Reply To: Barre Chords
When teaching barre chords the hardest thing for them to master is the position of having the first finger completely flat. They have been taught from day one to have a curved finger and now I tell them to flatten it. Usually F#m is my first barre chord and I teach a watered down version of it = xx4222. This way they are only using four strings. Then I introduce bm. It takes a while for kids to get barre chords but eventually after enough practice it will come.
