Shape Of My Heart Chords
So the first thing we’re going to do we’re going to learn the shapes and then we’re going to go into the actual playing. Okay so for the first shape mostly in the beginning is using the fifth, third and second strings. Okay for the first shape you’re going to place your ring finger on the 9th fret of the fifth string, index finger on the sixth fret of the third string and pinkie on the 10th fret of the second string. You’re gonna play the fifth with the thumb and the other two strings with these two fingers. Okay then from there check it out you’re gonna keep the index where it is, but you’re going to bring the pinkie one fret down and you’re gonna remove this one and bring the middle in to the seventh fret of the fifth. Alright then from there just bring the same shape two frets down and then you’re going to bring your index finger onto the fourth fret without removing the pinky. okay then remove this one and the index across the fourth fret and then remove the pinky and leave the ring finger on the sixth fret. So we have… Then you’re gonna go back into this but instead of doing it like this we had this, you’re going to bring this index one fret up and then we’re going to go into this… So for that what you do is very simple. You remove this one from here, the last quarter, you play right there and we have this chord right here that we play that is the third quarter. First we play this from this one and then this one. So what you’re going to do after all that we’re going to go into another part and we’re going to remove this one and bring it into the first string and you’re going to grab the 4th, 3rd, 2nd and 1st strings. I’m going to go into there, so for that you’re going to place this on the second fret of the third string and the pinky finger on the fifth fret of the second string. So now let’s go back to the beginning so we don’t get lost…
