When I figured this out it opened so many new doors. You start to see simple chord progressions as having endless possibilities. I dont really worry about the name of the chord anymore (Bmaj, F#m) its more about what shape I want to try and how I want to use it.
Another interesting thing too is how each shape has different qualities. Like the G form, which has kind of a funk quality. A form is more direct. E form is very confident (and often overused out of lack of knowledge). C and D forms interlace nicely and have a real pretty sound.
Now when you combine these notions you quickly learn how to develop a swirling, energetic jam out of something that once seemed stale. This is one of the big things that got me really in love with the Dead. I realized how much I could learn from them.
