1. Learn these chord shapes off by heart making
sure that you use the fingers as shown.
Take note of the similarities to the major and
minor chord shapes.
2. Practice strumming them. Be sure to strum the
right number of strings.
3. Check the sound of each string by forming the
chord and then picking each and very string
(even those not in the chord) to make sure that
the string rings clearly.
If a string does not ring clearly you might
not have –
(a) the shape of your hand and / or
fingers right. This could lead to
- a finger not sitting properly
- a finger falling over and touching
another string.
– resting your finger on the fret metal,
and not behind it.
(b) enough squeeze.
