1. Note Names: hello and welcome to bar chords and provide. Today we're gonna be taking a look at our bar chords and look how to play them and how to understand them. So hopefully you had the place where you know some open cords and you're just taking the next step in your plane. You want to build place in these cords that are sometimes more challenging for players like B minor or a sharp major stuff like that, that just looks hard and daunting. And hopefully we'll be able to make that simple and easy for you to play today. So to start the start is the boring part. The start. We're gonna have to look at some memorization, which is not fun. So if you already know the note names on the guitar, you can go ahead and skip to the next lesson here. But we're gonna start off with the note names. So this is the foundation of bar courts. What you're gonna have to do is you're gonna have to memorize the note names for this low Eastern. So if you know when we tune we to in this low string to an E. All right, so that's gonna be our foundation of our no name. So the 1st 1 is E open is E and the music alphabet. We go through the alphabet a B C D E f g, and then it stops and repeats back to a. And then there's Sharps and flats in between there. So first up we have E. And then we go right. So there's no e sharp in the musical level. But if you are familiar with that, then we going toe f sharp that second fret and then we go to G A B C D E f g, and then g sharp. And then we go toe a so repeats back to a We started the beginning of the alphabet. Next we have a sharp and then we've got B. And then there is no be sharp. So we go right to see next We have C sharp, followed by D. C. Sharp and then e 12th fret we get back to open. Open is e 12th. Fret is e so just couple things. Remember, there's a sharp after every note except for E and B. There's no such things in E sharp and no such thing as a be sharp. So that's our foundation. That's our lesson Number one for bar chords. What I do is I would walk through this and memorize it up and down, be able to climb up and down and no every note, um, memorized in the order backwards. Front words. That way, when you go, you could look at this. No, and be like, this is a B. This is a G. That way. When you're reading the music, we know our know. So this is gonna be very important, So make sure you memorize this before we could keep moving on. 2. Root On E String.: Hello and welcome to bar courts. Simplified. Today we're gonna be taking a look at our bar chords. Hopefully by now you've got your east during memorized. You know all the notes on the eastern because that will be super important for us moving forward right now, we're gonna be taking a look at understanding a little bit of bar chords. If it doesn't sound great, that's OK. We're gonna take a look at that in the next lesson. So for now, try to absorb and understand how bar chords work. So bar chords are mostly known as bar chords, but their professional name is the caged system You might have heard that might not have. But that is really what a bar chord is. Bar chord cage system means the same thing Cage system Is it spelt c a g e d. And what that stands for is our son. So those cords make up the cage system. And why is that? Because all of those chords will be played in such a way that we can slide them up the next , see a on so on so forth through the cage system. We're gonna be taking a look at two specific courts were going to be taking a look at E and A. Those cords are most commonly used for bar chords. The other ones are used, but just not as frequently. So we're gonna take a look at Major a major in the E minor. All right, So be sure you know those open chords before we get started here, we're gonna start off with our e major court, so go ahead and play. It's an open e major. Like you probably learned it before you play this open e major. And what we're gonna do is we're gonna do play that just a little bit differently. We're gonna use the same, um, notes, But we're gonna change the fingers that were using, so we're gonna flip it. So our middle finger ring and pinky finger are playing the court, and our pointer finger is open and not doing anything. So he's free, you know? All right, well, take a look at this. Right here is a bar chord. You are already playing in bar chord. It just so happens that the nut right here is taking the place of the mark. So if you picture this right here. I'm playing a bar chord, but my pointer finger is not doing anything. So all we have to do, then it's slide it up and our finger start pushing down, and we bar all six strings right here. It's playing an e major slip up a friend. So if we remember back to our note names, this is gonna be our route. All right? This is our route of the cord, and that is a f e. Yeah. So when we play that thistles an F major bar court, that makes sense. So we split it up from e f. Were using the route we can keep going all the way up the neck to F sharp major to Major Sharpe, Major. And I'm keeping the same shape. I'm just sliding up in the courts, changing based on this route. No. So I know this is a g sharp major, because e uh f sharp G g sharp. That's the root note, all right. And I know this is major because I'm playing an e major. If you can still see that and all this is is it is literally just using a cape. Oh, as your finger so you can pretend that your finger is a temporary Cabo, that you're putting on the guitar to play an e major. So