  • Hey guys, welcome to the second lesson from Chords Workshop Series! We have a lot of work ahead of us, so let's start from repeating what we covered in the previous lesson:

    In the previous lesson we covered:

    - what chords are

    - how they are derived

    - what are chord triads

    - learned open chords in C major key

    - learned about inverted chords

    - learned simple chord triads with inverted 5th interval across the fretboard

    In this lesson we go one step further with triads. We are introducing the "barre chords" here. The term "barre" doesn't have a lot to do with the chords, but more with the way how we fret the chord. To barre the chord means to fret all strings with our index, or other fingers as well in order to accomplish more fuller sound.

    Barre chords are great cause you can play all the open chord shapes all over the fretboard, and have 5 or 6 strings ringing in the same time which will result in a much more fuller sound. All the details are contained within the videos, so I won't go any further here in the text.

    I suggest that you take the time to watch the video number one (spoken video), cause I'm giving some tips on how to approach this lesson in the most practical way.

    Happy learning, and stay tuned for the next lesson in the series. :)
