Sorry, this video is unavailable because the site that hosted the video is shut down. Sorry for the trouble.
I have tons of great lessons at Master Guitar Academy. Join me there - it's where you can learn with me every week. That's also where all my DVDs and Premium Downloads are.

Why not support the free lessons? They took me hundreds of hours to make. You can help keep them coming by providing a donation.

Slowing down songs is another great way to learn from records and your song collection. I use Song Surgeon, which works really well for this. Check it out.

Guitar Lesson Overview

Here are some inversions of Dominant 7 chords I often use. The key here is E. The chords in the video are in order: E7, E7, E7, E9, E13, E7, E9, E7.
The notes of the E7 chords are: E, G#, B, D.
The order of these notes can be rearranged - that's why we call them inversions. Look at the 3rd E7 in the video. The notes are here G#, B, D, E - see how the first note is now G# instead of E? This is an example of a chord inversion. Hope this helps.

The other chords shown are all part of the E7 family. Sometimes I play E9 or E13, but these too belong to the family of Dominant 7 chords, in the key of E.

Learning guitar at your own pace

I want to tell you about the guitar lesson web site JamPlay. They have kindly offered a special 7 Day Free trial to visitors of Dolphinstreet.com. I have reviewed their site, and I have to say it is VERY impressive.

There are lots of teachers and many different areas to learn from. It is well organized, and you can learn songs, techniques, etc - very complete website for learning. After 7 days, you will pay a monthly subscription continue. For the 7 trial, you don't have to give out your credit card number.

Go check it out and see what you think. Since it is completely free for 7 days, you really should test it out. You have nothing to lose. If you are interested in learning guitar online, you would be silly not to take advantage of this. If you do decide to sign up, I receive a little bonus, so this way you help support dolphinstreet as well!

» JamPlay - Dolphinstreet special 7 day trial - use this code: dstrial.

Guitar Pro

I use Guitar Pro for most of my video lessons. It is a great product that will not only show you the notes in both TAB and standard notation, you will also HEAR them being played at the same you see them. Very helpful for learning! Click the link below to try the free demo.

Order Guitar Pro 6, and also get our guitar-playing method for free.

Video Clips

I have lots of gear demos too on this site. Go and take a look at some of my Guitar Videos for some examples of gear I use or have used.
