Chord Stretch Exercise

Chord Stretch Exercise is a free video lesson by Peter Vogl for beginning guitarists. This lesson is designed to help improve your ability to play chords that require a long stretch. For this lesson we'll use the F major 7 chord which is a hard chord for many beginners to play. To compensate for the stretch many people will accidentally mute strings. Practicing the same chord shape further up the neck is much easier to play. Now try moving the chord shape down fret by fret and gradually allowing your fingers to stretch more and more. To improve your chord playing even more, check out our Beginner Guitar Package.

Here are the chord charts for this lesson
