About this lesson plan
This lesson plan provides your student with a useful reference to basic barre chords formed on the fifth string. Eight different chord shapes are given with examples in Guitar TAB. A fretboard diagram is also included so the student can learn to create new chords using different root notes. This is a great way to test your student's understanding of how to form barre chords. Simply ask the student to play a chord such as 'C#minor' and let the student figure out the correct chord shape and position.
The chords formed on this string as well as on the sixth string will cover the large majority of songs the student will want to learn. So these chords are a great starting point and once the student masters these, more advanced chords can be looked at.
