Alright, the next chord is called the F major chord. Now, this is probably one of the hardest chords to play appeared on the guitar. If you can master this thing, (Guitar playing) the rest is down hill. You are pretty much caught at me. This is going to be a little trickier or something that you have not seen before and any of this other chords because we have to cover two strings with one finger.
Now, remember how I talked about before having that first knuckle bent all the time. This is one of the exceptions to the rule. You are going to keep that first knuckle completely flat right here to cover these two strings (Guitar playing). The 1st and 2nd strings at the first fret. Then finally, you are going to take your second finger and put it on the 3rd string second fret and your third finger on the 4th string third fret.
So, you have this. Now, the hand positioning that you have to is going to be a little bit different. Normally we are like, kind of like this, this has got to come in at a little bit of an angle I found the fingers. If you can come in rather than straight up and down and how you normally do it with a normal chord rather than this way right here, coming out of a little bit of angle.
Remember; keep that knuckle dead flat, then this one here, and that one here. It is a 4th string chord (Guitar playing) and strum (Guitar playing). Now, please do not get discourage if this does not work out right away because this is a chord that will take you awhile to make.
Everyday, when you are practicing three chords, just practice it a couple of time and give some power here (Guitar playing) and you will get it, I promise you if you work at it hard enough, then you will get it.
