PHAT Chords



When I first learned of Phat Chords, this is what I found in my research:

I felt like I had arrived at another advanced level of music and that it would be hard to understand! lol I had discovered a dictionary of Phat Chords!

In many music forums, you'll find slash chords written to give you examples of those Phat Chords! For Example:

FC / EbGBbD / F (foot pedal)
ADbG / ACFA / B
BbF / AbCEbF / Bb
FB / EbGBb / Db
CBb / EbBbDF / C
FBb / ADGb / F
BbF / AbCDF / Bb
DbAb / FAbCEb / Db
CBb / EAbBbEb / C

Jonathan Powell from hearandplay.com reveals many hidden secrets that advanced musicians don't share. These chords are used in todays top gospel songs. He speaks a lot about dissonance and he adds lots of grace notes in his West Coast style of playing. I actually own his Dvd and I'm very pleased with it.
