SOME ALTERNATE FINGERINGS.
Here are different ways of playing two of the
chords.
Firstly F.
This is the “full” version of F. You have to make
finger 1 cover two strings at the same time -
strings 1 and 2.
The easier fingering allows you to get into songs
quickly and enjoy them. Work towards being able
to play this version of F which has the proper
sound.
The easier version of F is properly called F maj7.
G can be tricky when first learning to play it. It
is important to play the finger group on strings 6
and 5, but for now you could leave the little
finger off.
Remember this fingering change is only to be
used as a stepping stone to the full fingering.
With this easier fingering you can play and enjoy
songs that have G in them.
