March 23, 2013 | 3-note Chords. Drink 'em up!
Better range and timbre, more versatility in transposing up and down the fingerboard, and of course, a more pragmatic base for chord melody playing. Terrific for other 5th tuned instruments including mandola, mandocello, and 5-string mandolins, too.
This is part of our continual pitch for learning sets of 3-note chords on our often shrill instrument. Stick to the lower three strings and build your comping vocabulary of them leaving your E strings for melody and the "color commentary" of chord extensions, #9, b13, #11, etc.
To help you drink these in? A 3-note chord mug, of course!
Start building your own personal catalog with these grips, and juice them with a little caffeine.
