How To Create Your Own Guitar Chords

This guitar lesson will show you how to create your own guitar chords, using nothing more than a scale and open chords you already know. We’re using the key of G, so the open chords are G, C, D and Em, Am and Bm. The relative minor scale is E minor, so we’ll use the E minor diatonic scale.

Basically, all we’re doing here is adding other notes from the scale to the chords we’re using, in order to create new variations that sound cool, and that can be used for song writing, jamming or improvising.
