A barre chord is a chord where you play multiple notes using just one finger. This can range from two notes all the way up to six notes at a time with the same finger. What this means for us as guitar players is that we don’t need to rely on open strings, and open string chord shapes. This opens up a new world of chord possibilities that was unavailable before. An intermediate player should be familiar with four main barre chord shapes!

It is important to have a good understanding of the notes on the neck, as this knowledge becomes more and more important as you progress. Click the box on the website to review the notes on the E and A strings if you need a reminder.

With our knowledge of the notes on the neck, we can easily move these barre chord shapes around. For example, if we wanted to play D major, we simply find the 'D' note on the E or A string and then play the correct

What we call the "universal strumming pattern" is a pattern that just seems to work with almost any song! It's also the perfect tool when learning how to read strumming patterns. It looks as shown on the website. Let's try to add chord changes to the pattern right away. Start by strumming the G major and when you feel comfortable, try the chord chart below. This is a very hard exercise at first, so take your time with it. When

The CAGED system is a set of open chord shapes which can be moved up and down the neck. They shapes fit together in the order C, A, G, E and D, hence, CAGED. We can use the CAGED system to play any chord in a number of different positions on the neck. If were to take the D major shape and move it up two frets, you would still be playing the same shape but the chord would now be E major! This is the same principle as the barre chords we learnt alread

Even though the above shapes work well in theory, they can be very hard to play for a lot of people. Instead, we'll play the shapes in a slightly different way!

The easiest way to learn minor CAGED chords is to take major CAGED chords and alter one note. All you need to understand is a simple bit of chord construction theory.

To create major chords you take the 1st, 3rd and 5th from the major scale. All of our major CAGED chords are constructed following that theory. For minor chords, you take the major construction and flatten the 3rd. This gives you 1st, b3rd and 5th from the major scale. So,
