How to play the F chord
We’re going to take the first finger and use the pad of that first finger to bar the first two strings: strings one and two, which is the string one, string two. We’re going to place it right behind fret number one. So again, laying it flat, which we call a partial bar, right behind the first fret on strings one and two. Then, we’re going to take the second finger, and place that on string number three. Counting up three strings, one, two, three and place that right behind the second fret. So, taking the second finger, placing it on the third string, right behind the second fret. And you need to curl that finger around. Then, we’re going to take finger number three and place that on string four: one, two, three, four, fourth string, and place that right behind the third fret. And hook it around, and then we’re just going to strum four strings, strings one, two, three and four, with a downward strum, and that is an F chord.
