Chord of the Month


Article from Making Music, November 1987

Major thirteenth

We had a major thirteenth yonks ago, but for some odd reason Lewin insisted on making it as complicated as possible. This inversion is slightly sweeter, far easier to play, and makes it very tempting to slide the same shape up and down the frettyboard strumming lightly. Don't play the bottom E. At all. Index finger makes the barre, second finger on the A string, third finger on the B string, thus leaving the pinkie-oh to wander about. Could try it on the top E, three frets up from the barre, or shift your third finger over to the G string on the same fret, and let the pinkie take its place.
