In this lesson, we will explore the 2nd and 3rd positions of a minor key on the Cuatro. We will see how these positions make use of the same figures as the E minor, as well as the G minor figure. The G minor position is open to variations, but it is not as commonly used.
We will learn how to use the figures of a chord to find other chords on the Cuatro’s fretboard, and we will discover how existing chord figures can help us find different chords on Cuatro. It is important to keep in mind that the figures discussed in this lesson are not the only ones that exist; there are potentially hundreds of positions. Therefore, we have chosen a few to focus on in order to provide a solid foundation for further exploration.
A Minor 1st Position
A Minor 2nd Position
The 3rd position of A Minor will make use of the E Minor figure, which can be seen below.
A Minor 3rd Position
Within the video, we will review not only the A Minor in its different positions but also the corresponding Subdominant and Dominant or simply the progression of I – IV – V.
