Changing Between Bar Chords And Open Chords

In this lesson we talk about ways to practice chord changes. We’ll take a look at the F major barre chord, and learn a bit about how and why to use a capo.

We’ve also got some great exercises for practicing both Left and Right hand finger independence, along with a brief introduction to basic fingerstyle and picado (right hand picking) techniques!

Questions Asked During the Session:

[14:22] Please explain simply what key one would be in if the capo is moved one, two and say three frets along the neck. Please explain starting with D chord ( standard shape) and what chord it is when at fret 1, 2 and 3.  Then maybe use C chord if this makes sense.
