Welcome to the Chords Section for Advanced Students!
As you know from the chords section for beginner students, chords are one of the basic buildings blocks of music. Once you are comfortable with the chords you learned in the beginner chords section and intermediate chords section, then you are ready for more advanced chords!
In this section, you will be learning to form chords with more than four notes, such as major 9th chords, major 11th chords and major 13th chords. You will also learn about suspended 2 chords, suspended 4 chords, 6ths chords, diminished chords and augmented chords. Don't let these names intimidate you, they are all actually pretty straight forward to understand and construct! Use these new chords to add new and exciting flavors to your music!
