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 finger 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.
