Re: Playing more than 4 strings

Barre chords, hybrid picking, flat picking... in particular with electrics some songs use flat fingers to hold of deaden multiple strings. More details of what you want to play please.

chord the g,starting at the top pick

down 4 strings then start at the bottom and pick up 4 strings,then move your two top fingers down a string each,now you have c chord,try to pick that down starting at the 5th (2nd from top} string,pick down 4,then pick up 4 starting at the you have used every string on the guitar.this should work with all majors and you have now learned a picking pattern. JAM ON!

if your not sure what a g and c are you can google   guitar chord library   this comes in very handy.

Re: Playing more than 4 strings

learn open chords really well in the best advice i can give you. if you know these in some songs you will be able to recognise what position to put your hand in even if it doesnt say on the tab, which really helps. Also, practice scales going on all 6 strings of the guitar. this will get you used to using the lower 2 strings.
