Blues Guitar Chord progressions - D minor

Dan Denley has again kindly provided another video guitar lesson for my Blog readers. Dan has a whole bunch of fantastic guitar learning programs, including AmazingGuitarSecrets, BluesGuitar Secrets, AcousticGuitarSecrets and LeadGuitarSecrets and is always working to improve and upgrade them, as well as periodically developing new lessons covering yet another area of guitar music.

This lesson is taken from DVD 5 (Blues Guitar Progressions) of his Ultimate Guide to Chords course, a fully comprehensive learning program which gets you to understand the REASONS for playing particular chord patterns, or why a particular scale is suited for playing lead over a chord sequence. For me, this course bridges the gap between theory and practice which has always been my difficulty. The split videos ( showing both fretting and chording hands close-up ), along with the audio samples and tabs for each lesson, and the textual instruction from the manuals really bring it all together in a manner which is relevant to how you play guitar in the REAL world.

This mini-lesson is a short extract from Ultimate Guide to Chords showing how you can transform certain chord patterns just by changing tempo, and slightly adjusting the format of the dominant key - in this example he slows down a Dm7 chord set, switching the Dm7 for a Dm9, producing a really nice minor blues sequence.

Once again the video is split to show both the picking and the chording hands simultaneously in close-up.

I am sure you will find this lesson useful, and it should give you just a taster of what is available from the course:
