Below is the lesson for “2 Chord Jam (no. 2)” by Rock Class 101.
Develop your groove playing by learning this bluesy, 2 chord jam. That’s right, this song uses only 2 chords! If you’ve watched the performance, and you’ve not studied music theory, you may be scratching your head thinking that I played many different chord shapes.
But we have to hit pause, and we have to separate chord from shape. The fact is, a chord and a shape are two different things. For example, if you make a G chord and move the shape up a whole step, it now becomes an A chord.
So if that blew your mind, check out this lesson for a detailed explanation of how it works. And if you want to dive deeper, jump into our music theory course. So backtracking to this song, there are only two chords that are played using different shapes throughout the neck.
