Hi All,


I have completed GTF 1 and GTF 2 and moved to Rock path and I have just started with it.


Now each lessons takes long time to master, often get stuck and no progress, for example barre chord can't get them right. Therefore I am not only sticking on following the course but I try to play one or even 2 songs  but each song (beginners 2 drops difficulty) for me seems very difficult and sometime no progress there too. I think is normal it's only 1 year I play guitar.


My question


Instead of learning the entire song,  I would look for lessons focusing on guitar licks , either made by Guitar tricks with backing track or famous licks with backing track online to follow up.


Let me share here why and what's my goal.


I am Organ player and piano/keyboard player, I also use guitar amps self-built, to play Organ like Jon Lord did with Deep Purple.


I build amps and I like to make demonstrations with Guitar. Guitar is my hobby instrument. All I'd like to do is learning some chords progressions that sounds like musics, some easy licks that I can show live when I build a Guitar Amp. I want to avoid to call my friend every time I need a Guitar Demonstration for people to hear how the amp sounds.


I would even look for some sort of guitar lessons groove that I can repeat over and over and that is easy to play


Do we have such lessons I am struggling to find the right thing


Any help is welcome

You might benefit from just taking some time to dedicate to working on barre chords.  Start with basic power chords.  Just pick 2 positions to shift back & forth between.  Then try the same with barre chords.  Until you get the basic motions correct with just switching between the chords it's going to be hard to add playing them in time with a song!


I cover barre chords for beginners in my old GF 2 course.

Anders did a whole series of tutorials on famous riffs.  That might be a good place to look for what you are after.

Here are some basic lead guitar licks.

And this tutorial has some basic stereotypical rock riffs.

Hi Christopher


You won't believe but since I followed your old barre chords course you almost resolved my barre chord issues.


I followed and still following an dreviwing:


"I cover barre chords for beginners in my old GF 2 course.


https://www.guitartricks.com/tutorial/450


https://www.guitartricks.com/tutorial/464


Isn't that the other newest course are not so good but you cover with more details the mechanic behind, the positions of fingers, the amount of pressure is explained and how to adjust your thumb accordingly to balance the pressure you need to put, now I can already barre E and Em A and Am correctly especially in the middle towards the highest part of the fret, some difficulty rmain on the lowest part of notes fret, it is a little harder there but I am practicing that part.


Would you be able to suggest me couple of easy songs rock - blues - country where we apply the barre chord concept? Like this,  I can play a song that is easy with my fingers since barring chords is still new concept for me, but I am happy to move now around the fret up and down and barre chords are sounding good some are perfect some a little less but working on it :-)

Glad your barre chords are coming together!  Keep working on it!


"Would you be able to suggest me couple of easy songs rock - blues - country where we apply the barre chord concept?"


Sure!  These songs are relatively easy & mix open chords with one or two barre chords.

Best of success with them!

Thanks Christpher


I really appreciate it, it is incredible how good is GuitarTricks. I was not even expecting a reply on Sunday lol :-)  I am mainly an Organ Player in a rock band context and playing all kind of keyboards but after 20 years playing the same role I want to try eventually to get to a level where I can play some guitar parts in a live context, that is my goal.


I found barre chords particularly difficult, in terms of machanics, if I compare with rhythms, arpeggios and theory I found those very easy to master. In fact there are some relative easy songs I can play right away  and some other whre I get stuck, it is matter of timeand practice, it's barely only a year I play guitar but I spend over 1 hour a day, everyday sometime even 2 hours. :-) I love it


Thanks again
