I haven’t bumped into the C major as a barre shape yet, tried it out just now and yeah, that’s a stretchy one for sure. I actually think I find it easier than A major shape though.
It’s got a lovely sound to it too. Maybe because all the notes in the chord are “in order”.
Happy anniversary Brendan. After watching some of your videos during the past year I was sure you had been playing longer as your playing is really good. I was nowhere near your level after a year.
Thanks Eddie that’s very kind of you to say.
To be fair, I have dabbled with the guitar on and off over the years, so I wasn’t starting completely from zero in May 2022. This past year has been the first time I’ve ever gotten serious about it, followed a proper program of lessons, and made a real effort to practice every day.
Prior to that I would ocassionally look up a tab and try to figure out how to play it, get frustrated and give up. Or just bang along to the prompts in Rocksmith as best I could.
