Topic: Songs to Practice Barre Chord Changes?
I'm looking for songs that have a lot of chord changes requiring barre chords-- like F, Bm, Bb, and B. For example, I've got two songs, Cecilia by Paul Simon, and Big Rock Candy Mountain that go back and forth between between C and F over and over again.
Got any other songs like that? Like one that goes back and forth between G and Bm?
Also, I'm still a little slow going into a Bm barre, so to keep on the beat, I leave the previous chord a little early to give me time to make the barre. Like if I'm playing a G for four beats (1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and) I'll leave the G just after the 4 to give me extra time to change. Is this ok? Do other people do this?
Here's another question--I try to do full barre chords, but depending on the song, if it seems too difficult, I'll do an alternate fingering so I don't have to do the chord. Do other people do this? Or do you always make yourself do a full barre?
