I had a guitar about a year and some change ago and I started to learn how to play and I had some issues with the guitar that I'd rather not discuss and ended up not having a guitar anymore. About two or three months ago, I finally broke down and bought an acoustic guitar and I fell in love with it. I love playing, and I love hearing the music that I make. As it stands right now, I know most of the chords except for the barre chords because I can't quite figure out how to hold the guitar. If anyone has any suggestions on how to hold the guitar for barre chords, that'd be awesome! I've actually been working on a song for a few weeks now, and I think it's coming along. Still needs work, but it's the chords that I play when I just want to meditate and play some music. I have a chord progression wheel that really helps me to visualize the basic workings of how to write just about any song that would sound nice. It's been an extremely helpful tool to have, even though I'm just barely understanding how it exactly works. I'm not sure why I'm making this thread, but I figure if nothing else, it'll help me to see how I'm coming along as I add more to this thread.
