Second, I don't really think about strumming patterns, I just do it. I suppose my advice is just do what feels right to you. Relax and let it flow. sounds like a good ...

Re: The dreaded barred chords...

I tend to use just two fingers for "A" shape barre chords, 1 to make the bar(though i actually only need to fret the A string) , and my ring finger to fret the notes on the D,G and B strings, the high E is muted.

Re: How Did You Learn to Play Guitar? (Research Project)

Bought a course called jamorama, and went through that pretty quickly, then just trawled internet for as much info as i could get.
As for music theory, i got the book, idiot's guide to music theory.

Re: Anyone Self taught?
