guitar chords are nothing but notes or postion of your fingers on the strings and fret ..
when you check out the above mentioned link , you will come to know about chords in more details , ...
you need to practise chords but holding each and every finger of your left hand on the fret and strumm with ur right hand fingers or pick , the hold of your fingers on the fret has to be firm otherwise it will give out a wierd sound ..
Exactly, you should careful not to create any dummy or damp notes check regularly and adjust fingers accordingly, and by the way bobby, nice link.
a chord dict is already there at igt , i think it was posted long back by g gal .... you can search for it ...
or can also take reference from the foll link
ok thnx dude
two useful pointers-
place the fingers in a chord shape obly just behind the fret and not too much behind it. it needs least effort that way. i know people who place fingers between two frets and have a hell of a time.
also, for accuracy, make sure that the angle between finger and fretboard is strictly 90 degree always.
well thnx have been able to play chords from the song pyaar diwana hota hain a bit right but stil needs pracrice
learn how chords are formed..as in how they are derived from scales..
that will help u in the long run..
while usin barr chords..keep ur thumb exactly behind the neck ...that way more pressure will be applied ...
and remember the right hand is equally imp.
if u found these tips helpful..plz gimme a good rep..so i can start stealing again.
good one harry !
