The Andy Stocks Method

Thanks for taking the time to watch the video and click on the link. I'm looking forward to growing this page out as I add more videos to the method.

 

So here is how the method works. By using one chord shape we can access all 12 major chords and all 12 minor chords.

 

Please see the chart as a reference to find all of these chords and make sure to watch the video to fully understand the method. The chart lists the fret numbers and chords of all of the major chords and all of the minor chords. Make sure you use either the major 'train track' or the minor 'train track' to get the desired chord by placing your 3 fingers on the fret listed for that chord. Major chords are listed with just their note name and minor chords have a 'm' after the note name.

 

Here is an example. If you want to play D major then you would look at the chart for D in the Major Chord column. We can see that it is listed at the 7th fret. Form the shape on the 7th fret on the D, G, and B strings because we are on the major 'train track'. Only play those 3 strings and you have D major.

 

If you want to play Dm then you would look at the chart for Dm in the Minor Chord column. We can see that it is listed in the 10th fret. Form the shape on the 10th fret on the G, B and E strings because we are on the minor 'train track'. Only play those 3 strings and you have D minor.
