    i always get my f chord wrong, especially the first two strings, i can never get them pressed enough with the index finger, is there something i can wear on my finger so that i can get the strings down enough. it is almost impossible to play barre chords when the guitar is tuned on a high pitch, the string being highly streched. help......without this there is no way i can play power chords. :annoyed:

    ahh..the F chord for begginners :( ..i know my friend what the feeling u get when u can't play the F chord...its really very discouraging...but there is no shortcut to success...keep playing..and what i did is this that whenever i hold my guitar to play i first tried to play the F chord...and that worked...keep practising....

    I know it's frustrating to hear it again but the only answer is PRACTICE, PRACTICE and more PRACTICE.

    The positioning of the index finger matters. try to hold down the 1st 2 strings with the side of ur index finger, rather than pressing them down with the flat of the finger. position your other fingers first and bring down the index finger last. see if this helps. I got the F chord to play well pretty quickly using this technique.