I'm really playing an e major with the cable on the fourth fret to play AGI short major . Our finger allows us just that cable on and then take it off to be able to play other chords that we might want to jump into. All right, that is a major. So we can play all our major chords now, all the way up the neck. You've got e always to a high E that you can play. So these chords that you might nobody will play before, like an a sharp major are now super easy to play inaccessible. If you're not getting great sound, that is OK, we're gonna take a look at that in the next lesson. If you're getting buzz in or if it's just not ringing out, that's right. Just try to focus on this shape for now. All right, Now, this is a major. So what happens when we see a minor court aloft? Oftentimes you'll see these like a sharp minor. What we can't do the major. So what? We're gonna do? We're gonna take art minor. All right? You probably play like this or like this, and we're going to do the same thing. We're gonna flip it. So that way, thes two fingers are open. And what you're gonna do is you imagine this is your bar. Are middle fingers really not going to do much for this one? You can use them for support, but that's about it. And then we're gonna slide it up. So same things are e minor chord is being split up. So it's ask minor split up again, half sharp, minor split up again, g minor and so on and so forth. So now we've unlocked these minor courts, so hopefully this is making sense how to understand it. This is how we're building our bar chords. So you're not just memorizing one chord. You're gonna take a look at the process for how to get there, and hopefully this will help you as you're trying to play songs that have cords that you might not know. Um, for now, what I would do is I'd recommend going and just playing up the neck with these cords, trying to get a feel for it. Try to figure out what cord you're playing. So for two starters, let's do an example together. Let's do a B major chord. All right, so take a couple seconds. Think about this. How do we play a B major bar court? All right, so we're gonna take a look. Now, what we do is I would start with counting. So you're gonna count E f sharp. G g sharp? A a sharp be Cheerios. We found our note. That's the first step right away. I'm gonna bar that. All right. So I'm just gonna put my bar down. That's my cape. Oh, if you want to call it that so right away were there were setting to be locked into that be route. Next, we have a question. If we're playing a B major, we're gonna want to use an e. Major shape. Makes sense. The e major with the B major makes sense. If we were to do a being minor, we would use an e minor e minor. You be may be minor. So they go together, just makes sense And what we have to know to, as we are using these e shapes because we're on the e strength. So we're counting our notes on the Eastern. So that's why were able to use any major e minor it lines up together that's gonna be super important for us moving forward. So, no, that it might seem like an unnecessary step, but no ar e major and e minor are the shapes were using because we are on the e string. All right, we'll try this. Be major sound. Just like that. Look like this. You should be on the seventh. Fret barring and you should be playing e major shape. Alright, let's try one more before we move on. Let's try an f sharp minor. So same thing, Same process. We're gonna go e f f sharp. We're in a bar that All right, so right away, I'm just going straight for the var it there and then we're gonna use our e minors away Rights. We've got this e minor with our bar that makes a sharp liner, but this is making sense. Go through as many examples as you need for this e string. Just make up cords. Look up songs that you know you've wanted to be able to play but can't play because you don't know the cords and try different bar chords. Try just making up random ones. Try putting your fingers at a random spot and try to determine what court is. The more practice, the better you're gonna be at this and again. Don't worry. If it doesn't sound great, we're gonna take a look at that in a second. 3. Getting a good sound: Hello and welcome back to bar courts. Simplified. We're gonna be looking at How do we play these bar chords? How do we make it sound good today? So this is gonna be our focus. Is playing the bar chords, making them sound good, making sure there's no buzzing. There's no muted frets, things like that. So there's several tricks that we can use to do this. I'm sure by now you hopefully are able to identify the court shapes. You've probably got the shape, but it just doesn't sound great. So now we're gonna take a look at this four bar chords with number One thing is some placement. So on the back of your guitar, a lot of people, when they're playing open chords their thumb, you know, it's hanging out way up here. You know, this is fine for when you're playing all your open courts for bar chords. We do not want to do this, though. We want to tuck our thumb on the back of the neck here, and we want to use it has a leverage point. So your thumb wants to be like right here because we want to basically pinch with our bar. All right, so if your thumbs like, tucked away up here like that, that doesn't work. So you want to ableto pinch like this, So if I'm pinching the guitar, that's what we want to do under here, all right? And that's important because the bar is probably where