Play E Minor & A Minor

When playing chords on the guitar, there are a few things to keep in mind in order to produce a clear sound. First, fingers should be curved and not interfering with, or muting, adjacent strings. Second, hold the chord and play one string at a time until you hear a clear ringing sound. This may take some practice, but once you get the hang of it, you'll be able to play chords cleanly and correctly. Curved fingers also help when it comes to pressing down on the strings; too much pressure can result in a muted or muffled sound. So experiment until you find the right amount of pressure that produces a clear tone. With a little practice, you'll be playing beautiful chords in no time!
