Growth in Chord Vocabulary.

Hey all,
I am just wondering if anyone knows any sites that will show you like different kinds of chords besides regular minor and major chords, and show you chord progressions? I have found chord dictionaries where one can look up single chords, but I really need to learn what chords will fit with certain other chords. Like, when you are a beginner, you are taught like, G, C, D. Am, E, D...you know...waht chords work with that. Well, I am looking to expand deeply upon my current chord vocabulary and I want to know how to use these chords with other chords. Even a site that explains chord theory really well would be really helpful. Peace In and thanks.

One of the best printable pages of the Caged Chord forms for various chords(maj, min, m7, 7, 9, and 13).

That's potentially a great site - very straightforward, quick, easy to use.
However, there's mistakes, and some odd statements.
Typical internet fare, IOW - use wisely and with care! (NEVER rely on a single internet source for ANY knowledge.)

I've done quite a few lessons on my site, Steven, especially about what chords go nicely together.

The Key, Scale and related Chords

The Music Building

Those two should shed some light. You'll need to register ... keeps the spam robots out.

I think the most useful thing I ever learned was how to construct chords and where the different notes were that could be added to a knownchord grip. that way you can expand your knowledge quickly and efficiently, rather than feeling you are reinventing the wheel every time.

For example, there is only one note different between Em9 and E9:
Em9



E9



Find out what this note is and what it means to the chord. Experiment with moving the others around by semitones.

All good stuff.

Gm
C7/E
F

I love stuff like that. In the above going from Gm to C7/E requires moving only one finger to the new note = E which gives a neat ii_V_I progression.
