I’m developing a new training method that could make chord practice much easier. It’s an online tool where you enter the chords you already know (or are working on). And the tool tells you all the songs that use those exact same chords.
If you’re working on chords A, B, and C – you can begin playing all those songs that use (and only use) ABC, AB, AC, BC, A, B, and C.
When you’re ready to tackle new material, the tool recommends what chord to learn next (based on the chords you already know). Learning chord D, for example, will unlock the most new songs in the database. So now you can practice songs that use ABCD, ABD, ACD, BCD, AD, BD, CD, AB, AC, BC, A, B, C, D.
This means that at any given time, you’re only “practicing” 1 new chord. All the others are already in your comfort zone.
Right now, the tool is free. And I’m opening it up for beta testing so I can collect feedback from real guitarists (beginners and veterans alike).
