Easy Acoustic Guitar Songs

Discover some easy acoustic guitar songs. The acoustic guitar has a sound that you can’t get from an electric guitar.

You can hear acoustic guitar in many rock songs like The Who’s “Behind Blue Eyes” and The Eagles use them in just about all their songs.

This is one reason why many players use acoustic guitars in the studio.

Many of the acoustics nowadays have transducer pick-ups under the saddle, making them easier to use live instead of using a microphone to amplify them.

Although some players still prefer to mike them than to use the electronic pick-up for tone reasons.

Horse with No Name

Writer – Dewey Bunnell – Group – America

This song was recorded using an odd-ball tuning which we won’t use

These chords will be close enough so you won’t have to retune your guitar

The reason the Dmaj6/9 chord is different from the D6/9 is the Dmaj6/9 has a major 7th in it. The C sharp on the 5th string is the major 7th.

Any time a chord has a major 7th in it. The name of the chord will always have a maj in its name no matter what else is in the chord.

A major 7th is one half step or one fret back from the octave of the root.

Normally you don’t put the major 7th before the root but that’s music theory there’s always exceptions.

The 6 is the open B string and the 9 is the open E string.

This is really one of the easy acoustic guitar songs you will run across.

Content Layouts

Joomla! provides plenty of flexibility when displaying your Web content. Whether you are using Joomla! for a blog site, news or a Web site for a company, you’ll find one or more content styles to showcase your information. You can also change the style of content dynamically depending on your preferences. Joomla! calls how a page is laid out a layout. Use the guide below to understand which layouts are available and how you might use them.

Content

Joomla! makes it extremely easy to add and display content. All content is placed where your mainbody tag in your template is located. There are three main types of layouts available in Joomla! and all of them can be customised via parameters. The display and parameters are set in the Menu Item used to display the content your working on. You create these layouts by creating a Menu Item and choosing how you want the content to display.

Blog Layout

Blog layout will show a listing of all Articles of the selected blog type (Section or Category) in the mainbody position of your template. It will give you the standard title, and Intro of each Article in that particular Category and/or Section. You can customise this layout via the use of the Preferences and Parameters, (See Article Parameters) this is done from the Menu not the Section Manager!

Blog Archive Layout

A Blog Archive layout will give you a similar output of Articles as the normal Blog Display but will add, at the top, two drop down lists for month and year plus a search button to allow Users to search for all Archived Articles from a specific month and year.

List Layout

Table layout will simply give you a tabular list of all the titles in that particular Section or Category. No Intro text will be displayed just the titles. You can set how many titles will be displayed in this table by Parameters. The table layout will also provide a filter Section so that Users can reorder, filter, and set how many titles are listed on a single page (up to 50)

Wrapper

Wrappers allow you to place stand alone applications and Third Party Web sites inside your Joomla! site. The content within a Wrapper appears within the primary content area defined by the “mainbody” tag and allows you to display their content as a part of your own site. A Wrapper will place an IFRAME into the content Section of your Web site and wrap your standard template navigation around it so it appears in the same way an Article would.

Content Parameters

The parameters for each layout type can be found on the right hand side of the editor boxes in the Menu Item configuration screen. The parameters available depend largely on what kind of layout you are configuring.

12 Bar Blues Chord Progression – Blues Basics

The 12 bar blues chord progression is the back bone of the blues besides being the basis for many pop and country songs.

This is where Eric Clapton, BB King and every other Blues player started and still use this progression for a lot of their songs.

This music used to be called Rhythm and Blues when the Sax and Piano were the lead instruments which is still one of the Blues styles today. You just don’t hear that term much anymore. It got shortened to Blues

The Rolling Stones early albums have many rhythm and blues tracks on them with blues chord progressions.

12 Bar Blues Basics

The blues uses the three major chords from the major scale. The I, IV and V chords. In C the chords would be C, F and G.

F♯ and G♭ are the same pitch just a different key for writing music.

12 Bar Blues in A

This is a fairly simple blues chord progression using 9th chords for the IV and V chords

This could also be done with just plain major chords or with all 7th chords which is what you will probably see in most sheet music for blues songs

These progressions can get quite complicated when using chord substitution.

For right now you just need to understand the basic progression because all the other versions are still based on this simple progression.

This is referred to as a quick change blues progression because of the change to the IV chord in measure 2. A lot of the time the I chords plays the 1st 4 measures

Also the A7 on measure 4 is kind of an out of date sound played this way that you don’t hear too often anymore. It tells you your about to change chords.

Here are the chords. I couldn’t make the staff big enough so you could see the chords diagrams clearly

12 bar blues in the key of a

This is one of the blues guitar lessons that you have to understand before you go any further into blues progressions.

Here is a link for you to check out different blues albums by a variety of players.

Locrian sharp 2 Mode

Follow @learnguitarasap

The Locrian sharp 2 mode comes from the 6th note of the melodic minor scale. Remember the melodic minor scale is a major scale with a flatted 3rd. It just sounds hard to learn.

This mode isn’t limited to the minor flat 5 chord because this chord has other names it goes under.

The minor 7♯5 chord can also be called a minor 6th with a different root and a 9th chord without a root.

Here is an example the Am7♭5 can also be called the C minor 6th and the F9 no root.

All of these chords contain the same notes so you can substitute any one for the other.

This sample I’ll play the Locrian sharp 2 mode against an Am♭5 chord.

The A Locrian sharp two played against an A minor 7th flat 5 chord

I targeted the flatted fifth note because that’s what gives it its overall sound quality.

The Locrian ♯2 List

The Locrian ♯2 Formula

This one goes 1-2-♭3-4-♭5-♭6-♭7 as compared to the major scale.

This one would be easier to remember as a natural minor with a flatted 5th
