Partial Chords???

A while back I was talkin to a guitar player and he was showing me some stuff. He was a great player and was playing his entire life. He did something called "partials" and went up the neck from like the 1st fret to the 12th and said these are all D's. It looked like he was hitting 2 notes one on each string say B and G, and he said they were called partials. Were do I find these, and if anyone can tell me a site or something or if anyone can elaborate more on these is would be appreciated.

You don't have to play every note in a chord.Sometimes playing just the most essential notes in a chord are enough.Sometimes even an essential note can be omitted in favor of a less essential note,it all depends on what all notes you are playing in combination.When only two notes are played they are called dyads or in more modern vernacular "double stops"...a familiar type of double stop is the power chord,consisting of just a root and a fifth.Power chords should be familiar to you as they are very common in rock and it's many subgenres.If you google around for the following terms you should find alot of info on the subject:"dyads","double stops","partial chords","jazz comping", "shell voicings",or "kernell voicings" or maybe even "skeleton voicings","freddy green style","funk chords","blues to jazz",etc.


here's some links to get you started in the right direction:

google some of the terms I mentioned it'll be worth it,and also check out guitarplayer.com's lessons

It's a pretty simple concept:

Code:
|||*|*
||||*|
||*|||
|*||||
X43121
^^^Chord

Code:
|||*||
||||*|
||*|||
||||||
XX312X
^^Chord partial

Basically, just use some of the notes from a chord.

These are the notes of F major (F A C) on frets 1-12. They repeat after 12. Try taking three notes on adjacent strings and playing them. You can play more or less notes too, if you please.
