Asked by Rick on 2000-09-02
I have trouble barring chords is there a way that will help me learn faster or more effeciently?

Rick, i don't know anyone one, who can show you, or tell you a quicker way, it just comes with practice, practice, practice. i've been playing for 30 years, just keep up the practice, tip for ya. perfect practice makes perfect playing , just keep that in mind.

Rick.. Hope this helps: Novices always think that you have to hold the neck like a vise for a barre chord (I did). Truth is that when holding, say, an \"A\" on the 5th fret, strings 3, 4 and 5 are covered by your other fingers. That means that you can relax somewhat and allow your first finger to bend in am more natural way. If you concentrate on the 6 th string (the fattie) and keep that well depressed then the pad of your finger can easily barre strings 1 and 2 (the skinnies). The trick is RELAX... (and practice).

Rick, something I always tend to forget. The closer your barring finger is to the fret, the less pressure you have to apply. The same applies to open chords.

Rick you should get yourself a rim job. This will loosen up your muscles and allow you to fret easier. Start with one and work your way up to 5 or 6 a day.

turn the volume and gain up so that you can play just by hammering on and everything sounds better
