|You are at Chapter II More... Practicing how to produce Chords|
Hey, you don't have to know all the chord theory right now! This page is intended to prepare you for how to play the chords.
|As you practice
playing Chords, please notice that the thumb will stroke a bit outwards ...while the i, m, a, fingers' stroke direction will be inward
toward your palm. The actions are synchronized.
Don't throw your hand and wrist out as you produce Chords. Keep them free and steady.
1. Two notes together (intervals)
Stroke direction is into your palm. Don't throw your hand outward!
|2. Two notes and bass||
The p will stroke a bit outwards, the i, m, into the palm
|3. Three notes together||
Is your wrist free and loose?
Three notes and bass
The p (bass) acts against the i, m, a, (treble) at the same time!
|There are guitar methods, and some teachers, that begin teaching guitar by teaching chords. I think that it can cause damage because a guitar pupil should develop his hands so that each finger will be able to act and perform an individual role. What we have in Chords, are left hand patterns, and that is bad - unless you are practicing them like the above exercises: - lots of open strings, as the practice here is for your right hand.|
