GROUP WORKSHOP On-line November 29th, 2:00 - 3:30pm EST

Bar chords are a kind of moveable chord shape. They allow us to use a single shape to play any chord up and down the neck. Bar chords are a great tool for playing percussivley, letting us dampen our strings and control how long our chords ring out. Bar chords can be a bit daunting to wrap your hand around. It can be painful to play them and confusing to know how to use them. In this workshop, I will show you technique for playing these chords, how they work and when to use them. All levels of players are welcome, both acoustic and electric.
