Watch the Working Backwards online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Chord Studies: Flamenco Chords Vol. 3

Let's start this off by looking at our destination chord, the second chord in this progression. It's an E form barre chord in the second position. Because both chords in the progression fall under the same hand position, it's important to approach playing the first chord with the necessary finger position for the second chord in mind. So start out by taking a look at how the F# falls under your hand, and your index finger in particular, and then keep that in mind as you play the F#11b9.
