I found this in the song" Live like you were dying" by Tim McGraw. Can anyone help me on this? Chord notation Em7(x7x070) then (x6x070 and finally (x5x070). Thanks
(x7x070) then (x6x070 and finally (x5x070) => 6 strings EADGBE
There are for each chord 6 letters they refer to the 6 strings and the frets where they are touched:
x = don't play this string (mute)
7,0,6,5 etc. = assign the frets where these tones are: put your fingers here, albeit 0 means open string
You surely know the other chord notations like tab or chord shapes. s. guitar chord charts:
... and yes: these aren't barré chords, of course!
It is another way of writing out chords specifically to be played on guitar. Standard tuning, left to right is bottom string to top. There are only four notes played in each chord - the 'X' shows that particuar string is either muted (if strumming) or simply not played (if finger-picking). The 'O' means that string is played open.
First chord is actually Em9, dropping to Em9maj7, to Em9 (inc.m7). Although I can't hear that F♯.
