Tips in Playing the Guitar Chords

  • When pressing down the strings, make sure you pressed it right behind the fret. This will greatly help in sounding that note very clearly.
  • Use the tip of the finger when pressing down the string. Do not use the fleshy part of the finger when fretting the string. The tip or the bony part of the finger is way more powerful.
  • Arch your fingers when fretting the strings specially when reaching the far strings or when the chords requires you to stretch 2 or 3 frets away.
