    Great stuff there, and immediately useful. Is there a similar trick for what to do when you hit a minor chord?

    • Joel Weiner

      Great lesson. Theory helpful and makes sense. Practical to apply. Will work on this later today.

    This is awesome – thanks again for this little bit of gold, Greg!
