I'm posting this up in the hopes that I may glean some techniques on playing in certain keys a little better.
My favorite keys to play in are (in standard tuning) G, A (kind of, but not a whole lot), D, and E. I can sort of play in C a little bit, but I never really warmed up much to the sound of the conventional C major chord, though I do like playing the Fadd9, Gsus, Am7, and Badd9 a lot. It always seems kind of forced to me. I can play bar chords pretty well, but I've never liked them quite so much for playing in some of the keys like B and F. Of course, I normally would just use a capo to play these keys and also for any sharp or flat keys.
Does anyone have any tips on playing in some of these other keys? And what are your favorites? Does anyone use any of the "unconventional chords" to play in some of these other keys?
Share, share, share!!!!! (and if applicable, include diagrams for some of the chords you've come up with if you feel led)
