SIMPLE SINGLE BAR CHORDING
Simply point the mark on the Single Chord Bar at the chord name you want to play on the Chord Guide under the strings, push down gently on the Chord Bar to mute the out-of-chord notes, strum across the strings, and presto you are playing any major, minor or 7th chord in the Key of your choice.
