Finding Chord Voicings with “The Shape,” Part 1
 
In this lesson, Stevie talks about a method for finding chord voicings anywhere on the neck, using what he calls “the shape.” Stevie starts by showing you “the shape” in G, C, E, and D chords: the shape created by your fingers in a chord where the root (1) and third (3) are on adjacent strings. Then he shows you how to find intervals on the guitar from the shape using the major scale, showing you a handy way to play the major scale that you can move anywhere the neck and how to find intervals as they relate to the root and the third (“the shape”).
