Songs With Barre Chords

If you’re here you know the challenge of playing songs with barre chords.

You’re perhaps finding out there’s no way to avoid them and you will have to face them one day.

My teaching ethos has always been to get stuck into these chords by putting them into a song.

That way you’re more likely to practice them and stay motivated.

Hang on in there and persevere with these challenging chords.

It will take time for your hand muscles to develop, but you will see the day! YOU WILL!

Many of these songs with barre chords have music (Guitar TAB) that goes along with them.
