i was looking through some songs i'd like to learn to play on the guitar and found that there were some chords i didn't know. So i surfed the internet, found this site, entered the chord i'm looking for, and lo and behold, there was this long round 'shape' on the guitar with an 'R' on it. I've tried my darnest to figure out what it could be. Am i wrong to conclude that it might be the place for the capo???

R means Root. They really need to post that somewhere on that page.

The problem you are having is probably from having to use five fingers when only four are available. What you need to do is learn to bar your chords. By doing this you can hold down all the strings at the second fret with your first finger and then add the rest of your fingers in an Am shape higher on the fret board. It may take some strengthening, but your hand should be able to do it after awhile. I hope this helped.

I am teaching myself to play the guitar using the internet and a book that my friend gave me to help. I have only been learning since January 2006 and I have learnt loads of chords but I tend stick to using A7, Gmajor and Dmajor which I know well, but I am not doing myself any favours cos I find swithing chords hard

how do you bar the chords?

The website I use if I don't chords is
http://www.chordbook.com/guitarchords.php?cb=9ccbe552ad23af5b288398ad7686f6f0

Hope this helps

Best wishes,
Lisa
