Re: Blackstreet "No Diggity" Cover

Super Good Job, bgd!! Loved your singing and playing. Could you do be a big favor and tell me the chords you were playing? I'm trying to expand my ability to play barre chords, and I don't know very many beyond those on the first 3 or 4 frets. Thanks!!

OK, but why? What's the benefit or advantage to playing things as barre chords?

More musical options => better player. smile


Plus if you like percussive left hand muting (as I do) it's much easier with barre chords.

I like the sound of that, BGD.  I agrre with barre chords, but don't take the time to learn them.  My bad.

Bgd nice tune!,you sound a little like a speedee Reggie Watts. I use most of those chords when I play blues tunes,like an unpluged version of Crossroads and Malted Milk etc.

If you know 3 you can use them all over the neck not just the first 3 frets example :
your standard E Bar chord shape for F = 133211, by moving it fret for fret down the neck you are playing that chord, F F# G G# A and so on, or for an easy way just play the first and 3rd fingers on E and A string. this will work up and down the neck and are called Root 5th Bar chords, they work best on strings 4,5,and6
I found this FREE PDF down load of Barre chords http://www.guitar-skill-builder.com/Bar … Chart.html
Ok and to answer your question of why? Well once you migrate out of folk,, and even w/ in it, and with your Beatles, conservation of movement and,  quite frankly,, the other name for them is POWER CHORDS. You can get much more thump out of them, palm muting is easier, and shifting between chords is quicker.  EX going from C D E isn’t that hard open but lacks a certain growl. If you play them as a 2 or 3 finger power chord, you’re just sliding the fingers right up the neck in a smooth progression and able to swap back and forth quickly.  Best example I can think of that is not a metal song (as it was written LOLLOL  wink ) would be most of the very popular stuff by THE KINKS. All day and all night and You really got me ( which have been covered by Van Halen and heavier groups) here listen and watch how they are played by everyones favorite Justin guitar.  So here ya are http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5V4uO2H5Sc  and  http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=en … rBBf7OogtU

Re: Blackstreet "No Diggity" Cover

Thanks, Beamer. I really got a lot of great information from your answer! I see guitar players using these barre chords all the time, and I never understood why. I have been practicing "Creep" by Radiohead and it's defintely easier to play using power chords.

Once again your so welcome! Iit makes me feel good to know that while I have a huge black hole of theory knowledge,, the knowledge that I do know, is solid and has been of help to you. 
Do you play an electric or just the acoustic?  Power chords truely "come alive" on an electric.

Re: Blackstreet "No Diggity" Cover

I think, that is a great piece of advice. If you already know a song in the first position, you don't have to relearn it, but it's a great way of prcticing those bar chords. Without bar chords, your guitar neck is too limmited.
Not so much your major chords, they are easy enough to play but the minor, major 7ths and minor 7ths. Also The patern of a chord progression can be used in any key.

If you are using a chop rhythm, barre chords make it easier to mute all strings at the same time.

Re: Blackstreet "No Diggity" Cover

Why is it listed on the album as No Diggity then? Were they trying to be clever?
