What are Bar Chords?Bar chords (or barre chords) can seem like the “Holy Grail” of guitar playing. Beginners fear them, more experienced players both love and hate them. They’re tricky at first, but as you progress to intermediate and advanced music, you’ll find them everywhere. **In case you don’t know, a bar chord is a chord that requires the first finger on the left hand to cover multiple strings. It could be just two strings, or it may need to press down all six strings. This takes some special skill, a bit of strength, and a whole bushel of patience.

Course Level: EARLY INTERMEDIATE
This course is at the EARLY INTERMEDIATE level. This means that most of the notes will be in the lower positions, with occasional notes moving into higher positions (usually just on the 1st string). The rhythms are mostly simple. Chords are mostly common, open-position. TABs are included for an alternative to music notation. For more advanced players, pieces in this level can be used as a study to improve learning, memorization and phrasing techniques.
