Bar Chords Help! – Student Spotlight

In this Student Spotlight lessons, I will help Becki figure out how to practice those pesky bar chords!

Bar chords are usually very frustrating for most beginner guitarists, but with a little perseverance and the proper method, they will feel like second nature in no time!

To submit your own "Student Spotlight" video question for me to answer, send your video to me from the Student Spotlight Video Submission Page.

    I was going to post a video with the same question, but found this one. I thought I had no problem with barre cords, but I in learning “The Rain Song” I found that I couldn’t nail the barre cords. Turns out I was not putting pressure on the correct part of my finger.
    Thanks Carl and Becki!
