A Beginner’s Guide to Open Chords

A lot of you beginners have mentioned to me that you’re at the stage where you’re working on chords, so I thought that today I would bring you a handy little video which very simply focuses on open chords, how you play them and what they sound like.

I’ve included a chord chart beside each one I teach right inside the video.

The major chords that are covered in here are: A, B, C, D, E, F, G

The minor chords that are covered in here are: Am, Bm, Cm, Dm, Em

I fully realize there are a LOT more chords out there, but with the handful I’ve just listed you can play probably 90% of the songs that are out there. Cm doesn’t even need to be in that list, I kind of threw it in because it is just like Bm, but moved up 1 fret.

If this lesson is about the right speed for you, you might consider checking out Colin Daniel’s Definitive Beginner’s Guide to Acoustic Guitar. The course is chock full of great stuff geared specifically for the beginner guitar player.
