This workshop will provide an introduction to movable chord forms for the guitar. Attendees will explore and learn the shapes used in jazz, blues, pop and folk guitar accompaniment, which allow you to work in any key. These chord shapes also provide distinctive colors of tone and mood. Bring your guitar, be ready to play and explore. Michael will also teach one very simple way to notate these chord shapes.
