  • 9/6/2019 update: DOWNLOAD THE D-C-G Trick book here ! www.song-bike.com
    Full of great songs, riffs, exercises, TAB, photos, Pro Tips and 30 audio examples!
    This is a GREAT book and I'm really proud of it. Good for beginners and intermediate guitarists alike. You can download it and print out the pages if you prefer a hard copy.
    And I made a NEW D-C-G Trick video to go along with the book and you can see it here: www.song-bike.com. I have LOTS of videos at www.song-bike.com available to members - please check it out !! And please subscribe to my RU-clip channel!
    UPDATE : I just posted a video of yet ANOTHER song that uses this trick: "Small Town" by John Mellencamp. Check it out here: ru-clip.com/video/EKGVRA6nZss/video.html

    Here's how to take your 3 favorite chords and turn them into something SPECIAL! So many songwriters and bands have employed the trick found here, and you can't really play a lot of famous tunes WITHOUT this technique. it's a MUST for your Bag of Tricks! It's not that it's hard - it's EASY but you wouldn't think to do this D-C-G Trick without someone showing you. So it's a quick way to sound pro, and to learn a handful of famous tunes in the process. This D-C-G Trick has been used by acoustic AND electric guitar players, both with fingerpicking and flatpicking. If you can play your basic D C and G chords these might even feel easier. But these modified chords have a different musical tone than the standard D, C, and G and that's the trick! **ALERT: there are a few times in the video when the acoustic guitar takes on a sweet distorted tone which was unintentional, but delightful. Please don't email me to let me know, ok ? Thanks.

    Great lesson Jonathan! I like how you take things slow and easy with your fingering demos. It’s nice to be able to play some classics right away. Great trick!

    I don't even play a musical instrument or know how to read music but I have just subscribed you your channel because it is by far the very best explanation of chord structure that I have ever seen. Thank you for your brilliantly simple approach to breaking down and explaining how to play these chords - it almost makes me want to rush out to buy a guitar and I probably will one day.

    Jonathan, fantastic and motivating lesson which I will be diving into (as a beginner) and this might seem like a strange question but isn't this progression a sort of descending inversion of G major I,IV,V...?
    Also, does LZ "thank you" use this progerssion...? Also reminds me of can't find my way home by traffic

    I've not played in years but this is dynamite stuff..... I had a Book of Chord Voicing's that
    would give you 5-7 chords on top of the basics..... really more than 7 but you're reminding
    me of that book I owned. Very cool

    I'm not a musician whatsoever. Did blow into a trombone for a few months in high school several decades ago. Nothing good came out of that. But it was fascinating watching the music pour out of your fingers. Thank you for making this.

    I love this so much! Literally the song I’m learning right now [“Back Here” by BBMak] uses this exact same trick for this chord progression! Thanks for talking about it in greater detail! I love the more open sound this trick gives the chords. It’s like an embedded sus chord. I particularly love the Cadd9 too. Both the the 3-finger and 4-finger versions sound so lovely!

    @Song Bike - jkehew1. Jonathan, what model Martin are you using in this lesson? I bought a 1996 DM-6 & 1997 DM-12, which I'm going to be putting a lacquer gloss coats onto both this summer, simply because it makes them easier to clean plus I think they look better with a lacquer finish as opposed to Martin's cost saving production

    I'm Jonathan, you're so right. When we use that regulated time to move from chord to chord, simplifying it will keep you in time.... Thanks so much for a great lesson using these 3 major chords. It reminds me of ''Feeling Alright'' By Dave Mason, while with Traffic. A very popular song with just 2 chords throughout the entire song, used in both the versus & the choirs. [Chords used - A & D]....

    I guess I am lucky.
    I am 63, but I have been playing the guitar going way back to 1966, that is 53 to 54 years now.
    I have heard most of those D-C-G chord combinations in so many ways, from so many different bands, it is a amazing set of chords for the beginners to learn.
    From a old player like me, you Jonathan Kehew have a wonderful video.

    Super beginner that struggles to nail one chord but older wise man knowing about everything in life can be counted to a 1,2,3,4, beat. Learning self-defense, old fashioned hand nailing to frame houses, drum beats, etc.. Counting each step in your head helps speed learning all of it. Your help in saying the chords in time was upper level training. Neil Young:The Needle ? I heard, Old Man Look in my eyes...I'm a lot like you were.

      @Song Bike - jkehew1 Hi! thanks a lot for the answer! yes, the song has that sequence of chords during the verse... and the chords progression in the chorus is the same of "Wake Up Little Susie" by Everly Bros! D F G F D...

      I think Dylan's song is unique and not exactly based on the DCG Trick. I should learn it and teach it!

    How many phone calls have you gotten? That’s ballsy.

    • Song Bike - jkehew1
      Song Bike - jkehew1  Month ago

      I know, right? I DO get calls. Fortunately it's my business phone at my music shop - some people call at 3 in the morning. This video was originally filmed for local public access broadcast so adding the phone number made sense at the time.
