Never quite "got it" before about how bar chords are rooted on different strings.
Now I get it and it's made a world of difference.
I would honestly say, that I bought BCMS just to complete my collections that you produced such as; Scale Patterns, I IV V, Bass, and Jam Tracks. But I was really happy that I discovered that I still have a 25% missing in my barre chord playing. Thank you for making my barre chord know how to its completeness.
Your bar cord course is what I have been looking for, I had been trying to master bar cords on my own and didn\'t get very far. This course is just what I need. I tried other dvd\'s and didn\'t get very much done but now I am on the right track.
My playing of bar chords has definately improved since buying the course.What I like most is the simplistic way in which you put the training across, making it easy to understand & pick up. It has helped me to change chords alot quicker and easier although I did have to cheat a bit by writing the notes for the E and A strings on stickers and sticking them on the fret board.
My playing of bar chords has certainly improved since purchasing the course.What I liked most is the simplistic way in which you put the training across, making it easy to understand & pick up.However I wished there was a magic wand, that could increase my accuracy & speed when going from an open chord to a bar chord.
Hi Jonathan, after purchasing your BCMS course and having set aside time to study it over the past few weeks, I must conclude that the course is; well... simply marvelous! Thank you for a job well done. Your presentation of this course, in its efficient and practical format, would benefit anyone interested in climbing out of the routinely "open chord syndrome" into a bar-chord world full of infinite variety and complexity. The BCMS course is helping me tremendously. Since I have been following your clear-cut instructions on playing basic fundamentals of bar-chord structure, I have noticed that my playing has been progressively improving over time.
In addition, the finger exercises included in the course is very helpful in improving the dexterity, strength, endurance, and speed of my fingers.
Finally, I would like to say that I, like many of your customers, am the proud owner of your "Unlocking The Guitar I-IV-V" and "Guitar Scale Patterns" courses. These courses are, by far, the best I have seen out there; they are a masterpiece and have helped improve my playing, as well.
Keep up the good work, Jonathan, and thanks, once again!
Hi Jonathan, i bought your Bar Chords Made Simple course and I tell you it came at the right time for me, sick of playing everything with open chords and envious of people playing chords all over the neck. Now that you have given me the tools I need I\'m slowly substituting open chords with bar cords on the songs i already know and feeling great when I venture up the neck.
Great course, thanks Jonathan.
p.s. i also have unlocking 1 4 5 and Scale Patterns, these are by far the best courses out there, cheers.
Jonathan, I have purchased Unlocking I-IV- V, Guitar Scale Patterns and Bar Chords made Simple. I bought my first Guitar in 1975. I started with a little Pop and Rock n Roll. Later I moved to Blue Grass. I love playing. But, I must say I have learned more about playing in the last year with your courses than the previous 40 years. Thank you. I would recommend them to anyone.
Have you ever heard this before? Practice! Practice! Shut up and practice!
Now, that is great advice. Better advice is to practice the right things, the right way. Barre Chords Made Simple directs your guitar study with a goal to understanding the fretboard with confidence leading to competence. You still gotta practice, practice, practice.
Have enjoyed the lesson very much. Have found learning the chords very easy and quick. What is taking time is learning changing from chord to chord quickly and smoothly and that is just practice practice practice. Well done Johnathan......
You have done an excellent job on bar cord structure and understanding. It will open up alot of great sounds once I get the hands and fingers stronger. I am still working on the hand and finger exercises. I really enjoy your presentation.
I did purchase this bar chord lesson with a bit of reluctance as I had a fairly good knowledge thorough seeing these on the internet. I am glad that I did purchase it as I got a better understanding of these chords. You may not know I have purchased your I IV V -and scale patterns, and now I know this instrument pretty well to play the right chords in any given key. Thank You
Hi Jonathan,since obtaining you Bar Chords made simple course, I am now able to preform brain surgery, although my first patient was a disaster, but he doesn\'t talk about it much, hmm. I don\'t think he can talk.ha.ha. Seriously, I think I have purchased everyone of your instructional DVDs and i found them all excellent. At first I was far enough along that I thought I may not need the bar chord one, but I was mistaken, it has proven very useful to me. Please keep them coming, I will always be interested in whatever you have to offer, another job well done.
Thanks again, Cecil
My bar cords have always been hard to do, so I usually try to get by with variations (kinda works, but not great). With BAR CORDS MADE SIMPLE, I\'m getting much better and feel more comfortable using bar cords. Definitely pleased with my purchase.
I just wanted to thank you for making "Bar Chords Made Simple".. I write my own songs and usually stay fairly basic because I "feared" using Bar chords... After watching your video I can now say that Bar chords are my new friends and my songs are no longer basic... In fact, I was working on a new song while I was watching your video and it allowed me to expand it and make it what I wanted it to be... The song "I Want It" was originally in the key of E... Each time I listened to it I just wanted more... I finally started playing with some Bar chords and decided to start the song in E and them switch to the key of D and then slide back to E... I start the song with an open E and then slide up to a B on the 7th fret and then an A on the 5th fret... Talk about changing a sone around and giving it new life!!!! Thank you again Jonathan...
