I’m just playing some sort of an F-sharp minor, so what I’m doing for this chord I’m placing my index finger on the 7th fret all across the string and then I got my middle finger on the 9th fret of the 5th string in ring finger on the 9th fret of the 3rd string pinky finger is on the 9th fret of a second but sometimes I’ll remove it of course and I put it in other strings I play with it and then from there I go into this one, basically an E major 7 it’s this chord I mean you probably know this chord and you know the A major if you move it up.

So what I do is I play these three notes with my ring and then put the fret for that, I have my ring finger on the 7th fret of the 5th. The riff, my index finger design for the 5th ring finger on this 9th fret of the 4th, 3rd, 2nd and the pinky is on the 11th for the 1st then from there I’m going to this one which is an inversion over an E flat minor 7 or a D sharp minor 7, how you want to call it so for this one basically I have my middle finger on the 13th fret of the 5th string my ring finger on the 13 fret of the 4th index finger on the 11th fret of the 9th fret of the 3rd string and pinky finger on the 14th of the 2nd.

From there we go to this one it’s basically an E flat alter so what I do is I have my index finger on the 11th fret of the 6th string middle finger and 11th for the 4th, I’m not playing the 5th so I’m muting with the index finger and then I have my ring finger on the 12th fret of the 3rd and pinky finger on the 12th fret of the second take this out for this it’s the same as the first one but two frets up so it’s the same position but we just have the middle on the 11th fret this one is on the 9 the ring fingers on the 11 on the 3rd and the pinkie on the and then finish it up with this so for this is the G sharp minor so for that the way it smoother I just do it like this of course but you could totally stretch.

I’m doing it because it’s easier to make fingers and do it like this if it’s too much of a stretch so for what I’m doing got the 6th fret of the 5th and 4th string and then with the index I’m playing the 4th fret, now let’s get more into the specifics. The chords that I’m playing now for the first chord, I’ll down the pinky on the nine of the first and then I go into this one I play it four times and from there what I like to do is put my pinky in there and just do one are you want to with the pinky and then three without a pinky for with the pinky fine with the pinky right so the melody that’s happening here 1, 2, 3, 4, and then I come down here and I slide it down. Now it’s important that you listen to and another thing that I like to do here is I like to tell a different inversion in between the E major 7 and the next chords I like to do the same here before this one so for that 13th fret of the 4th and 3rd, 12th fret of the 2nd and 14th fret of the 1st. Now you can play this with a little bit more beautiful if you want now it really depends I mean you should definitely try to play it slow at first because it’s really hard.
