Everybody wants nice sounding chords…

Unfortunately… not everyone knows how to get them.

It can be frustrating…

Trying to get all the strings to ring out...

Especially those one or two stubborn strings that just won’t cooperate.

When I think back to working on my chords

My nemesis at the time was the D chord.

How to remove chord buzz

I hated it…

I never thought I’d be able to play it…

Ever.

I would pick up my guitar every day…

Hoping that today was going to be different…

But each day I was greeted with the same noises that drove me insane.

The sound of strings that just wouldn’t ring out…

The sound of buzzing coming out of my guitar.

It didn’t matter what position I put my hands in…

Nothing seemed to work.

So how do you remove buzz from the chords?

Some of you may know the answer to this already…

If you do… you can stop reading this article now.

But if you’re unsure how to do it…

You might want to keep reading.

There’s a little-known area of the guitar that helps remove the buzz from strings.

When you press down inside the fret…

Try to keep your fingers as far to the right as possible.

In picture form… it would look something like this...

This works because when you’re in the right of the fret…

It takes less pressure to get the sound to ring out.

All sounds good right?... Well…

This isn’t always easy to do. For some of the chords you play…

It’s not going to be possible to get all the fingers far to the right of the fret.

In these situations… try to get as close as you’re able to.

Will this always help chords to sound great?

No… there are in fact two other big habits to build that will help…

I’m not able to talk all about them through these articles…

But if you’re interested…

I cover this kind of thing in my 30 Day Beginner Challenge.

This is an email course I put together… designed to get people into the habit of playing…

In a manageable way (so you’re not spending hours a day)...

I also share my tips on how to get clearer sounding chords

And I do it all by applying it into real songs that don’t have loads of chords in them.
