Why would anyone practice finger placements with an amp?

Oh, I did. Small apartment, steel-string acoustic guitar. Not everyone starts with an electric. laugh.gif wink.gif

It's a proven fact that guitar faces have a bigger impact on tone than wood does.

I remember my brother saying to me that the worst part of the day at home was when I was practicing chords. biggrin.gif And definitely the most difficult one to get right was F for me, too. However, when we are talking about chord progressions, I'd also add B7 and C7 (from the open position) to the list since they are kind of tricky for the left hand.

But practicing chords is definitely worth it. I think it may have done more to my playing than anything else. smile.gif


Haha, that's funny! But, I bet its not as bad as people who are learning to play a trumpet or sax with all the loud squeaking going on and wrong notes being hit. And you can't turn the volume down on those!

Both F and B!

F because it's the first barre chord that most seem to learn. It doesn't help being that far down the neck - if i was to have learnt the shape further up the neck it wouldn't have been to bad! Getting the forefinger position right was definitely key!

B because, well, its a sucky chord ! My ring ringer keeps muting the high e string!

When I look in the mirror I see a face-melting guitar shredder.... maybe my mirror tells the future?

F major was hard ofc biggrin.gif, but I still have some troubles of fretting clean A-shaped chord anywhere on the neck. I don't use the full version because of that smile.gif
