  1. Hey, everyone, hello! Help me please! 😇 Dm7 = F chord? I have seen a video where a man explained 2 ways of using F chord and one of them was exactly like this. I am confused…

  2. I'm frustrated because I can't press the b and e string properly. It just sounds so bad that I get frustrated and angry. My finger already hurts. How do I make it sound better? I'm desperate.

  3. I feel so clever right now.i made alil riff earlier and I was sure I was playing a dm7 except on was playing it barred from the a string and it sounds lovely with the same shape on the 10th fret I'm not certain what chord it is but taking away that added 7th I believe *probably taking crap*sounds jazzy.
