and grooves that likewise will greatly expand your minor palette of chord and rhythm options. You will work through variations and approaches for A minor, B minor, C minor, D minor, and E minor chords. Each of the 6 studies features a performance and a breakdown lesson video.
"For every example in this course, I’ve provided the groove track and the groove and guitar part as separate audio files. Why not try each of the chord moves that you like, with some of the other groove tracks. This is going to change the feel and tempo of those ideas…you may even find that the fresh rhythmic approach inspires you to play the ideas differently too!”
These 24 performance studies and breakdowns will provide you with a pro-level vocabulary of chord moves and options. Use them to compose your own songs or apply them with cover tunes. Either way, the results will be ear-opening!
Robbie will explain and demonstrate all of the key concepts and approaches along the way. Robbie includes PDF chord diagrams for each example and you’ll get standard notation and tabs for all of the key examples. Plus, all of the rhythm tracks are also included for you to work with on your own. In addition, you’ll be able to loop or slow down any of the videos so that you can work with the lessons at your own pace.
