The Bonus Twins
In this lesson you’ll meet the aptly-named Bonus Twins! These are variations on the chords you learned in Lesson 9. The Bonus Twins and the Porter Twins are virtually interchangeable; the Bonus Twins simply sound higher and brighter.
The following exercises include of a mix of C6, G7 and G9. Be creative!
Here is another version of Careless Love, this time harmonized using the Bonus Twins and sung to the lyrics of a new verse. When you change the chord voicings you bring out different ‘flavours’ of the song; this is a good way to add variation and depth to your performance.
Full Disclosure: The voicing of C6 shown above is missing a note. As a result it can sound a bit “hollow.” The fix this, add your little finger on the A string, 7th fret. In fact, you can add this same note to the G7, C13 and F chords to get some interesting new sounds!