you're dealing with the most difficulties for getting a good, clean sound. So for right now, let's just bar all six strings. Don't worry about a shape or anything else like that. We're just gonna borrow it, play all six strings and try to get them all the ring out. I'd start on the fifth, fret somewhere around there. That sounds that's normally a pretty easy spot for players to begin Bar it instrument. You're probably gonna run into some muted strings, or they're gonna be, like, buzzing like that. So pick through each no and try to get it to ring out. So check that some placement. If your thumb placement is good and you're still ran it running into issues. Here's a rule that applies to all guitar playing, but especially for bar courts. We want to make sure we're playing closest to the nut. If you're playing a note on dure playing back here. It's gonna start to get this nasty bus. But as I move it forward without applying more pressure, it's gonna be easier to play. So the closer to the nut this way we play, the better. So as close as I can hug these notes right here, that's better. So if I bar and I'm almost looks like I'm on the nut, I'm not on the right below it. That's gonna be a whole lot easier than back there. See how that makes it just not a good sound. That's how we're looking forward, that clarity right there. Another helpful tip tip that you can use its for our e minor shape. We can use our middle finger, and we can kind of wrap it over and apply some extra pressure. Sometimes this one's hard people, so if you do that that tends to work well for people to be able to give it just a little bit of extra. I would recommend going and playing just off the neck, kinda bharat different places. It's gonna be a little bit difficult if you remember when you started playing guitar. I'm sure your fingers hurt, you have to build up calluses. The same thing is true for bar chords, because we haven't been using all of this finger all for our guitar planes, so it's gonna have to get used to being able to play. He's bar chords. Another thing is sometimes see people, and they're like they're like trying to stick their elbow out here to get this but good leverage. Try and have to do that. Be relaxed tryto put your guitar. Nice spot. Have a nice angle for your elbow. You don't need to be sticking way out. You don't need tucked in either, and just be relaxed. Try to have your hand at a good posture that will help a lot. Um, one more thing that players often don't think about is they try to, like, tuck their hand, really close up to their guitar, allow it to be relaxed, have some space and some freedom in this hand loud. Just have almost like a little pocket under here. That helps for some players to, and one final tip is some people. When they bar, they bar in an angle and that also ties into their elbows. If you fix the elbow. Sometimes it helps with that, but make sure your bars not this way. You want it to be this way up and down right there. That should help with your clarity in your bar to. So try that all those tips together are gonna help your barring finger to be able to play nice, clean and crisp bar chords. That's most of the time. The most challenging part. If that's what you're struggling with, then you are in the same boat as most beginners with bar chords because it is extremely difficult. So don't get frustrated. Keep plugging away. Keep practicing because it does get better. The next problem that people sometimes have is there going to be, especially with E. Major there know that they've got the bar bar. Sounds great, But then this finger ends up like muting the strings below. So, just like open chords, we want to make sure these fingers are coming in straight. I tell some beginner players often that they want to be like Captain Hook, and it's a cheesy reference, But yes, you want your fingers to kind of hook in and push straight in. If your fingers are coming at an angle here, it's gonna mute the strings below it. So make sure you're not muting the other strings because otherwise, no matter how good your bar is, you're not able to hear those high strings ring out. Once you've got all these tips, put together rewatch as many times as you need to practice up a little bit, go through and just pick each string and make sure you get a clear, crisp and ringing out note for each of the six strings for E. Major. We'll try that with E major and minor, and once you get a nice sound, we could move on to the next lesson. 4. More Barre Chord Shapes!: welcome back to bar courts simplified. And today we are gonna be looking at How do we place amore bar chords other than R e major in e minor? Hopefully, by now you've mastered your e major in e minor shape for your bar chord. You can play all your bar courts up and down the front board. You can get a nice, crisp sound. Your bar sounds good and you're shapes both sound good, the major and the minor. So moving forward here, we're gonna be taking a look at another court in the cage system. So we've been focusing just on you, Major E minor. And right now we're gonna look at a because if you've been messing around it all, you know that like a B or a c sharp or a D Any of these cords are way up here, and our goal is be able to use these chords with our open courts. So if I, for example, b minor one of those commonly used bar chords, if I'm playing along and I want to go g D on the minor, it's not really practical to go way up here, right? That's