Yet another augmented chord, and it is obvious, that there is a pattern. Fingering is similar and therefore memorising is a piece of cake (I hope). Try comparing E augmented with F augmented to see what I mean.
First of all, although there are many positions (ways, variants etc.) to play the E augmented mandolin chord, these positions are exactly the same with two other augmented chords, G# aug and C aug. Why is that? Well it is no magic, it is just mechanics of music theory. I will try to explain this in a post that will follow, but for now, I think it is enough to remember just this: an Eaug is also an G# aug and a C aug, ok?
Now that I have made that clear :-) lets see how to play an Eaug mandolin chord.
As always, I suggest you start with the slideshow that shows the most common mandolin chord positions for Eaug – displayed on the top of the page above, fingered for your convenience.
For practical reasons, I have included also a Chord Chart for Eaug on mandolin, feel free to print it.
