7th Chords (Beginner & Intermediate)

This is a Beginner & Intermediate lesson on how to play 7th chords on the mandolin (e.g C7, G7, E7 etc). I'll start by explaining the theory behind them and then we'll play a short arpeggio exercise. Then I'll show you a 7 shape that means you can play ALL 7 chords on the mandolin! For the intermediate players, once you have mastered the basic shape, I'll show you a slightly harder one that comes in useful on certain chords. For both standards, we'll have a play through Man of Constant Sorrow as an example piece.