that's just not very quick right on. It doesn't even sound like transitions. Well, sounds too high. So we're gonna want Tobe able to do is we're in a meal play on the a string route as well. This is going to shift some of our higher cords to a more playable spot on the neck. All right, so everything we've done has been e major e minor and it's been on east during route. So now I want you to separate this in your mind, because otherwise you're gonna get a little bit confused here. The reason all of this has worked is because we've been locked into the e string route Eastern route E major in minor. Alright. Eastern Route E Major, you minor lock that in so that we weaken on to our next court shape. The next court shape is going to be a major and a minor were on do the same thing where we play it in such a way that are pointer fingers free for both chords, a major and a minor. And what we're also gonna want to do is we're also going to take a look at the A string notes so quickly. Go through this. If you already know this, you can skip ahead a little bit. But it's basically the same thing as E string just down a little bit. So on Eastern, we started on the fifth Threat with a Now, if you're tuned, you tune e a So we're gonna start open is a for this fifth string were locked into this fifth string right here. Open It's a first fret is a sharp second fret is be third fret sc, remember No, be sharp. Then we got C sharp de d sharp e uh, half sharp G g sharp and 12 threat brings us back to a So that's all 12 notes and the musical shuffle. But there and it's nice because it's right in alphabetical order from the start with an open that's an A. So just remember that there's no be sharp and there is no e sharp. So you're right. Be right to C E rightto. All right, so now we can move on. We are locked into this a string for right now, so our cords are all going to be based off a All right, so a major a minor. And I'm saying this a lot just so that way we can separate this in our mind, cause it's almost two categories here that we're working on a missile makes sense in a second. Yes, we have a What we're gonna do is we're gonna start with our We'll start with a Meyer. Sometimes that's a lot easier for people to play. So play your a minor. So I've got my middle finger, my ring finger and my pinky finger used here. And I'm not using my pointer finger. Don't do the same thing, Aiken Bar. Now we're on the a string. So we're not gonna storm this top east during the sixth string here, so we don't even do bar. We can just bar right below it. And I'm gonna slide it up to my first chord here. If you notice I'm plucking from the fifth string down, all right? And this would be in a sharp, because this note right here isn't a sharp cool. Do not don't get confused. Don't think it's an f minor. It is not an f minor. It is a sharp minor. All right, Next up, we've got a b minor. All right, so right away we were just talking about B minor earlier. Notice the miners right here. That's a lot more practical than a reminder that is up here a lot quicker to play. Makes a lot easier to get. There. It sounds a little bit lower and richer. All right, that's B minor. Next, we've got C minor, C sharp minor, D minor, D sharp Minor s so on and so forth throughout the musical. Awful bet. All right. Next we're gonna be able to use are a major, too. So just like your cords appear that were major that are too hard. We're going to take a major. Now, this one's a little bit harder for some people to play. We have to build the user with our point, a finger open like this and slide it up. This'll be quite a bit of a stretch. Try it this way. First, I find most students are able to play it better when they play it like this. Some people are able to do it where they bars. They do about double bar. They bar with this finger, then they bar like this. You can try that. If you're struggling with the other way but I really recommend trying to play like this. First practice one a little bit. It's gonna sound not clear at first. Go through the same steps that we used in the last video to make it sound super clear and crisp. A sharp major thing we've got be a major and then we got C major and so on, so forth. Hopefully, this is starting to make sense that we have our e string route in our eastern courts and a string rumination courts. And this helps us because now we have two spots to build a play a chord. For example, a C major. We could play a C major here or you could play a C major here, see how they sound the same. They're just all right. So that's really helpful for us because we're able to lower these chords and plan and a lower active. All right, so we want to make sure that when we're building a court that we follow the first step that you probably haven't been thinking about when you were building your e major and e minors. So if I say the chord c sharp, minor, we'll go with that one. All right. Our first step is to identify what string were on. So if I count up here and I play C sharp minor here, I'm on the eastern. So East ring E major e minor chords. If I can't play it here on the a string, I will use my A major and a minor courts. And this is how we kind of start to build our cords. A lot of people trying to teach you how to memorize each bar chord. I don't like to do that. I like How do you learn? How do you learn how to play all the cords? How do you build your own court? So this is how we do it. So it's a step process. Step