PAIR THE CHORDS IN A KEY WITH THE PENTATONIC SCALES

“Learn Now”

Understanding the SWS

The intermediate SWS takes you around the cycle of 4th (moving anti-clockwise) as well as the cycle of 5th (moving clockwise).

As it does so, you’ll find all chords that belong to each key.

The inner circle of chords displays the parallel minor chords (II, VI and III), the outer circle displays the major chords (IV, I and V).

To crack the fretboard code, you must organize all chords in each area of the neck, using chord I as your starting point.

The intermediate SWS can help you with this.

Start by selecting a key by clicking a chord in the outer circle. Next, choose one of the shapes: E, A, D, G or C to find the I chord.

You can now see all barre chord shapes as well as the minor and major pentatonic scales in your desired key and shape.

To master the guitar, you must be able to play all barre chords and pentatonic scales in all keys and five positions.
