In this lesson, Marty Schwartz shows you how to play the F#m chord, which is really just an E minor chord that has been moved up a tone. In order to get the F#m though, you’ll need to bar across the second fret.

Stand By Me is a good song for beginners because the strum pattern is fairly simple, and the chord progression is also fairly simple.

    Thank you Marty, you make my day.
    I’ll probably get your dvd soon. But sincerely, is it really possible to learn efficiently without a teacher in live? I don’t want accumulate bad habits.
