I think you should learn to use the search barre.


Nice play on words lol

Just practice and make sure each note rings out clearly each time you form a barre chord. Experiment with your finger at slightly different angles til you find what works for you.

Do you get a hp and mp increase when you level up? Whats the speed boost like?

Everyone, if he's talking about his thumb, he's obviously trying to play barre chords the Hendrix way (think Purple Haze)

TS, you seem beginnerish, so I'll tell you that TS means Thread Starter(when I started out, I had no clue people were talking to me.)



That is the way to play a Hendrix-Style Chord. You might need bigger hands to pull it off easily tho


Here is a dicection




please tell me if this is unclear.

I don't think he's talking about fretting with his thumb - he's just putting a bit more pressure on the back of the neck with it to try and force hi finger to barre cleanly.

TS - its not about the amount of pressure you put on so much as technique. Get your hand in the right position and it doesn't take any more pressure to fret a barre chord than to fret any other note

EI--5--IA
BI--5--IE
GI--6--IC#
DI--7--IA
AI--X--IX
EI--5--IA
