    At present, i'm trying learn simple chords of guitar.

    I sometimes, during my learning, try to play one or two bar chords (G#m, D#). But I find it really really hard to do so !!! some good players might have experienced this during their learning.

    I found following techniques to play bar chords with more ease.

    Do you think it can be helpful? I want to know in my early stage of learning about techniques to play bar chords.
    Because if i get to follow something wrong in the begining itself, it could be almost impossible to change it at later stage.

    Thank you all in advance for your advice

    Sakura firstly search some of the older threads for tips. Secondly the key to playing barre chords is finger strength. Look at the "six simple excercise" sticky in this forum to see how to increase your finger strength.

    also the sticky thread "need help playing F" has good info in it.
