Confused on Keys

13 January 2018 - 09:37 PM

Maybe I am jumping ahead on the music theory stuff, but help me out:


If I am playing a song in the key of G for example, does that mean I will only find the notes in the G key sentence in the song? so I will not see an A flat?


Next if a song is in the key of F and I want to play it in the key of G, I have to change the notes right? If so do they all move up, down, sideways? Help!





D Barre Chord! :(

How do I get a D Barre chord and keep my 3rd finger from muting my 4th string! And forget the E Bsrre's! I don' think I have enough joints in my fingers to make them bend far enough!




Question on Key Sig

26 June 2017 - 02:34 AM

On p40 in the lesson book, it has "Open Chords in the Key of G" and it shows an F sharp symbol  in the key sig. Explanation please? Nothing changes in any of the chords, right? Likewise in the next exercise "..in the key of D", two sharps. Why?



Chord Confusion

Lets say a G chord appears above a measure of music, and it has 4 quarter notes in that measure. Do I strum the G chord once for each note or once for the entire measure?



Finger position?

I know you are supposed to use the tips of of the fingers. I had no issues playing single notes, but now that I am working on chords, I find that I am muting the adjacent strings. My question is, are your fingers supposed to ALWAYS be at right angles to the string, or are they sometimes at a 30 or 40 degree angle?
