The 5th Root Major Chord

his bar chord is a real "pain" for many players, even if they can do it! To be able to do it, AND keep the rest of the arm and body relaxed is the key. The way to get this ability is to make sure you observe the 3 details below. 


If you are trying and trying, and still can't get it, your hand simply needs further development (are you doing The Foundation Exercises from "The Principles", hmmm?) IMPORTANT! Your entire arm WILL tend to tense up as you begin to apply pressure with 3. You must have the heavy arm, and let it's weight come through the 3rd finger, pushing in the distal joint as shown. The middle knuckle being up DIRECTS the weight properly through the finger. NOT having this knuckle up as shown is a common fault, which forces the arm to tense up.


Practice Posing and relaxing the entire arm and body while going into, and maintaining, this form.  (Fingers 2 and 4 are NOT touching the strings).
