Lesson 6 Re: Le Barre

 

Navigation:

 

In this lesson, we will continue our conquest of barre chords with Bm & F#m.

 

x-2-4-4-3-2

 

The Bm chord is formed by barring the 2nd fret and forming the Am chord.

 

 

Exercise 6A

 

  • Set the metronome app to 4/4 and 60.
  • Hold down Bm chord.
  • Strum at every beat for 4 bars (i.e. 16 times).
  • In the diagram below, each / represents a downward strum.

 

2-4-4-2-2-2

 

The F#m chord is formed by barring the 2nd fret and forming the Em chord.

 

 

Exercise 6B

 

  • Set the metronome app to 4/4 and 60.
  • Hold down F#m chord.
  • Strum at every beat for 4 bars (i.e. 16 times).
  • In the diagram below, each / represents a downward strum.

 

Exercise 6C

 

Now we will practice switching between Bm and F#m chords using the song Firework in A major key.

 

The song also uses the A chord:

 

A: x-0-2-2-2-0

  • Set the metronome to 4/4 and 70.
  • Strum at every beat. Recall each / represents a downward strum.
  • Increase the tempo to 80 & then 90 when you get more comfortable at changing between the chords.
