How to Play The Half Barre F Chord

The F chord on the guitar for beginners and even intermediate players can be very tricky and frustrating to get the hang of. I have a simple solution that should help everyone out. Simply put, imagine a string in between the 1st and 2nd string and press on that with your first finger. This should grab both strings and get them to ring clearly Also watch the video I did on the C chord as you will need these techniques too

This video supplements a chapter from my book where I go into great detail about F and many other chords

Please check out my book where I go into this chord and so much more in great detail. Every chapter and technique has a song to learn which will cement everything I teach you. The book comes with 9 hours of video lessons and demonstrations as well as audio files for you to practice and play along to.
