I've just been playing Razorlight's Golden Touch . . . there's a barre chord challenge, and there's fret hand muting galore too! :shock:

Great song though. 8)

The song that got me into barre chords was "More Than A Feeling" by Boston.....the chorus is mostly G/C/Em/D but then you have to play an Eb followed by Em7 then a descending riff from Bm to to A to G to F#m to A before the solo....

And as an added bonus, the same song got me into fingerpicking!

Still one of my fave songs of all time - and it's 30 years old this year! Maybe we should have a celebration?

:D :D :D

Hotel California was da song that made me learn the barres. Then Green Day songs helped me practice them.

I love barres now. They are my best friend on the guitar. :D

My favorite bar chord excercise is Melissa by the Allman Bros. It uses 4 of them in the chorus and you gotta keep up.

If you want to learn fifth string major barres (eg B, Bb etc) try playing a ukulele for a while and see what a difference it makes. I used to play my B chords like this:

e|-2-I-
B|-4-P-
G|-4-R-
D|-4-M-
A|-2-I-
E|-X-X-

(where I=Index finger, M=middle finger, R=ring finger and P=pinky finger) but had a lot of trouble keeping the A string down with my index finger. I couldn't play the B chord like this at all because my ring finger kept touching the e string:

e|-2-I-
B|-4-R-
G|-4-R-
D|-4-R-
A|-2-I-
E|-X-X-

After playing ukulele for a few months, I now find the second option for the B chord to be really easy. This is because the strings on the ukulele are a bit further apart, so it is easy to learn to play the E chord (which is very similar to the B chord on guitar):

A|-2-I-
E|-4-R-
C|-4-R-
G|-4-R-

Once I had the hang of doing that, I found to my surprise that it was very easy to play the B chord properly on guitar.

Waylon has great tunes. 'Hank' is so minimal on chords, but what a fun song to play.

I learned my barre chord chops playing 'My Generation' by the Who and 'You Really Got Me' by the Kinks.
my skinny thirteen year old arms sure were sore.

When i am teaching Barre chords, i use Dock of the Bay, by Otis Redding. A great song that everyone seems to know, even the 10 year olds. :D
