SUCKAMANIACS!!!! It’s time for a brand new episode of This is Why You Suck at Guitar, with your good pal, Uncle Ben Eller!!!
So you’ve mastered sweep picking, tapping, power chords, reverse cowgirl, and even pinch harmonics, but when its time to play the FM chord in Freebird, you fall apart faster than a boxcar made by Buckwheat and the Little Rascals…. that’s just not gonna cut it, Susanne.
I can’t help but notice that your barres and barre chords are an abysmal pile of shit. They’re driving a wedge between you and your stepdad, and making your mom so very ashamed of you. But there’s good news: Uncle Ben has some tips and tricks to turn you from stud to dud in no time flat.
Whether you’re playing the simple 2 string barres of classic stepdad rock tunes like Smoke on the Water or Bad to the Bone, or trying to pin down the lethal barre chords of songs like Night Moves, Under the Bridge, or Stray Cat Strut, i’ve got a solution for you. We’re going to take a look at the proper hand positions you need to crush all those brutal barres into submission, which in return will earn you chicks, money, and experience points. You’re going to be leveling up like fucking crazy, kid. It’s like strapping a goddamn Game Genie onto your guitar. Kids still use Game Genie, right????
