Hi Robert,
Thanks for your appreciation of my lesson.
I would say that he chord shapes in these lessons are the conventional and most popular ones. All the chord shapes I've shown are easy to play. I've tried them all out on my guitar and i've excluded any difficult ones. I've also been experimenting to see which is the best key to finger-pick a melody while accompanying it with alternating bass notes. I find it best to do this using open chords in the key of C Major or A minor. I play the chords without using the little finger, so I can keep it free to play the melody. When I've learned to play the tune I can transpose it to any desired key, using a capodastra. I've been trying to write a lesson on how to do this but couldn't get "composer" to work properly.
Best regards,
Rhys.

Hi again Robert,
Your message has prompted me to add another page listing the most common chords in each key. I think those learning to play any instrument (or just learning about music) will find this useful.
