3. Chord Hand.
The hand is of course the other hand to your
strumming hand. We put the fingers of this
hand on the neck to build chords.
So we know which fingers of the chord hand we
are talking about each of them is given a
number.
The pointer is finger 1, your middle finger is
finger 2, the ring finger is finger 3 while your
little finger is finger 4. The thumb isn’t usually
used to play but when it is needed the symbol
‘t’ is used.
Again you should have your whole arm relaxed
and comfortable. Let the top half of your arm
hang down from your shoulder, and then bring
the bottom half of your arm up so your hand
reaches the neck of the guitar. Do not rest
your elbow on your leg, a table or have it
tucked into your side.
