Hi this is Jeff Isbell on behalf of ExpertVillage.com.

Today we're going to look at moving chord shapes a little more. If it's true that you can move any open chord shape anywhere on the neck by barring it and just by knowing the various forms of E-A-D-G-C, you can make any chord anywhere on the neck, right?

For example, here's an E, well here's an E minor, okay well here's an F by moving it up a half step, then here's an F minor. The same thing I did on the E and the E minor. So here's an A, here's how I change it to an A major 7, okay, so here's a C and here's a C major 7. It always works, it doesn't matter if I want a C sharp major 7, it's just the same position, you just have to know what note you're playing right here. Now let's say you're trying to work out an arrangement of misty.

Well the first chord is E flat major 7, and here's one version, that's just like a D major 7, only it's up one fret or a half step. E flat major 7, but that's the first chord of the song, but the first melody not for the song is way up here on the seventh fret. See it goes. Look at me. Look at me. Me, look at me. Look at me. This is not a singing course. Look at me.

So anyway, the first note is way up here. What to do? I could stretch my pinky, but it takes a long time to learn how to do that, a better option is to find E flat major 7, closer to the note I want to play, well remember that A major 7 that we just looked at, well if I bar it and slide it up until my root note is E flat, I've got an E flat major 7 in a much closer position than I did before. As I work through the arrangement, I can find lots of alternate version chords, right up here where the melody lives.
