Bar the 4th fret then make an Amaj shape on the 5th & 6th frets.
Think of it as a Bm only 2 frets up.

Re: Learn to strum well

How can I improve my strumming ability? Since in the tabs I have you are only supposed to strum the bottom two strings, I cannot seem to keep my pick from not just doing the bottom string when I try to do it at his speed. What could I do to practice this, as it seems doing it over and over is not a...

Re: My pinkie is useless...

I had the same problem (and still do when I have to reach very far). One of the things I did mainly to improve my little finger's usefulness was to relearn the G chord. I originally learned it with fingers 1, 2. and 3, and played it exclusively that way for a long time, but then I decided to learn ...

Re: how

That's the problem with TAB! You have to know the song very well to follow the tab. Try to stick with lessons here at GN where David H. gives you the strum pattern etc. Or, you tube lessons, now you have something to follow. Since you're just starting out try to stay away from (well, hard riffs) and...

Re: Beginner in need of advice.

The reviews on the Estaban guitars are not good (to say the least). I don't have a link available but I remember reading up on it a couple of years ago. You can get a decent guitar for $100 to $150 off the internet. If you have the money try to spend around $300. If not, Christmas is coming soon! Tr...

Re: Major Help!

Take your guitar to a guitar shop and have it set-up. This will cost somewhere between $20.00 and $50.00 depending on where you live. Explain the problem you're having and tell the to put on a really light gauge string and set the action low. The cost is worth it because the guitar won't be fightin...

Re: Losing the "fire"

I'm there too.... the guy I played with has a business now and we haven't played since June. I would always practice (HARD) so we would sound good. I'm working on some stuff but not like I used to....

Re: advice needed, i just started playing guitar

Start out strumming with your thumb and or fingers. Get a sense of timing then use the pick.

Re: Picks, picking and strumming.

As far as holding the pick, make an OK sign with your (right hand) Index finger to thumb - this is where you hold the pick goes. Hold it loosely.

It takes time to get that pick action. Stick with the thin pick for now.
