Every improvising guitar player, no matter what style, wants the same thing: To play a great solo time and time again. An important part of making that happen is having a solid neck vision.

These two-note treasures (which aren’t really chords per se as much as they are bottoms of chords) are so simple in fact that they’re sometimes referred to as “cheater” chords.
