How do you learn to position all your fingers at once in a single move in chords
Practice, there's only that. We all started by putting fingers one by one to make the shape and i still do on some jazzy chords that i encounter once every year. Practice is what makes it easy and fast.
Or it will simply start working after a lot of years playing chords.
Well, practice is practice, being exercices or playing random chords. As long you keep at it and play the chord you'll get better at it.
The only Chords i get without the need of looking to the guitar and placing them one by one like that, are the one where you only fret two contiguous string along 3 frets you know:
Those are called power chords and they are the most common and basic chord that is used everywhere.
Also practice the chords lessons in Rocksmith, they will be simple exercices around chord, starting from the most common and basics and going up in difficulty as you'll get in harder lessons. It's a great way to practice chord specifically as are the arcade games for it.
For the first i don't think i would ever use the second fingering and you will never see it in any official DLC as far as i can remember.
For the second ones it will really depends on what's around. The first one means that you'll probably need to reach something with the 3rd of 4th finger on another strings while the second ones is more likely to add the 1st finger somewhere on a lower fret.
As for the last that's the kind of situation where you either gonna move to a power chord kind of shape or simply do another barre quickly like in that kind of situation :
Overall it's mostly what is around that will make one fingering makes more sense than another.
@Overpopulation It's something you need to get used to, relax and take it slow. When you'll start getting really at ease with fretting an moving around you'll be way less tense and be able to use minimal movement.
@raynebc even if the grace note isn't linked to the next note, it's very doubtful the next note would be on a different fret regarding bend grace note. If anyone as actual tab using it, i'm not against presenting how i would expect it to show up in EOF but doing all cases where a grace note can be use and their equivalent in EOF would be a bit tedious especially considering that GPx to GP5 grace note with bend get fucked up pretty heavily which makes me think grace note should be avoided anyway.
@QOTSANINSOADKORN Korn tuning is just a standard 7 string tune down by a full step so like a D std for guitar but with a low A added. There's no drop at all in korn tuning, it's just lower than standard.
