Closed chords have no open strings in them. Also known as moveable chords. This means that once you learn the chord shape, you can move the shape up or down the neck to any fret on the 6th and 5th strings.
The open E5, A5 and D5 chords have open strings in them so they can't be moved. Go back to lesson 3 If you don't know how to read the chord diagrams.
Bar chords use one finger to press on two or more strings at the same time. These chords are very hard to play for a beginner but once you get it, they become quite easy.
Lesson one shows the parts of the guitar. The nut is located behind the first fret. It has grooves in it that the strings rest in and it also allows the lowest pitch to ring from the open string. When we us our first finger to press all the strings together, your finger is now taking the role of the nut in a sense. When you use your first finger to bar all the strings you have to switch the usual fingerings to fret bar chords because your first finger is now being used for the bar.
'E' Form and 'A' Forms
A 6 string bar chord uses all six strings. This is called an E form bar chord. It gets it's name from the E chord because it has the shape of an E chord in it. You use your first finger or a capo to bar all 6 strings on a fret and then add the E shape chord after it. FIND A GUITAR CAPO.
Each track has one version without the guitar in the mix, so you can play your guitar along with it. Some songs have the chords or Tab included.
