So, I really haven’t been spending as much time as I should practicing chords and moving through the beginner program at http://www.justinguitar.com, but have I mentioned I’m trying to buy a house, and I worked 6 days this week, and I’m very busy and important?? Oh. I’ve mentioned that already? Well, it’s true. 🙂
Today, I took 15 minutes out of my aforementioned very busy schedule to learn anchor fingers. If you keep your first finger on the string, it’s easier to move your other finger to their positions when you change chords. I practice the 3 chords I know while keeping my first finger down instead of picking all my fingers up and trying to find the right strings again. It does make it much easier.
