The intermediate SWS
Understanding the SWS
The intermediate SWS takes you around the cycle of 4th (moving anti-clockwise) as well as the cycle of 5th (moving clockwise).
As it does, you’ll find all chords that belong to each key.
The inner circle of chords displays the minor chords (II, VI, and III), the outer circle displays the major chords (IV, I, and V).
To crack the fretboard code, you must organize all chords in each area of the neck, using chord I as your starting point. The intermediate SWS can help you with this.
Start by selecting a key by clicking a chord in the outer circle. Next, choose one of the shapes: A – C – D – E – G to find the I chord.
To master the guitar fret board, you must be able to play all barre chords and pentatonic scales in all keys and five positions.
We’ll use this to map out the entire fret board. Everything becomes easier to visualize once this foundation is laid.
The intermediate songs require you to learn barre chords and pentatonic scales. This will be revolutionary for your understanding of the guitar fret board.
