An important part of this lesson is understanding that you don't to play the F major as a barre chord. The barre chord contains 6 notes, but the F major chord only needs 3. Theory wise, any major chord only needs a root, 3rd and 5th from the major scale. This means that in a barre chord you have a lot of repeating notes. In fact, in that F Major classic barre chord shape you have 3 root notes, 2 fifths and 1 major third. We certainly don't all of that.
The chord shapes we are going to show you take this information into account and remove a lot of the duplicate notes to create a clearer chord that isn't anywhere near as hard to play. Here are those chord shapes:
To help you learn these shapes, we have written a cool little song that you can play along to. The chord chart and tab are shown below. Good luck and have fun!
