Watch the F Chord online guitar lesson by Rich Maloof from Acoustic Guitar For Beginners
The F chord gives a lot of people trouble, but it doesn't have to be so bad. The hardest thing about it is that one finger is playing two notes, which we haven't seen yet. What makes it difficult is that those two notes happen right down near the end of the neck, where it's hardest to press down.
As with other new chords, F is easiest to learn in the context of a chord you already know. So work with the easy-to-play Fmaj7 (F major 7) chord from early in this course. Then you're just one note away from F.
