    Put left hand on frets (pieces of wood in between the bars) and press fingers on strings.

    Strum with right.


    Ta da.

    Next week: Pentatonics, arpeggios and phrasing.

    ICE ICE BABY!

    There's no 'I' in 'team'. But then there's no 'I' in 'useless smug colleague', either.
    And there's four in 'platitude-quoting idiot'. Go figure.

    I know, but when explaining it to someone its best to say that those are the frets, rather than the spaces between.

    It also makes it simpler when explaining tab (Fret 1 etc...)

    learning guitar? POWER CHORDS&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33; They are the beginner&#39;s best friend. Your hand stays in the same formation and you just move it around the fret board. Simple.
