Just finished (minus small cosmetics) my first CBG. It is three string, tuned to open E. I chose open E because I have fooled around with bass guitar for a couple years and open E seems easier to play.
Problem I'm having is how to play minor chords. I realize this is because of my lack of knowledge about the topic in general, but I was hoping someone could explain this to me. I also play left handed.
So for example, Who'll stop the rain by CCR starts with G, F, Em. I have been fretting the high E string at the third fret, but I'm not sure this is correct. Or, should I just play the root like with the bass?
i was thinking of making a group for it, but the link is gone, maybe we're all grouped out ?
There's a group for that...
yes there are 146 groups, but amazingly there does not appear to be one for discussing the intricacies of harmony....
perhaps it is not as relevant...
Gave it a few days and can't grasp the stacked minor thing, especially the part about raising the other third. I'm a "just lower the third" kind of guy. I wish I would've studied more when I was a lad, but I always like to hear you talk about theory PK.
