What are Mu Major chords?


In today's lesson, I show you what are Mu Major chords, as popularized by the the rock-jazz band Steely Dan!

Those chords are awesome to get richer voicings without sounding too ''jazz'' with chord extensions.

In essence:
Regular chord: 1 - 3 - 5
Mu chord: 1 - 2 - 3 - 5

It's really easy to transform the open chords that you know into Mu chords. Here are the steps:

1) Pick your open chord
2) Find the repeated root note in it
3) Raise that note a whole step higher 

Mu Major chords are most of the times more stretchy than other types of chords, because you enlarge the fret span by raising a note 2 frets above!
