Re: Blackbird

I guess this is a general question about fingerstyle. Are you supposed to fret all the notes in the chord, or only the one's that are actually picked? For example, the first three notes in Blackbird are part of the G chord, but the only strings you actually play are the B string (open), the G string (open) and the low E (third fret). So am I supposed to fret a full G chord, or is it okay to only fret the third fret of the low E string to make it easier.

Thanks!

You only HAVE to fret the strings you are playing.

However, often you may find you want to fret the whole chord so if you miss a string the accidental note will sound okay, and sympathetic vibration can make the strings you aren't playing sound.

BUT  you can also take advantage of the partial chord idea to help you with tricky bits to make the changes faster.

So it is situational.

Thanks Shadow. I'll work on fretting the whole chord, because I have been hearing some slightly off sounds.
