CGDDAE: Breakfast in the Field

The title track off Michael Hedges’ album. Possibly the only piece of music on the planet that has minor and major 11 chords voiced – 1 5 3 9 7 11, and 1 5 3 9 7 #11 on 6 string guitar! This is because these voicing’s are impossible in standard tuning, except for the minor 11, which can be played in only 1 position in standard tuning – EBF#GDA fretted E open string, first finger on 5th string 2nd fret for B, third finger on 4th string 4th fret for F#, G open string, second finger on 2nd string 3rd fret for D, fourth finger on 1st string 5th fret for A.

All Guitar Chords for CGDDAE can be found  HERE

*Chordmaps are an amalgamation of chords and scales. Each chord map can yield sometimes 5 chord shapes in its given key. Chords are made up of 2+ notes in the respective scale. EADGBE has evolved to provide a good compromise between simple fingering for many chords and the ability to play common scales with minimal left hand movement giving highly responsive chords and well renowned chord shapes. Alternate tunings have wider fret spans making normal chords difficult to reach. That’s not to say chords map don’t have good chords. With a little effort some original and strikingly beautiful chords can be found in Chord Maps.
