Guitar Chords for Respect by Aretha Franklin

Using the capo is controversial to many guitarists, but it’s essential to play the correct chords without making the song harder to play. The capo is used to prevent the guitarist from using more complicated chord shapes that require more skill to change into and out of, as well as preventing less smooth position shifts between frets.

This will be a great progression to learn too if you’re struggling with using 7th chords.
