Learn how to play guitar with these beginner guitar lessons from Howcast.
Let's talk about F. F is a very hard chord and in the beginning can be very frustrating to make. So, the first thing you have to do with your first finger is you have to play two strings. Both on the first Fret, on the first and second string. That's the hard part right there. Uhm, the other two are your second finger's gonna play the third string second Fret and your third finger is gonna play the fourth string third Fret. And here you also have to be careful when you strum that you only hit this last four to get the full sound. Now, when I first started I could never get that first string to come out, you know. It takes a lot of practice. I wouldn't worry about that. Let's just try to get as many as you can and then eventually it will fall on into place. There you go, F Major.
