Plain Hobby - A Few Chords More...

14 April 2011 - 12.53 pm

As I blogged about the music class that I attended here, it is only a matter of time until I get better in playing guitar, but it seems like it's gonna take forever for me to just master the 4 basic chords. :P

Since the first day I learn on how to play guitar until today (it has been 5 entire days), I can't seem to master the 4 chords perfectly (and I blame my fingers for that). I (I mean my fingers) slipped over and over again during the transition process between the chords, and it frustrates the living hell out of me!

These are the chords that I'm struggling to get a hold to :

1. G
I think the most in-strenuous-to-my-fingers chord would be the chord G. I can easily nail the chord even with my eyes closed. But in order to get the note right, I need to delay the pressing of the 5th and 6th strings for like, 0.5 seconds. Haha!!

2. Em
Em (E minor, is it?) is also one of the easiest chord to play. It only uses 2 fingers, one on each 2nd and 3rd strings.

3. C
Okay. This is the 2nd hardest chord (for me) to hit. Up until now, I'm still struggling to get my fingers to get used to the position. The position of the thumb is also crucial to nail this chord. :P

4. D
This is the hardest chord for me to play, and in like 10 tries, I will only get it right for 1 or 2 times. I need extra work on this one.

Besides the chords, the other thing I need to focus on is my strumming technique. I strum really really really bad, and whenever I try to sing while strumming, the tempo will go berserk. heck, it wont even sound music-ish.

I prefer strumming using my fingers and thumb, than using a pick. :)

These are the notes that I've printed from the internet, and they're just notes about the basic chords and a few songs that I can play using only those 4 basic chords. The songs include I'm Yours (Jason Mraz), Better Man (Robbie Williams), Leaving On A Jet Plane (John Denver) and a few other songs.

Man, I really hope I can master guitar quick. For those who already know how to play guitar awesomely, I envy you!!