one, figure out what string, Ron. All right, so what string do you want to go to? And sometimes this is just trial and error figuring out which ones lower on the neck, and eventually you'll be able tow. Just remember which ones lower C sharp, minor. I know that's gonna be on a string route, so I'm locked into this a string. I borrow it right away, and then I know because I'm on a string. I have a major and a minor shaped toe Worry about now. Big thing. If we're doing C sharp Minor, we want to be aware of this shape, which is C sharp minor versus this that's very similar. Just like a minor and e major are very similar. The minor and major shapes are very similar for bar courts. If we get this mixed up accidentally put our shape on the wrong string, we're gonna be trying to play a C sharp minor. But we're gonna actually be playing a G sharp major. So it's very, very important to make sure that your string is down here and go on, review your a minor. If you're struggling to remember how to play in a minor or any of these open chords, be sure to review those because the super important for what chord were playing all right so far, we have a C sharp minor right here. The other place we can then play seizure minor as up here. Notice how they sound the same. So hopefully this allows us to be able to play our cords just a little bit down. There's the famous guitar player named Chet Atkins, and he wants that. I never made a dime above five, and he was referring to these bar chords and any other plane. And he basically was saying a lot of guitar players tried, get fancy. They play way up high, and they do all this higher cords and they think that's better. But he's saying these open chords, these lower courts, being able to play a B minor down here. That's often better, because if we're playing along just like we're doing earlier, she minor. That sounds like it flows, whereas the B minor way appear does not. So that's how we can use our A string to be able Teoh kind of lighten up our cords and be able to make it easier for us to play teasers for us to switch into. Biggest thing to remember is what string are you on? Are you on your east drink so you can use E Major and the minor or, you know, a string and use a major or a minor practices that up, give yourself a couple examples to do, and then we can move on to the next lesson 5. Examples: Hello and welcome back to bark Worth simplified. And this video we're just gonna be taking a look at some examples of bar chords. Hopefully, by now, you're starting to understand how to build your bar chords. You're trying to make them sound good. And this is just gonna be some examples that you can double check with me on. How do we play the bar chords? So for this whole video, I'm just gonna give you a cord and we're gonna play it. We're gonna play on both the e string route and the A string room, so feel free to pause at any time. If you need some more time to get to the cord. Rewind. If you want to retry an example and then make sure you check with me once you get the cord that you think is right. All right. We're gonna start off right away with a B minor. Be miners the most used bar chord because it fits in the key of G. But as we know, every guitar player likes to play in the key of G. So it's used a lot, So we're gonna use this. Be minor. We're gonna start with the east during and we'll do this every time we'll start Eastern route, and then it will go to a stringers. We're gonna play the same court twice in both spots that we know it. So find B minor and then follow along with me. Feel free to pause at any time. All right, First up is gonna be to find the note, so I'm on account of got e f f sharp G g sharp. A a sharp. Be nice. You should be at the seventh fret. And that should be a B double check. Make sure at the right spot often times just simple counting, forgetting that there's no e sharp stuff like that can throw you off for your friend. All right, we got B. I'm a right away. Throw that bar on. All right, so I've got a bar. That's my cape. Oh, on. Then I'm going to think about the minor. All right, so I'm playing a b minor, so I'm gonna want an e minor shape on the string. All right? And if this is confusing at all, just think about it. You found your know? You put a cape. Oh, on and then it's mine s. So we're gonna play in E minor. That's all it is. It's an open chord with a temporary capable. That's your finger. All right, so this is the mind double check. Make sure you've got that right. And then we're gonna move on to the A string. All right, so next up, we're gonna take a look at the a string. So we're gonna look a b minor on the A string. Take a second try to find that one, and then we'll do it together. All right? So first step is to be to count out the note names and again, just do it slow. Count out loud If you need to say that we don't get confused at all, we've got a is open a sharp hiss, First fret, and then is second front. So right away we're gonna bar that second fret, and then we're gonna look at our shape. So because we borrowed the second fret, we're now gonna look at a B minor shape. So we want in a minor. And this is very confusing for some players because looks a lot like an e major. But it is not because you're down a string, so make sure you got that. Play that double. Check that. All right, If you've got that, we're ready to move on. And this would be the core that we're most likely gonna use if we're looking for Accord to