:lol: OK. My excuse for writing this is that I had just spent ten minutes staring at Jemaine over on the BT thread. I *told* you all he was making me lose my higher brain functions, lol. Um, as you all probably noticed but were too kind to point it out - this is actually a D chord. Not a B.
If it makes you feel any better I got B7 and Bm7 mixed up earlier. I thought it was odd when I read it - but had no idea that's a D chord. I always play D using three fingers for the G C and E strings second fret. Thinking about it though, your alternative positioning makes sense as a D too.
I have some more open questions for you all:
Do you know of any alternative positions of chords that you find useful for chords? I haven't really taken the time to learn any of the different positions and I am wondering if I should. (btw- if you click on the hand icon of that link i mentioned before, it shows the different chord positions.)
Question 2: Anyone use a capo? Is it worth getting one do you think?
Finally: Any tips for getting better at working out the chords of songs? I've managed to do one, super-easy one, and I found that a smidgeon of music theory was SOOO helpful, but I'm still mostly rubbish at it. Maybe I need to train my ear a bit more.
