So I am so very excited!! I JUST LEARNED HOW TO BARRE CHORD!
I am uber excited
The songSTOP AND STARE - One Republic has been really easy for me to learn. It's been only four chords, just that one barre chord kept getting in my way. I was being a loser and feeling depressed about the opportunity I gave up with this guy I really like/d and basically just picked up my guitar and started playing to get over it. Started off with some Cranberries, but that song is getting old for me to play (hopefully I can sing and play that soon if I'm getting so used to it now) and eventually got to trying the One Republic. E, Emaj9, and A chords were simple, but I had seriously been struggling with the C#m chord. MY FINGERS ARE SO TINY!! I almost thought it was going to be impossible for me to barre any chord, but I did it! Also, I tried the dreaded F chord. I was able to do that, too.
Good to know that practice can indeed help, and in moments when you least expect it; moments when you feel empty, lonely, and dark, you can still shine bright in your own eyes.

good job, indeed.
Sheryl Crow songs work wonders on practicing barre chords, if you're a fan that is. (: <--- not a smiley, a unibrow, lol.[/quote]
Thanks I am sort of.. lol Depends on the songs, but I'll definitely look up some that will help me practice :) thanks!
hahaha.... I'm trying to explain the barre chord to my roomie (he doesn't jam). Good for you! I'm sure it opened your eyes a bit. Now you gotta figure out the relationship of the notes that make up the chord.... Have fun!!
