    Arrow Help in shifting chords............

    I wanted to get some help regarding shifting of chords.
    Actually when i shift any chord , say f to g or c to g or a min to f, any thing like that i play an open stroke before shifting .
    I can shift almost all chords but with this problem.............
    This gives a bad sound.

    You have to get quicker with chord shifting. With time and enough practice you will speed up. Keep practicing.

    best thing to do for this kinda problem or anything related to chords shifting. try this....

    1) strum slowly, strum continously even if when you shift the chord and play it incorrect dont stop...keep struming and gently adjust your finger so dat the chord is proper. but never stop.
    2)widout strum try to shift the chords .....see where you r having problem. which finger is misplaced....etc. you'll figure it out.
    3) practise, prastice and practise.

    there is small exercise in to get rid of it....i am not sure.

    2)Practice harder
    3)Practice even harder
    Add this to the above advice and your problem should be eliminated in no time.

    another thing u cud do which might help u get faster is when u wanna play a particular chord u fret all the notes at the same timeFor eg. say g major ,earlie when i used to play i would fret the bass notes first and then maybe a second later the higher notes i would fret. Dont do this, u must fret them at the same time.
    I hope im getting my point through
