Mandolin Chords Guidebook 2 – Playing Songs
This eBook series will take you through the process of understanding and learning how to play mandolin chords. This is part 2 and is about playing chords with songs.
Although many people aren’t aware of it, a typical piece of music actually follows a certain set of “rules,” when it comes to which chords are used.
That is, not just any chords can be used- only certain chords are used. Some chords belong, and others don’t. As long as you know which chords “belong,” then you can create music that has a certain “unified” feel to it or play chords along songs effortlessly.
That’s a powerful thing! This knowledge is like a “secret code” that helps composers to compose, improvisers to improvise, and performers to perform. Finding out which chords “belong”, requires some knowledge of music theory. But do not worry! This book lists them for you and does not require any prior theory knowledge.
