C Major Jam Chords and Progression

The 3 chords C Major, C9 and C Major 7 are all played using the standard C Major chord shape and then adding your ring finger on the 3rd fret of the 2nd (B) string to play the C9 chord and playing the open B string to play the C Major 7 chord.

This is a good example of taking a basic chord shape and adding or taking away one note to get a chord variation of a standard chord. Doing this is a great way to come up with more melodic rhythm parts and keep things interesting.

C Major Jam Bass Tab

The bass guitar part is centered around the Root note C on the 8th fret of the 4th (low E) string. Play the Root and 5th (on the 10th fret of the A string) and then you move from the 9th of the scale to the Root to the Major 7th and back to the Root note.

Play around with all the notes of the C Major scale and see what bass patterns you can come up with. With the rhythm guitar playing C Major, C9 and C Major 7th chords you will find that every note of the C Major scale can be used quite well in the bass.

So get experimental.
