UPDATE : I just posted a video of yet ANOTHER song that uses this trick: "Small Town" by John Mellencamp. Check it out here: www.youtube.com/watch
Here's how to take your 3 favorite chords and turn them into something SPECIAL! So many songwriters and bands have employed the trick found here, and you can't really play a lot of famous tunes WITHOUT this technique. it's a MUST for your Bag of Tricks! It's not that it's hard - it's EASY but you wouldn't think to do this D-C-G Trick without someone showing you. So it's a quick way to sound pro, and to learn a handful of famous tunes in the process. This D-C-G Trick has been used by acoustic AND electric guitar players, both with fingerpicking and flatpicking. If you can play your basic D C and G chords these might even feel easier. But these modified chords have a different musical tone than the standard D, C, and G and that's the trick! **ALERT: there are a few times in the video when the acoustic guitar takes on a sweet distorted tone which was unintentional, but delightful.
