In this quick guitar lesson for beginners, I run through the basics of playing the guitar “barre chord” and expand upon the previous power chord lesson. The barre chord is an important chord shape for all guitarists to know and learn. As a beginner, after you’ve completed this lesson and implement proper practice you will be able to play barre chords easily and will be linked to a tutorial on how to play Ellie Goulding’s “On My Mind” which utilises power chords throughout the song.
For a visual guide on playing barre chords and their different variations refer to my FREE Chord & Songwriting cheat sheet that you can get above.
