How to Play Barre Chords on a Guitar

For my how to video, I chose to show how to hold a barre chord on a guitar.

Barre chords are traditionally preferred to the regular way of holding chords because it is easy to transition between them quickly, and also because the barre chords offer a fuller sound.

Barre chords are typically what you learn once you have learned the basics of guitar and holding basic chords.

You can watch my video here.

    Hi Abe! I really liked your video (as I always do). Two parts of your video stood out to be the most: 1) I liked that you demonstrated what the finished product will look like at the beginning. and 2) I like that you compared the two different kinds of ways to play the guitar. Your camera was zoomed in at a good level to which it made it very easy to follow you. Great job!
