advice on barr chords

(1/3) > >>

hey i've been playing for a little over a year, and i have still not tried to take on barr chords, i would apreciate any tips on good chords to start out with or any advice on them in general.

two very basic barre forms are the e-shape and a-shape
take an e chord played with your2, 3, 4 fingers and slide it up a fret.  bar the strings behind it on the first fret and you have an f chord.  move it up two more and you have a g can do the same with the baisc a chord position at the headstock and slide it up just the same........

im going to try whatyou said(markmilly). if you or eny one else has any other input,i'm open.

I've been playing for one year myself and find barre chords very challenging. What I try to do is to fret the single chords first and lay down the bar immediately thereafter. It seems to work for me, if I am explaining it corectly. I have just recently mastered the F and B. Good luck! It's a lot of fun and a lot of work. I wish I took this up 25 years ago!!!

I've been playing for around 8 years... with bar chords i usually have my finger sort of rotate so it's not flat but somewhat on it's side.. I find it easier to do it this way because it's easier to fret the bar and you don't have to push down as hard
