I am a fingerpicking guitar player that has been playing the guitar since 2006 that would love to participate in a jam sometime in the future. As a guitar player, one of my aims when playing with other people is to add something to a song so that it sounds prettier. Something along the lines of what the guitarist on the right is doing in this video.
I'm taking a look at harmony scales which have helped me determine what kinds of little chords I could add on top of another. For example, if one plays a typical C major chord, I could add the notes B and D by playing XXX43X which is part of the fifth of a C major harmony scale. It adds a beautiful richness to the chord.
What other areas in music theory would people recommend I look into more deeply?
