A few days ago an idea popped into my head that I have decided to follow up on, and I’m sharing this in case there are other guitar geeks/enthusiasts out amongst the internets who might be interested.
Using the lovely functionality of Twitter, I’ve started doing a “voicing of the day” — posting a picture of it, along with minimal notes about which strings are played. I’ve always enjoyed discovering chord voicings that resonate with me (sorry for the pun, but it really is the best word to describe it), that are unique, or just simply “sound good.” And now, I share.
If you dabble in the Twitterverse, you can search #voicingoftheday to see them in a list, or simply follow my handle: @garymelvin. If you don’t Tweet, I’ve also been posting them on my Tumblr blog with a similar tag, “Voicing of the Day.” (clever, huh?)
I probably won’t do one every day, but I’ll be doing them regularly for a while. Who knows, maybe other guitar nerds will wanna join in… chords will be flying everywhere… but I digress…
Enjoy the sounds.

I have made a dedicated page for this series and plopped it onto a subdomain: voicingoftheday.garymelvin.com (thanks, Tumblr.com!). The link can also be found under the “About” section of the navigation menu.
