A Guide for Beginner - More Minor Chords - Page 4
by Christopher Sung
As I said before, all of the chords in this lesson use either the same fingering as the G minor chord in page 2, or the C minor chord in page 3. For the F minor chord, we use the same fingering as the G minor chord, but we play it down 2 frets. The fingering for an F minor chord is shown below:
So how do you go about fingering this? Take your first finger and lay it across all 6 strings on the 1st fret. Now place your 3rd and 4th fingers in the appropriate places according to the diagram. Try strumming it. It's OK if some notes don't ring. That's natural. In time, all the notes will ring loud and true. The important thing is that you now know how to play your F minor chord.
Try playing the music example below, set your loop count to "Forever" in your preferences at the bottom of the page, hit the play button, wait for the music to start, and try to play along with the example. It'll help you become more comfortable with the chord.
