  • Barre chord shapes and transitions

    Posted by bugmeist on April 9, 2021 at 6:24 pm

    One of my goals is to get “comfortable” with more barre chord shapes. I play a few songs using the F and Am shapes but haven’t tried others. However the chords in the Key of F is getting me quite a bit better at those shapes. I’ll start working them into songs I play and…? Like any other part of learning this instrument “practice makes… easier. lol

    Good Plan, and I agree, practice makes easier. Have a good time with it!
    and Kudos on getting those first shapes down!

    Glad you’re feeling better with the barre chords. I’m slowly getting smoother with them also

    In addition to the shapes you mentioned @bugmeist , I like using the E, Em and A shapes as well. When I want to do some embellishment with my pinkie, I’ll change that E shape to an E7. What I love about using Barre chords is that if you know the root string of the chord shape, then you can go up and down the neck and always know exactly what chord you’re playing!
