Playing Chords

When you first start, your fingers may hurt. Over time, your fingers will hurt less as they become accustomed to pressing your fingertips onto the strings.  It's important not to get discouraged when starting to play the guitar. Be patient. The process of learning can be slow, so you must put in the time. Thank you for choosing Ultimate Black Belt Guitar to help you on your journey.

A Bar Chord is played by using one or more fingers to press down multiple strings across a single fret of the fingerboard pressing down the strings like a bar. Using your first finger as a bar, you can create moveable chords by using the open chord shapes up the neck.
