#3429961 best way to practice barre chords?

Posted by halfmoonbay on 11 August 2012 - 07:56 AM

When you're practicing making barre chord shapes and you think you've got your fingers where you need them, try picking each individual string rather than strumming. If each note rings out, great, you've got it sorted. If you get a muted note then chances are you need to either press down harder with your first finger (the one that you tend to make the top of the barre chord with) or make sure that the rest of your fingers aren't touching the neighbouring string when they shouldn't. Adjust your fingers accordingly, then repeat. Once you've got the shape of the chord right then you can practice being able to make it quickly, and being able to move it up and down the neck.

Sailing is much fun...I take a geetar along as well for the apres-sail :D

Was out sailing last weekend (one-man lasers), though mountains and rocks are more my thing than rivers and lochs I can see the appeal.

I've been known to play blues on the Soloist, how scandalous.

Have had some Rory Gallagher on in the car lately, hadn't listened to much in a long while and it was a reminder of how brilliant he was. If anyone was ever in doubt as to the potential versatility and quality of a Strat in the right hands then his live Irish Tour (1974) and Live In Europe (1972) albums are worth a listen.
