    I’m new to guitar but the song I’m learning to play requires me to use a Barre chord which makes sense because with it held I can play 4 sets of notes in a row. I have been unable to play this until watching this video. Thanks so much!!! I don’t know why but instead of jamming my index down which results in cramping, I lightly place is as close to the fret as possible and Whaamo – Easy Peasy
