Topic: I DID IT!!!!! (finally - barre chords!)
Last weekend, after looking at my husband and saying, "There is NO way I am ever going to get these stupid barre chords..." I later picked up my guitar...started playing this song that I really have wanted to play but couldn't because of an intimidating F & Bm chord in there...and I DID it.
For those still trying to get barre chords...try shifting your thumb around the neck of the guitar, pulling the guitar in a little closer, and something else I didn't realize - it IS kind of in the wrist. When I played them the first few times I really felt it in my wrist and all the way up my Tricep. Weird.
Sorry - I was so excited I had to share that news! I want to scream from the rooftop that I finally learned barre chords but nobody else in the world seems to care, of course. What's so weird is that after you finally get them to play right a time or two, from then on, they actually ARE really easy. Anyway, yay! I'm so excited! Thanks for listening to me raving on like a moron! :-)
