Using Different Chord Shapes Together

Going Up, But Staying in The Same Position

Playing the drone G string at the same time of the F chord gets what's called a "suspended" sound. Pretty ain't it?

Time for even more theory. This lick has that same sound that climbs up to the F chord. Before, we played two notes from our first inversion shape, and climbed up to the F chord. Here, we're getting a similar sound by switching strings. In the other two note chord, AKA a double stop, The notes on the B string were C - D - E - F when playing on the 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 6th frets. We can get those same notes by playing them on the Open D string, then 2nd and third frets get E & F.
