    i guess thats what vini replied to u in the hindi thread u created


    ok let me clear sth

    when it says chords its usually u strike all the strings it says eg for G its 320033 so u put ur fingers in those position n u strike all thats striking thing its better if called strumming


    when chords r plucked one at a time its called arpeggio


    hmm what more can i add


    look for the tutorials posted here n also in cyberfret n ultimate guitar websites


    hope that helps at least a bit


    (reps r welcomed lol)

    u'd asked me sumthing in that thread..if in case u havent checked it..here is what i replied to ur query>> http://www.indianguitartabs.com/showpost.php?p=229845&postcount=6

    i thought u said u know how to play C G7 Am Dm E Em chords..then y ru asking how to play chords? :think:
    u firstly need to know the position of chords like which fret n which string..hold that position and strum..like for example how to play Eminor:-
    e---
    B---
    G---
    D--2-
    A--2-
    E---
    press these two notes...that is 2nd fret of D and 2nd fret of A and strum all strings at one go...i hope u know whats strum? :Worried: ok..hope u do
    You just played Em chord..congrats!!
    :)

    u would catch up wid more practise...ur basically not getting when to switch chords: CHECK ATTACHMENT!!

    where u have to switch the chords..now uL know coz i have put the chord right beneath the word where u need to change the chord while singing....
    Hope u get it :)

    u cant force urself to do sumthin which u cant as a newbie..so have patience and keep practising..try listening to the song and playing along wid it..soon uL come to know when to change chords on ur own
    All tHe best!!

    First put aside your guitar and listen to some plain drum-play for some time. I mean without any rolls and frills. Tap your feet to the beat. U'll find that the beats are equispaced. Take 4 beats= 1 bar. the speed of the beat is also ur tempo. Now sing the song to that tempo and play chords alongwith it. U'll find urself understanding the answer and improving in no time. If u don't have a drummer friend, use FL Studio.
