This is another big step in our Barre Chord Practice. We are going to combine E shaped and A shaped barre chords together for the first time in our exercises.

In the video lesson I make some general points and observations about practicing changing between these different shaped barre chords. The overarching point of it is that every person learns the guitar at a different pace. Some things are easier for some individuals; some are harder. Be honest with yourself about your strengths and weaknesses. Make time to focus and work hard on the things that give you trouble. Don't expect to get everything (or anything!) right the first time or very quickly.

If something does come easily, then that's wonderful! But don't let that throw you when you hit a wall and have to dig in a little deeper. If nothing seems easy (believe me, I have been there), then don't let it get you down. If you have to work hard on everything, your playing (and character!) will benefit in the long run anyway.

Apply nose to grindstone and give it all you've got.
