Two options this month, the fun one and the rather silly one.
1. Gimme Chords!
Here's three chords, G D/F# A - use 'em as you like. However you like, whatever progression, add more chords, go crazy. But you have to at least use those three chords somewhere, somehow.
Just because someone will ask, I think it's fine if you want to rather use/swop G Major, D major, A minor instead of those pictured. Though, those three pictured voicings have a distinct flavour together
Max 2 minutes length.
Bonus point for guessing the band that inspired me to choose these three chords. Second bonus point for guessing the song!
2. Gimme Pain!
Because @domhatch asked for something 'HECTIC', I dug this out of the "guitar lessons that are still kicking my ass" folder. It's a 12 bar blues progression in Cminor, but with more than a few -ahem- flavourful chords. Did I mention, there's 26 chord changes and only five shapes are used twice in 12 bars...
The purple highlights are my attempts at finding the root on each chord.
