Slash chords are nothing to do with Guns ‘N’ Roses (although I’m sure Slash has played some Slash chords at some point). Slash chords are when we are asked to play a regular chord, superimposed over a different note in the bass. This could be because the chord is an inversion, or slash chords can also be used as a simpler way to notate upper chord extensions like 9ths, 11ths and 13ths.

The outro music to this video is my track "Mothers Day" which you can hear in full on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/artist/0wKKJoOZd8JQJDgGU8sb8V?si=dcs5zn4JRDO7oVCEkfK6YQ 🎶