use with our open courts. The other case that we would use this higher one is if you're playing all higher court and tryingto your plane with maybe another guitar player and you want to make it sound a little bit different. Set your guitar playing. Apart from what? Their plane. All right, that's B minor. Let's take a look at another example. Let's do an a sharp major. A sharp major. The first step is to be to find the note. Now, people often get confused sharp and minor and major are not the same thing. So you want to find sharp sharps? The note major and minor is the tonality of that note or of the court. E f f sharp, G g sharp. A Don't stop there. We got a shark. All right, so now we've got the right note. We're gonna bar a sharp You should be at the sixth fret sound like that with nothing on. And then we've got a a sharp major and we're on the e strings. We're gonna want e major shape. All right, check that. Make sure sounds the same. If you're not getting all the notes during out, pick through each note. A lot of this is just practice and over and over and over to get the right sound. All right. Next, we're gonna do it on a string. So count we've got open is a right away. We've got a sharp. So first fret right there. Rebar First read. That's our a sharp bar, and then we need to make it major. So we're gonna put our a major shape. This makes sense. It's a And then we needed an a sharp. So we're just sliding enough. Hopefully that starts to make a little bit of sense on again. This one is probably gonna be the one that we're gonna use. All right. Next up, what's used a f sharp minor. So try to find F sharp. Minor. All right, so if starting off, we're in accounts we've got open, which is eat first. Fred is f second. Fret as f sharp. We're on the second fret here. Bar that right away or in the e string route. So we've got a major e minor. We're looking for an f sharp minor. So we need our e minor shape. Go ahead and play that. So it looks just like a cape. Oh, on the second fret and playing an e minor, that's all. We'll pick it, make sure you got each string ringing out. If you need to use that extra finger for support and then next we're gonna take a look at the A string A stream You got a A sharp B C C sharp D d sharp e f f sharp price or way up here. We're in a bar. It we're looking for a minor were on the a string route. So we're gonna use an A minor should sound just like that. Obviously, this is a higher courts or probably not use this one of her plane are open chords along with our bar chords. Check that. Make sure sounds good, and then you can go ahead and check the other one you had. They should sound the same. They do this sound the same to just one is higher, one is lower, so we're all set. You can do this on your own. Now that we've done a couple examples, make up your own courts trying to find courts that you're looking to play and just go through and do the same exact thing. Hopefully, this has helped. Just be able to practice a little bit more with your bar chords. 6. Wrap Up: welcome to bar chords simplified. And we're just gonna kind of wrap things up and take a look at all of our courts in mind. Make sure everything is smooth and that we understand the whole concept. So hopefully you're walking away, being able to play and understand the bar chords. So I like to teach it in a way that you understand how to build a bar court. So you're building your own courts. Always think about it like that. So it's not gonna be quick and easy right away, but hopefully eventually gonna be able to get to the place where you can kind of build it in your head and you can just go and play the bar chords without thinking too much about it . So, you know, I could be able to count every time if you had a gig or playing with some friends. You know, I could ableto wait, let's stop the music and count. So the more practice you do, the better you're gonna be able to do to just be able to be minor was playing or a sharp major. Spill the player your bill pull those up and recall a lot quicker, so keep practicing. And hopefully that will help. Always remember that string that you're on matters. So e major and e minor are on the eastern A major and a minor on a string also lines up nicely. So keep that in mind as your plane. And no, this is just part of the cage system. We just did. Ian A. You can apply the same concept to a d a si n g all of these cords going to played in such a way that you can slide up and down the neck just like that. So take a look at that. If you're looking for more bar chords, a lot of times those courts aren't used us frequently. They're used sometimes for, like, electric guitars. When they're playing Leeds and stuff like that, they might use those types of shapes. Other than that, we stick toe e and A for most of the time. So thanks for tuning into bar chords. Simplified. I hope this has helped your plane and be able to teach you how to just play these bar courts. How do you play some of the cords that you wanted to play, but just haven't been able to. Now I challenge you just to go out and find some music that uses bar chords, try to play it, tried to apply it and see how this can transform your plane. Because this is used by all sorts of guitars to travel artists in our gigging and are playing live and are in the studio recording these other chords that they're using to be able to make their guitar playing sound great. So keep practicing and I hope to catch next time.
