Using Chord Shapes to Find Lead Lines

Lead guitar can seem very difficult at first, but there are several simple things you can do to really make it easy. In this lesson, Bradford teaches how you can easily identify melodic lead guitar parts using common chord shapes. You’ll need to know the basic barre chord shapes in order to put this into practice. If you’re new to barre chords, check out our lesson on them here.

We also have several lessons that use these types of chord shapes, including the D shape and the F shape.
