I have found in over 30 years of teaching that when learning the chords to a song it is

just as easy to introduce the idea of "Chord Shapes" as it is to teach the chord itself.

By introducing "Chord Shapes" the student can grasp the idea of by just adding or removing a finger they can produce different Bar Chords. My guitar bar chord method uses guitar chord shapes

to form all the major, minor, seventh and minor seventh chords up and down the guitar neck.


Learn the basic chord shape and then depending on what finger you remove you will have made  another chord.order You will learn four chords for each fret...Depending on which  acoustic guitar you own you can comfortably play Bar Chords up to the 10th fret and on Electric Guitars you can easily play up to the 12th fret. Once you mastered the one bar chord you will be able to move it up and down the guitar neck making a different chord at each fret. With diligence on your part, practice and my guitar bar chord method you will find playing bar chords fun and very useful.
