  • OK George, I "think" I know where this is heading so.......
    If you are saying that the 1st Chord for example is E

    E
    B
    G 1
    D   2
    A   2
    E

    Then Barre at the 4th Fret would be G Sharp

    Same at the 6th Fret would give you A Sharpe

    Now try this. E then 5th Fret would give you A and 7th Fret would be B7th Which gives you a typical 12 bar blues :D

    If you lend someone ?20 and never see that person again, it was probably well worth it.

  • Hello! I?ve just began learning how to play guitar and I'm having trouble mastering some of the guitar chord basics. I can play C and G easily, but F is really kicking my a**. Many of the more advanced chords are really hurting my fingers. Does anyone have some tips?

    I don't mean to sound like a prat, but practice is the best thing for it. When I started on guitar, my teacher had me draw chords on index cards (one per card). He would then make me shuffle them, and first lay out three. Then work on moving from chord to chord. Slowly, at first. Then faster, while he kept time. Eventually, I worked up to seven cards at a time.

    Barre chords can be real tough when first starting out. Fingers aren't really meant to exert lateral pressure like that. Keep it up, and don't get discouraged. There are days when I also hate making those chords.

    Are you doing F as a full barre (strike all six strings) or a mini-barre (strike the thinnest four strings only)? If you are on an acoustic guitar F is probably the toughest of the basic chords to get right so using the four string version allows you to work on other things such has keeping a solid rhythm or singing as you play. Sure you will eventually have to master a full barre F chord but you might find it more motivating to put this off for a month or two...

    I like to spell peddant with two Ds. That always annoys them.
