There are voicings that piano players can get that guitarists do not have the physical capability to play. There aren't enough fingers or strings to go around. However, when I was experimenting with how to get keyboard voicings, I tried playing the guitar like a piano - literally. It opened my mind to getting lush voicings and great rhythms within chords.

This lesson is a "bonus" if you will. It's not a progressive lesson within this series, but it should give you an idea of how I like to approach chord voicings. I'm not afraid to put both hands over the fretboard at a show and get the chords I want.

I will give you a simple exercise using a simple barred D chord and another 1st inversion D Chord. Then, I'll play around in D using other voicings and some of the tapping and thumping ideas from earlier. Play around with it and have fun. Entertain yourself and then others!
