Breaking down barre-iers!

Firstly I want to congratulate you! If you’re looking at this course, and you’re either starting your barre chord journey or getting frustrated by how long they take to learn, that’s amazing news! It means you are no longer a beginner guitar player, and you’re crossing over to an intermediate skill set! Now don’t get me wrong, the crossing is a long bridge, with many hurdles, but we’re here to help you through it! To conquer the barre chord, you need great tools in your practice belt, and you need to be a little bit stubborn. In this course, we’ll give you the tools you need to master the barre chord, and help you with the mindset of learning them.

When I first started barre chords, it almost made me give up on the guitar entirely. It was so frustrating! Luckily, I had a great teacher and I was a stubborn teenager. I’ll teach you exactly how I did it.

Four shapes to master

In this course we’ll be tackling the 4 most important barre chord shapes. The E shape, the E minor shape, the A shape and the A minor shape. It’s likely you’ve come across these before, but we’ll take each one individually, with a unique track, to ensure that you can put them into practice in a fun and focused way. The tracks are designed to support your playing, but you are very much the guitar player in them, letting your chord playing shine through. As you get better, these tracks will get better with you! So, whether you’re just starting with barre chords, or you are a struggling as an intermediate player to get to grips with them, this course is your ultimate reference and guide to breaking down those barre-iers (sorry, pun definitely intended!).
