so i want to be able to change chords perfectly and want to know how you lot at UG go from one chord to another. im no begginer and can play the chords i need to. BUT.... when you change chords like the ones below do you play them absoloutly perfect ? i mean play eight G barre chords then eight Bm barre chords staight after? or do you do something like play seven G chords then put one or two mute notes in there and then proceed to play severn Bm chords? the second way is easier and if you do mute notes in between chords it gives you more time to get the correct hand position for the next chord but should you do that? or practice till you can move from one to another perfect?

G Bm
e|--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--|--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--|
b|--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--|--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--|
g|--4--4--4--4--4--4--4--4--|--4--4--4--4--4--4--4--4--|
d|--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--|--4--4--4--4--4--4--4--4--| perfect chords
a|--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--|--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--|
e|--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--|-------------------------------|

G Bm
e|--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--x--|--x-2--2--2--2--2--2--2----|
b|--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--x--|--x-3--3--3--3--3--3--3----|
g|--4--4--4--4--4--4--4--x--|--x-4--4--4--4--4--4--4----| not so perfect but easier
d|--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--x--|--x-4--4--4--4--4--4--4----| chords
a|--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--x--|--x-2--2--2--2--2--2--2----|
e|--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--x--|--------------------------------|

But just practice should be able to get you to get the chord changes down.

If the song calls for muting in between, do it, if not, don't. You'll get better and better with time. You'll notice some artists who are a little bit sloppy will play an inverted G inbetween chords:

e--
B-0
G-0
D-0
A--
E--

or something close to that, because they continue strumming after they've pulled off the old chord and haven't quite got to the other chord.

Actually practicing Correctly will get you good at it, practicing incorrectly will cause you trouble later on. See what a difference it makes....?
Always waiting for that bit of inspiration.

I do that at times to fill in space between chord changes, but not often.
