STAGE 1: (3-5 minutes)
Check each chord you know by picking the strings. Look for clean sounds for each chord note.
Often there are 3 reasons why your chords are sounding buzzy or muted:
- You’re NOT pressing down in the middle of the fret
- You’re not using the tip of your finger on each string. TIP: This means you need to push your wrist forwards and bring your thumb further around the neck.
- One of the fingers you are using to press down are touching a string they’re not suppose to. See the tip above.
STAGE 2: (3-5 minutes)
Strum each chord with downstrums only and keep a steady beat.
STAGE 3: (5 Minutes)
Go back to the full rhythm. Hopefully there will be some improvement on the sound of your chords.
Keep On Playing.
