Caren is playing a vintage steel string 00 Martin guitar.

Depending on your skill level, you will decide whether to use the basic small F major chord, or the more difficult barre chord version. I will demonstrate both for you and you will make your own choice. The barre F will sound fatter, the smaller will be just fine.

This tutorial presumes that you are up to speed on the "Basic Strum". If you are not familiar with it, please feel free to reference Caren's GT tutorial, "Better Strumming" as this tutorial presumes you are familiar with the basic strum.
