Chords on the treble
« on: January 20, 2016, 11:43:23 PM »

Im wondering if you can do chords with the treble on a D/G and if so how to do it?

Of course you can and many people do.  You'll find a chord chart from Lester and friends here:

How you do it will depend on what you're playing.  Cajun players drop notes in throughout, as do other one-row players, and many other types of tune can benefit from some chords here and there.  People who accompany singers or other melody instruments often play chords during the verse to avoid competing with the melody.  Others will be along to advise on the different styles they play and how they use RH chords - sometimes to supplement the meagre ration available in the LH.

I would highly recommend Ed Rennie's book on this very subject which not only lists all possible RH chords but has an excellent pre-amble explaining all the theory of chords.
